DR. AFRIDI HELPS FIND BIN LADEN, GETS 33 YEARS IN PRISON
We need to rescue Afridi quickly. (5/25/2012)
Like the U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee that voted cut Pakistan’s foreign aid by $33,000,000 to punish them for sentencing Dr. Shakil Afridi to prison for 33 years for helping the U.S. kill Bin Laden, I was outraged by the Pakistan action. But I was even more upset that when the world news aired on CBS, the top story was about a man who confessed to killing a boy 33 years ago. The low profile on the Afridi story may equate to less pressure on Pakistan to release Dr. Afridi. On the matrix below, the axis term is O. BIN LADEN. AFRIDI is there at an ELS. I sought two men, JOSHUA BEN NUN and CALEB, because like the accused and convicted AFRIDI, they were heroic spies – in the end the only two men from their generation that were allowed to enter Israel. In the open text is THESE NATIONS THAT YOU ARE TO DISPOSSESS. The text was suggestive of how nations of the world were deprived of the possession and occupancy of real estate at the World Trade Center. Right under that is BE PUT TO DEATH, Bin laden’s fate. At the bottom of the matrix is BY THE HAND OF HIS FRIEND. Bin Laden’s death was arranged by Dr. Afridi, who managed to collect a blood sample from him to confirm his identity to the C.I.A. The word RESCUE is on the matrix at an ELS. The U.S. owes him that rescue. With the help of Republican Congressman Dana Rohrabacher, whose opinion follows the matrix, may it come soon.
CUT OFF AID TO PAKISTAN AND FREE HERO DOCTOR WHO HELPED US FIND BIN LADEN.
The persecution and unjust imprisonment of Dr. Shakeel Afridi, the Pakistani hero who helped the United States locate Usama bin Laden, is the smoking gun that explicitly demonstrates the government of Pakistan is on the side of terrorism and radical Islam.
In May 2011, several weeks after the successful raid to kill bin Laden, Pakistan arrested Dr. Afridi, seized his assets, fired his medical staff, charged him with treason and held him without trial for a year. The whereabouts of his wife, whom we believe to be an American citizen, are currently unknown.
Why? Because Dr. Afridi assisted the US in bringing down the world’s most wanted terrorist, responsible for the slaughter of over 3,000 innocent American lives on 9/11.
While a small number of administration officials weakly expressed concern about his plight, he has been abandoned by the US government, the same government he risked his life to help.
This is not the first time Pakistan has acted against the United States. In fact, Dr. Afridi’s recent sentencing to three decades in prison is the crescendo of Pakistan’s anti-Americanism.
For the past decade Pakistan’s government has been playing both sides; they have publicly taken over $20 billion dollars in American aid money since 9/11 to allegedly help with the war effort against terrorism, while behind the scenes they have been using much of that money to support and coordinate insurgent groups (such as the Haqqani network that is now murdering Americans in Afghanistan), arm their military to fight India, and line the pockets of top generals in league with radical Islamacists.
It is despicable and unforgivable that Pakistan has not held anyone responsible for allowing bin Laden to live in a mansion in a major Pakistani city for years, but has put in jail the man who found him.
Despite plentiful evidence, no one in Pakistan has been charged with facilitating the deadly terrorist assault by Lashkar-e-Taiba in Mumbai. It is foolhardy and self-delusional for the US government to continue to give money, hand over fist, to the Pakistani military and intelligence services who clearly direct and support terrorist groups to further Pakistan’s sphere of influence.
Retired Admiral Michael Mullen, the former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said that Pakistani intelligence directed the Haqqani Network to carry out an “assault on our embassy [in Kabul]” and said that “the Haqqani network acts as a veritable arm of Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency.”
Pakistan is openly at war with the United States, yet the Obama administration refuses to acknowledge this fact. Since last fall, Pakistan has closed all their ground transportation corridors to supply our combat troops in Afghanistan. This is harmful to our efforts in Afghanistan and has forced the Department of Defense to use other supply routes through central Asia, roughly doubling the cost of transportation to U.S. tax payers. Pakistan has offered to reopen their roads to supplies, but only if the United States pays a ransom of $5,000 dollars per truck.
In February of this year I introduced two pieces of legislation to directly help Dr. Afridi and to bring more attention to his cause. The first H.R. 4069, would award Dr. Afridi the Congressional Gold Medal for his courage and outstanding acts to help our country. That bill is now languishing in the House Financial Services Committee and has not been voted on.
Additionally, I introduced HR 3901, a bill to grant Dr. Afridi U.S. citizenship; a sign that the American government has not forgotten him and will not forsake him.
Neither bill has yet to receive a vote. Now is the time for Congress to do the right thing and bring these bills to the House floor. Dr. Afridi has been waiting for help for over a year and the US Congress and Obama administration are failing him.
Congress is now passing appropriations bills that provide billions more in aid to Pakistan. This is wrong. Pakistan believes America is weak and foolish, because so far, that is how we have been acting. Like an ostrich with its head in the sand, we refuse to see the truth.
Our government knows what is happening, but it remains quiet, hoping the problem will go away. This is self-defeating. It is time to cut off all aid to Pakistan and to demand the release of Dr. Afridi.
STATISTICAL SIGNIFICANCE OF THE MATRIX. As per my standard protocol, no statistical significance is assigned to the axis term, here O. BIN LADEN at its sixteenth lowest skip. By far, the most significant term found was AFRIDI. Before downgrading combined values by 16 to account for ELS rank 16 of the axis term, he was in this matrix against odds of about 308 to 1, however the minimum requirement for this experiment was to have both Bin Laden and Afridi on it. Bin Laden was only is 6 letters in Hebrew, so I chose to include his first initial (an alef for O or U) in the axis term. There are two spellings for JOSHUA in Torah (see Numbers 13:16 for his name change). Odds against having one of these names present at skip +1 were about 10 to 1. For CALEB (only a 3-letter Hebrew name), odds against having it at skip +1 were about 2.3 to 1. The open text phrases THESE NATIONS THAT YOU ARE TO DISPOSSESS and BY THE HAND OF HIS FRIEND were not included in the calculation because they were only found a-postereori. I had no intention of seeking them when I began the experiment. However, I was looking for a death sentence for Bin Laden. The phrase BE PUT TO DEATH was one of two phrases that I sought. It was there against odds of about 11 to 1. The least significant term was RESCUE. I sought two 4-letter synonyms. On a matrix this big it was a virtual certainty that I would find one of them. Had the matrix been based on the lowest skip of O. BIN LADEN, it would have existed against odds of about 90,511 to 1; but when downgraded by a factor of 16 to account for the axis term ELS rank of 16, the matrix exists against odds of about 5,657 to 1. This is still quite significant. I pray that our efforts to rescue this great man will be much more significant.
