Dr. Shakil Afridi

Dr. Shakil Afridi is the Pakistani doctor who helped locate Osama bin Laden. Without him, and the intelligence work he performed for this nation, that monster would still be running loose.

He is currently being tortured by the Pakistanis on a regular basis. Their intelligence agency (ISI) is probably the closest thing to a branch of the Taliban you could find.

And what is our government doing to gain this man his freedom?  How is the country that bankrolls Pakistan’s military working to free a man who helped us “bag bin Laden?”

That was the sound of crickets. Nothing. Nada. Zilch. Nothing I can find at any rate. The time for “quiet, behind the scenes diplomacy” is now past. The people need to raise a ruckus.

So, since our illustrious government isn’t doing the job it should, perhaps we all need to give them a little encouragement. How about if today we all head to our Facebook page, our own blogs, our Twitter accounts and post the item below:


Dr. Shakil Afridi is being held and tortured by the government of Pakistan. He is a friend of the United States and helped us to find Osama bin Laden. Please contact your elected representatives today and demand that our government actively work toward his release. Use this link to find your contact information and do it now. His life may depend on your call or email: http://www.contactingthecongress.org/


Let’s all work to “Free Afridi”









I made all of my calls and sent all of my emails before posting this message. Hop to it people. This is how democracy works. You spread the word, your friends spread your word, and before you know it we’ve made it happen. Be polite, leave nice messages, but do it today. I may have an impact by myself. But if the 20,000 readers of this blog all spread the word, and their friends and relatives and …. get the idea?  Strength through numbers.

If not now, when? If not him, who?
