Free Dr. Shakeel Afridi and allow him to come to the USA with his family

December 9, 2012/ Muharram 25, 1434
First, let me state that it is a FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHT
to peaceably assemble, and to petition Government for
a redress of grievances. Petition tampering or throttling
is a First Amendment violation. Government officials in
the United States are hereby enjoined from such conduct.
Dr. Shakeel Afridi was sentenced to 33 years in prison, amounting
to harsh confinement, on May 23, 2012, by a court of law in Pakistan.
.
Dr. Afridi, about 50 years old, is rightly credited with playing the
key role - and a brave role - in enabling the capture of the
world's number one terr0r!st.
.
US Representative Dana Rohrabacher has
sponsored HR 4069, to award a
Congressional Gold Medal to
Dr. Afridi, and Representative
Rohrbacher has also sponsored
H.R. 3901, to award Dr. Afridi
the status of naturalized
US Citizen. By the time Dr. Afridi
is able to collect his gold medal
and be handed his US Passport,
he will be in his mid-eighties,
and he will have been deprived of
what should have been the best
years of his life.
.
The negotiating techniques of the
United States in this context are insulting
to Pakistan, as such tactics would be to
any sovereign country - especially an ally
and partner of the United States.
.
These tactics should be replaced with
a quid pro quo arrangement which respects
equality between nations and the rules of
normal diplomacy.
.
Pakistan is entitled, under those rules, to
ask the United States to grant an equal and
equivalent favor of equal value, in exchange
for the consideration of freeing Dr. Shakeel
Afridi. As long as the United States presents
one ultimatum after another, of course Pakistan
will say no - even though the request of the
United States for the freedom of the good Doctor
is something that would be in the interests of
both the United States and Pakistan and many
other countries, to be granted immediately.
.
Scott Davis was also prosecuted in much the
same way as Dr. Afridi was, and harsly treated
in a way which resulted in the unjust pillaging of
over 33 years of the priceless written music of
Scott Davis - a cultural treasure which is
irreplaceable. It is time for the United States
Government to own up to this tragedy and to
make up for it, rather than to continue to try
to cover up and to even go so far as to justify
the actions of corrupt officials and the contractors
who acted wrongfully at the behest of corrupt
state and municipal officials in Pennsylvania.
It is time for both the United States and Pakistan
to restore justice to two men of good character
and completely innocent actions, who deserve to
be better treated, and who have benefited humanity.
It is time for serious negotiations to begin without
delay between the Foreign Ministry of Pakistan
and the US State Department, for a solution to
this diplomatic standoff which is mutually
acceptable to the Governments of Pakistan
and the United States, as well as mutually
acceptable to both Scott Davis and Dr.
Shakeel Afridi.
Inshallah.

To:
President Asif Ali Zardari , Her Excellency Sherry Rehman, President Obama
Free Dr. Shakeel Afridi and allow him to come to the USA with his family

Sincerely,
[Your name]

    2. DR. SHAKEEL AFRIDI SHOULD BE FREED: HAVE WE FORGOTTEN?

      <www.youtube.com/watch?v=uT9jkBGFlr0> 1) The attacks
      on America in September 2001 were instigated by B!n L@den
      who was the eminence grise. 2) The USA declared a new -pattern
      war in which B@n L@den was the enemy, and the point was to
      find and capture him. 3) For TEN YEARS, B!n L@den eluded
      capture, until a brave Pakistani doctor, Shakeel Afridi, was
      enlisted by the US Government to confirm that the man in a
      hideout in Pakistan was a DNA match for B!n L@den family
      samples of DNA which had been taken ten years earlier.
      4) B!n L@den was found and captured; and because of that
      thousands of lives were saved. That destructive man cost
      America ten thousand lives over ten years, and cost Americans
      our freedom. Dr. Shakeel Afridi ended the war which
      began in September 2001, with an American victory aided
      by Pakistan. Is it RIGHT that Dr. Afridi SHOULD BE IN JAIL?
      Don't you feel a moral obligation to work against the
      injustice of his imprisonment? Get others to sign!

      It is a matter for Islam to intervene in and remedy...The good Doctor is a prisoner of the enemies of Islamic justice.All of we who consider our selves members of peace keeping sovereign nations would be correct to support the of this appeal for intervention in this,and all such issues, to the proper chain of command in Pakistan without allowing for ,nor Implying that Pakistan's government is negligent in their duty to take appropriate action.Appeals in America can take up to several years ...as in any democracy simply because of the "case load ,docket load factor." why should this should take precedent over any other alleged miscarriage of justice is questionable by rote of chronological due process adhered to by any jurisprudence,in any court ,in any land.
