Letter to the Editor – Dr. Shakil Afridi and Obama

Dear Editor, Stand Up America,

I appeal to all Montanan veterans to reconsider their Presidential vote. Today is a sad day.

I am no longer angry to have Obama as President, I am sickened. In Pakistan, a man who saved countless military lives by his heroism, was arrested and imprisoned, sentenced to thirty-three years in prison.

Dr. Shakil Afridi

He was a medical doctor, a Pakistani. He secretly saved Americans. He sacrificed his life for our soldiers and our country.

But he was left in Pakistan to die, and be forgotten by an American leader who appears to be a despicable human being.

The medical doctor in question initiated a vaccination program for Hepatitis B in the villages to receive blood sample that led to the identification and location of Osama Bin Laden.

He reported his discovery to our military and we destroyed Bin Laden in a raid.

This doctor is an authentic hero, an American hero, besides a Pakistani hero.

But he was deserted today by a man who stole all the credit for this military act that demanded backbone, courage, and dedication to a higher cause for the welfare of others.

No attempt was made by Obama to get this doctor out of that country, or acknowledgment as to who was responsible for that heroic mission.

Obama turned his back and took credit for it all.

This is a sad day for the United States military and for veterans, no matter what political party they adhere to. As a U.S.A.F. Veteran, and a member of the D.A.V. I would rather see the entire congress turn Democrat then have that fellow sitting in the Whitehouse another day.

He has finally revealed himself as a self-centered opportunist, and a coward.

Nothing that our military should respect.

Sincerely,

Mike Donohue
