GOP Rep. King Says Obama Administration Sold Out Pakistani Doctor
Representative Peter King, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee is worried about the extent of the Obama administration's efforts to protect Dr. Shakil Afridi who helped to locate Osama Bin Laden. Today on 'Mornings With Ken & Bernie' we discussed Rep. King's concerns with Fox News Analyst, Washington Times Columnist and President of BGR Public Relations Jeff Birnbaum.
King told Fox News that the US used Dr. Shakil Afridi's vaccination program to take DNA samples of children from Bin Laden's compound to determine if indeed Bin Laden was living in Abbottabad. With information gathered by Dr. Afridi President Obama issued the order to send in a SEAL team to kill Osama Bin Laden.
Rep. King said administration officials talked about the doctor and his DNA sampling. King issued a statement saying, "They put him out there." King made it clear he didn't know the exact details about what, if anything, the administration may have done to get the doctor out of Pakistan or otherwise protect him. "I'm focused on that they disclosed his identity."
