Doctor Who Helped US Find Bin Laden Sits Jailed in Pakistan–Will Zero Dark Thirty Nominated for an Oscar Help Free America
Posted Feb 23 2013 5:00pm
We all know the Oscars are up and coming and that the movie has been nominated for an award. This is sad that the doctor now sits imprisoned sentenced to 33 years after helping the US. I don’t know all the details on why he was not given an opportunity to leave the country but sitting in prison for helping the US find Bin Laden doesn’t seem to where he should be by any means. The RHL group is working to bring some recognition and help to see if there’s anything that can be done.
MMRGlobal, MyMedicalRecords.com is a sponsor of the Medical Quack and is part of the RHL Group and has underwritten this effort. Below you can watch the interview with Bob Lorsch and the efforts being made by the foundation.
MMRGlobal was pretty much an unknown entity in the news world until the Hollywood connection with Taylor and Russell Armstrong taking money from the firm was made public upon the death/suicide of Taylor Russell. Last year I sat down with Bob to ask questions and get a better idea of what his companies do in healthcare. Back on topic with this story though it hardly seems fair that the doctor, Dr. Shakil Afridi, who helped the US find Bin Laden faces a future in jail. BD
BEVERLY HILLS (CBSLA.com) — “Zero Dark Thirty” is a contender to bring home an Academy Award for Best Picture this weekend, but first, local activists are joining forces to free a doctor who helped the United States find Osama bin Laden.
Arguably playing the most critical role in the 10-year hunt for bin Laden is Dr. Shakil Afridi, who is currently being held in a Pakistani prison. If Beverly Hills businessman Bob Lorsch has his way, Afridi’s story will steal the show at the Academy Awards on Sunday.
He calls Afridi a patriot who’s been left behind.
Pakistan, which is officially an ally of the United States and receives billions of dollars in aid from America every year, claims Afridi was arrested for other charges, unrelated to identifying bin Laden.
However, the people fighting for his freedom don’t buy it and want Afridi freed now.
