Tell you -- your reporting on 48 year old -- -- -- afridi convicted last week of high treason by a Pakistani kangaroo court.
Doctorate cents a 33 years in prison -- relatives told Fox News he has been tortured.
Because Obama has not said anything publicly about this and Fox News White House guy Ed Henry asked about that today.
We have made our views known that the doctor in question here.
Should not be held did you -- did nothing him.
Would justify him being held and we're certainly consulting with -- the Pakistani government on this matter but I don't have any other details for you no plan B I mean obviously you made -- case Pakistan still have.
And I just said they were in consultations with -- making her views known to the Pakistani government.
Dries up from Washington of Fox's political analyst Charles Krauthammer -- -- -- -- you this evening to advise President Obama on Pakistan you tell -- you.
Three point -- number one.
Cut out -- -- -- cities our defense -- to say this -- wasn't -- Pakistan.
He was helping us to get the worst criminal in the world.
The problem -- defenses.
That those stories out either they -- it -- Wheatley could.
That the good doctor had no idea who we were after when he was helping us.
So that completely undermines that story so stop the leaks to stop the stupid defense's second we -- have the president and house.
When you hear in consultations you want to -- Have the president themselves say that we're cutting aid to Pakistan and -- half today.
It is not released in three months we're gonna cut it again in half and in six months it's over but here's the most important -- point three.
Save a way to -- you want to get a reaction on the pakistanis.
Say the word India announced that the secretary of state.
Is gonna go on a very ostentatious.
To visit to New Delhi.
To cement a new strategic relationship.
Between the United States and India we want to announce to the Pakistan base that on 9/11 we made them the -- -- Of our policy in South Asia.
Colin Powell and senator state -- the presidents and he said he needed help us and Afghanistan.
In a cutoff for help to the Taliban or we're gonna.
Begin to bomb -- into the stone age.
Pakistan reacted became our allies.
A decade later they don't care about us they have no respect for us they are able to do this stuff for the good doctor for examples.
-- impunity so what we tell the Pakistan eases you understand it we're leaving yes Obama essentially ran up the white flag.
At the NATO summit in Chicago we said we're out.
We're not gonna stay here and the pakistanis are calculated.
Americans are gone we can distant as much as we -- for now however however do just what they hear.
If we tell them we're not leaving the region entirely we've just leaving our friendship with the U.
And -- to reinforce.
Our alliance with their arch enemy.
Didn't hear -- yeah that's a way to put pressure on him but there is something.
I had a debate with Laura -- a few weeks ago about the Chinese dissident and Ingram was -- in the Obama administration by saying all they ought to do this -- would do that I said look behind the scenes.
And and I knew that because we do investigations here.
And they're gonna get a release -- that -- Now what you saw in the Ed Henry sound byte was the Obama administration saying we're consulting with them.
And may be and I'm giving the president.
The benefit of the doubt I don't think he's been strong enough obviously.
But maybe they are maybe they do have a deal in the works and they don't wanna go out humiliate Pakistan because they think they can get the guy -- If all of that is true.
Any of the administration knows that.
And actually getting somewhere with the consultations.
And it's clear that the pakistanis are just looking for a face saving way.
To get out of this and find then you go ahead -- that you get it done you don't make anything in public.
If on the other hand this is his consultations and -- I'm getting anywhere.
This is a humiliation the United States but -- -- -- that it's a warning to anybody in the world who thinks.
So now are I don't know -- America.
Don't don't know -- -- literally.
Yeah where were we in the weeks and months after the bin Laden -- why couldn't we extricate this guy.
Why do we have the CIA if not to extricate a guy who helped us in this and who we know we just send the Navy SEALs and again and a -- you know and and I agree with you I think this is like -- -- getting aware if we're not getting away any secret negotiations.
We got to come out publicly and tell the world moving into a huge strategic shift.
In the region like -- Kissinger to China and we have to shift our center of gravity and that will surely get Pakistani.
Pakistan he -- five.
