A three-day national anti-polio campaign is set to begin Monday.
Last month, a militant group warned anti-polio medical teams to stay away or “face consequences.” Militants allege the effort is being used to gather information for suspected U.S. drone strikes in the region.
The militant group cited the case of jailed Pakistani doctor Shakil Afridi, who was accused of running a fake vaccination campaign to help the CIA confirm Osama bin Laden's presence at a compound in Pakistan.
U.S. special forces killed the al-Qaida leader in a covert raid in May 2011. VoA.
These 2nd & 3rd orders of impact are the result of Obama Administration releasing information on the source of intelligence that led to the location of ObLaden. Now, the doctor who provided the information is jailed by an "allied" government, and kids are being denied polio vaccinations by Islamist terrorists, as an excuse of its cover story in finding him.
This is why intelligence sources MUST be protected, even if a politician thinks it will make him sound smarter to have it known.
