Aafia and Raymond -- Justice of the Mighty



Aafia: Kidnapped, tortured, held in secret and then in isolation
>> Raymond: Pampered, full access to lawyers of his choice and his embassy

Aafia: Vienna Convention disregarded
>> Raymond: Vienna Convention invoked

Aafia: US & Pak govts worked tirelessly to ensure she never goes free
>> Raymond: US & Pak govts working tirelessly to ensure he goes free as soon as possible

Aafia: Harmed no one
>> Raymond: Killed 2 human beings and caused 1 additional death 

Aafia: imprisoned for 86 years for "attempting to kill her captors"
>> Raymond: Given immunity and expected to be released in a few days

Aafia: Citizen of Pakistan
>> Raymond; Citizen of USA  

To quote from Mel Brooks: "Its good to be king!"

And since the death of the widow of one of the victims of Raymond Davis, this is turning out to be even more pathetic.
