Panetta concerned about a Pakistani doctor arrested for providing intelligence for the raid that killed OBL

If Panetta said he is very concerned what can (should) the US do about this?

Stephen Cohen, Senior Fellow, Foreign Policy, The Brookings Institution

It exposes the paradox of US Pakistan relations: we are formal allies, yet on critical issues we are going in different directions, and the good doctor got caught between us. More transparency and a clearer understanding of what the relationship is about would have prevented this. Panetta’s insinuation that someone must have known what was going on in the compound only complicates issues.
