The details are an scandal in themselves: Raymond Davies, the CIA agent and Al Qaeda terrorist caught red handed in Pakistan after he murdered two ISI agents who were following him or maybe trying to arrest him, has been pardoned using a back door that would be unacceptable in any other legal system: payment of blood money.
But worse: the relatives of the victims were illegally arrested and pressed hard so they had no choice but to sign the pardon papers. Once Davies is out of Pakistan, as he is now, and under US protection, he will probably be never prosecuted and he will be able to stay at large.
But let us not forget that, besides being a CIA agent, a (former?) Blackwater (XE) mercenary and a murderer, he is also responsible of the following charges of Wahabbi (pro-Saudi) terrorism:
- Collaboration with Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, considered terrorist both in Pakistan and the USA and responsible of the murder of Benazir Bhutto in 2007, and at least 27 different Taliban militants (also considered terrorists)
- Pakistan's secret services, ISI, had accused him of providing nuclear and biological warfare materials to Al Qaeda
So he is an important link to demonstrate how the CIA (and Washington in general) is connected to Al Qaeda (which was originally a CIA creation) and in general to Sunni Islamism, and therefore also to add evidence on how the 9/11 attacks were an inside job.
This explains why he has been liberated but it also says that he should have never been liberated but actually subject to due process, not just because he should pay with prison for even his own life or the crime of murder but specially because there are a lot of critical information that the public must know - in Pakistan as in the USA or anywhere else around the World.
