Sen. Rand Paul on Pakistan aid: "Affect their pocketbook, they will sit up and take notice."

U.S. Officials confirmed Tuesday al Qaeda's number two leader, Abu Yaya Al-libi is dead.   It is the most significant kill since U.S. Navy seals killed Osama bin Laden.

The drone attack, which also killed at least another 14 suspected militants is just the latest incident to strain an already antagonistic relationship between the united states and pakistan.

Over the past decade, the U.S. government has given Pakistan more than $23 billion in aid.

The latest slap at America came from a council of Pakistani religious leaders who called for the death penalty in the case of a CIA informant who helped U.S. seals find bin Laden.

Dr. Shakil Affridi stood trial for treason. He's sentenced to 33 years in jail for helping the United States.
Senator Rand Paul has introduced legislation calling for an end to all us financial aid to Pakistan in protest of Affridi's imprisonment. We asked him why the U.S. left this informant in Pakistan if he was so important.
