Every screenwriter in
Hollywood’s mind exploded last night,
with the news that the CIA recruited a doctor in Pakistan to
launch a fake hepatitis vaccination program in order to veryyyy
slowly gain access to the bin Laden compound so as to collect
DNA. There’s a hot role there for, I dunno, Sheetal Sheth or Mindy
Kaling or someone, because:
A nurse known as Bakhto, whose full name is Mukhtar Bibi, managed to gain entry to the Bin Laden compound to administer the vaccines. According to several sources, the doctor, who waited outside, told her to take in a handbag that was fitted with an electronic device.
Now the doctor is in jail in Pakistan for being an American stooge and also, oh right, lots of poor people didn’t get their second and third round hepatitis vaccinations. THEY’LL BE FINE PROBABLY. Ooh, you can call it Abbottabad if it’s all serious, which will remind people of Syriana, or if you go slapstick, you can call it I Stole Osama’s Brain. I can smell the terrible trailer now, because it’s laden with possibilities!
