So if the Pakistani doctor who helped the United States find Osama bin Laden gets 33 years in prison for treason, does this mean the Pakistani government has explicitly tied itself and its national interests to Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda?

I recognize the complexity of Pakistani life and internal politics, but this seems like a really stupid move on their part. It also seems like a priority of the U.S. needs to be getting the Pakistanis to let him go into exile (and in fact Clinton and Panetta are on the case). Which could be the part of the point–if the Pakistanis can make the doctor a bargaining chip, they win something.
