Play associated audio
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has confirmed publicly for the first time that a doctor imprisoned in Pakistan was working with the CIA in the months leading up to the raid on Osama Bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad in May. The doctor may be charged with treason for helping to collect DNA samples from those living in the compound, under the guise of a vaccination program. Audie Cornish speaks with journalist Saeed Shah in Islamabad for more on the doctor's status, and how the confirmation of his work with the CIA is being received in Pakistan.
