LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf says the relationship between Pakistan and the United States is at its lowest point and plagued by "total mistrust."
Musharraf told an audience in Arkansas Thursday that the Pakistani military was guilty of "terrible negligence" in allowing Osama bin Laden to go undetected before he was killed in a U.S. raid in May. And he says Pakistan hasn't done enough to target Taliban-affiliated militants known as the Haqqani network.
But Musharraf says U.S. leaders are wrong to accuse Pakistan of aiding militants. He blames American mistakes in Afghanistan for the Taliban's re-emergence.
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was in Islamabad on Thursday for meetings with Pakistan's leaders. Clinton said the U.S. would go after militants in Pakistan with or without the government's help.
