Advice from Musharraf

The week's news at a glance.

Islamabad, Pakistan

Catching Osama bin Laden won’t help the U.S. win the war on terror, Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf said this week. In an interview with The Washington Post, Musharraf said the U.S. has been concentrating far too much on military confrontations with terrorists, rather than on combating the Islamic extremism that breeds terrorism. He said that criticism of Pakistan’s failure to find al Qaida operatives on its territory was misplaced. “You get Osama and Zawahri, okay, you kill them tomorrow,” he said. “These two people mean nothing. Do you think the man sitting in these inaccessible mountains is commanding what to do in Spain and London?”
