Clinton has stern words for Pakistan

WASHINGTON – Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Friday the U.S. expects more cooperation from Pakistan’s government in fighting terror and warned of repercussions if a future successful attack in the United States is linked to Pakistan.

In an interview with CBS’ “60 Minutes” to air this weekend, Clinton said that Pakistan has become far more helpful in battling extremists over the past year but that cooperation could be improved.

She said the Obama administration has made it clear there will be “severe consequences” if an attack on U.S. soil is traced back to Pakistan.

Her comments come as U.S. officials are seeking Pakistan’s help in investigating Saturday’s failed Times Square bombing, which a naturalized American citizen from Pakistan has admitted to.
