One of the things that President Musharraf has – what he did that impressed me was he clearly understands the nature of the radical threat, and has worked hard to make sure his country doesn’t become a haven for radicals.
Now, there are some there, no question about it. We’ve had a good record of working with the Musharraf government in routing out al-Qaida and capturing or killing al-Qaida. And I would be concerned about any leader who didn’t understand the urgency of dealing with radicals and extremists who want to attack the United States and/or any other nation.
Q: Is Sharif in that category?
A: Well, I don’t know him well enough. I would be very concerned if there was any leader in Pakistan that didn’t understand the nature of the world in which we live today.
