You must penetrate Al-Qaeda, Bush tells Musharraf
Dean Nelson, Islamabad

PRESIDENT George W Bush yesterday warned General Pervez Musharraf, Pakistans military leader, that he must improve his intelligence-gathering to defeat Al-Qaeda and the Taliban in the war on terror. His comments were made amid concern that Islamabads grip on the militants within Pakistans borders may be loosening.
On the last leg of his Asian tour, the American president reiterated his support for Musharraf, who seized power in a military coup in 1999, but urged him to embrace democracy in the campaign against terrorism.

The best way to defeat Al-Qaeda is to share good intelligence, to locate them and then be prepared to bring them to justice, Bush said.

Despite the evident strains in the Washington-Islamabad relationship, Bush told Musharraf that the two countries had developed a broad and lasting strategic partnership.

Theres a lot of work to be done in defeating Al-Qaeda, the president said.

The contentious issue of sharing intelligence was highlighted in January, when an American missile aimed at Ayman al-Zawahri, Al-Qaedas deputy leader, killed at least three foreign militants and a number of civilians in a Pakistani border village. Pakistan claimed it had received no notice of the attack, which prompted countrywide riots.

Many Pakistanis continue to oppose Musharrafs alliance with the Bush administration and yesterdays visit provoked days of demonstrations.

3. I can almost hear him slurring his words
the man is definitely drinking again and it makes him even more stupid. I wonder if Musharraf choked out "Tora Bora" achoo?

5. Good God, he DOES sound like a drunk, doesn't he? I asked Mrs R just
yesterday if she though there was any other president / prime minister in the world who said "uh" so frequently.

It's SO embarrassing.
