President Pervez Musharraf has claimed that Former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage threatened to bomb Pakistan “back to the Stone Age” if it didn’t cooperate with the United States after 9/11.
Armitage denies he ever said that and President Bush says he knows nothing of it.
Musharraf made the claim in an interview that will air on 60 Minutes Sunday evening.
Here’s an interesting tidbit from today’s MSNBC.com story:
Musharraf said he could not comment because of a contract for a book to be published on Monday. [emphasis Murdoc’s]
Coincidental timing, I’m sure.
