Former President, Gen (R) Pervez Musharraf appears on CNN’s Fareed Zakaria program GPS. He gives candid responses to Zakaria’s probing questions with frankness and outspokenness including calling a spade a spade with respect to Pak-Afghan relations, Pak-US friendship over the years, shortcomings of the War on Terror being fought in Afghanistan, and how Taliban now control more than 50 percent of Afghanistan thereby becoming a problem for Pakistan rather than the other way as being perceived by many.
Fareed Zakaria of CNN’s sit-down with Pervez Musharraf was an exclusive interview. Musharraf is the guest for the hour and they also discuss his years in power and resignation, Pakistan’s deadly struggle against the Taliban, strained relations between India and Pakistan, and Benazir Bhutto’s death including charges that he might have been involved in it.
Plus, Musharraf explains what happened to America’s $10 billion in aid to Pakistan over the last 10 years, and whether or not he would consider running again for office. A Must Watch!
