Clinton warns Pakistan about Taliban

WASHINGTON (AP) - Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is telling Islamabad the U.S. wants more of an effort to crack down on the terrorist group Taliban-in-Pakistan.

Speaking yesterday on CBS's "60 Minutes," Clinton warned of "severe consequences" if an attack on U.S. soil were to be successful and traced back to Pakistan.

Attorney General Eric Holder yesterday claimed a Taliban-in-Pakistan connection to the failed attack in Times Square

A Pakistani army spokesman -- who last week said he doubted the Pakistani Taliban had anything to do with the failed bombing -- declined comment, saying the country's civilian government should respond.

Until recently, Washington has said Islamabad was doing all it could.
