House Intel chairman urges caution on Pakistan

WASHINGTON (AP) - The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee is cautioning against moving precipitously to cut or terminate U.S. aid to Pakistan.
Michigan Republican Mike Rogers says the discovery of Osama bin Laden in a sealed-off compound near a Pakistani military base "is embarrassing to them." He tells ABC's "Good Morning America" he believes that institutional entities in Pakistan like the army, intelligence service and government likely didn't know about bin Laden's presence, although he also says that it's possible "some individual might have known."
Rogers says he worries about a "love-hate relationship" with Islamabad. At the same time, he cautions against terminating U.S. assistance. Rogers says "we've got to be careful. They still need us and we still need them. Are they the best partners we've ever had? No."
