In an article in the Suntimes today the reported threat to "bomb Pakistan back to the stone age" was repeated, allegedly told to a Pakistani Intelligence Officer and passed on to Musharraf.
Furthermore the U.S. made some demands on Pakistan about use of their military bases:
Musharraf told 60 Minutes that Armitage's message was delivered with demands that he turn over Pakistan's border posts and bases for the U.S. military to use in the war against the Taliban in Afghanistan. Some were ''ludicrous,'' such as a demand he suppress domestic expression of support for terrorism against the United States. http://www.suntimes.com/output/news/cst-nws-pak22.html
A little known fact (and not mentioned in the Suntimes article but made exclusive to BW members) is that this demand, that Pakistan relinquish control of its military bases, was sent to Musharraf via a diplomatic courier in the form of the picture reproduced below and in the form of a video http://allyourbase.planettribes.game...eo1_view.shtml
