WASHINGTON - Several senior US Senate Democrats are urging the Obama administration not to disburse any more security aid to Pakistan until it is sure Islamabad is not letting al-Qaida and other terror groups operate there.

The letter to Pentagon chief Robert Gates and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was written by Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein and Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, as well as Senators Robert Menendez, Ben Nelson and Jon Tester.

The discovery of bin Laden in the garrison town of Abbottabad "indicates, at a minimum, a lack of commitment by the Pakistani military to aggressive cooperation with the United States," the senators told Gates and Clinton.
