WASHINGTON - Pakistan is going to reduce sharply the number of US
military trainers allowed in the country, the top US military officer
said on Thursday, acknowledging strains in the uneasy alliance a month
after the killing of Osama bin Laden.
Admiral Mike Mullen, outgoing chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff,
declined to offer figures on Pakistani plans to cut the military mission
but said the number of US trainers was "not going to zero."
