SAN FRANCISCO - US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta warned Pakistan on Wednesday the United States would "do everything we can" to defend US forces from Pakistan-based militants staging attacks in Afghanistan.

US officials, including Panetta, suspect militants from the Haqqani network were behind Tuesday's rocket attack on the U.S. Embassy compound in Kabul, as well as a truck bomb last Saturday that wounded 77 American forces.

"Time and again we've urged the Pakistanis to exercise their influence over these kinds of attacks from the Haqqanis. And we have made very little progress in that area," Panetta told reporters flying with him to San Francisco.

He added, "I think the message they (the Pakistanis) need to know is: we're going to do everything we can to defend our forces."
