President George W. Bush met Friday with Pakistani President Gen. Pervez Musharraf, who has claimed that after the September 11 attacks a former State Department official pressured his Muslim nation into cooperating with the US in combating terrorism. In an interview to air Sunday on CBS television's "60 Minutes" program, Musharraf said that after terrorists struck US soil in 2001, Richard Armitage, then deputy secretary of state, told Pakistan's intelligence director that the United States would bomb his country if it did not help fight terrorists. "The intelligence director told me that (Armitage) said, `Be prepared to go back to the Stone Age,"' Musharraf told "60 Minutes."
