Rice urges Pakistani leader to cut affiliation with military

US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Monday said Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf should cut his affiliation with the army and restore civilian rule. At a news conference, Rice urged Musharraf to follow through on past promises to "take off his uniform." "I want to be very clear. We believe that the best path for Pakistan is to quickly return to a constitutional path and then to hold elections," she said.
