"The 9/11 Commission recommendations, which were signed into law this year, condition U.S. assistance to Pakistan on Pakistani cooperation with global efforts against terrorism," Pelosi said in a statement released by her office on Saturday. "The refusal by the Musharraf government to accept international assistance with the investigation of the assassination of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, and recent reports that previous U.S. aid to Pakistan has been misspent, raise troubling questions about whether those conditions are being met."
Pelosi added: "These questions must be addressed by the Bush Administration before any additional U.S. aid is sent to the Musharraf government. There must be an international investigation of this despicable crime. And the Bush Administration must continue to press the Pakistani government to ensure that the coming election is free and fair."
