Pakistan military moving to undercut Zardari over his close U.S. ties

Prodded by secretly taped conversations between Pakistani President Asif Zardari and his ambassador in Washington, the Pakistani military is fueling a political crisis that threatens the country's year-old civilian government and could divert attention from the battle against Islamic extremists. The military believes Zadari is growing too close to the United States and instigated a series of measures in a recent U.S. aid bill that the military has publicly protested.
