Richard Armitage sure made it a habit to flap his gums and then sitting back and watching other people get into trouble for his actions.
In an interview to air Sunday on CBS-TV's "60 Minutes" program, Musharraf said that after the attacks, Richard Armitage, then deputy secretary of state, told Pakistan's intelligence director that the United States would bomb his country if it didn't help fight terrorists.
He said that Armitage had told him, "Be prepared to go back to the Stone Age."
Armitage has disputed the language attributed to him but did not deny the message was a strong one.
The former senior U.S. official told Associated Press Radio on Friday: "There was no military threat and I was not authorized to do so."
"It did not happen," Armitage said.
I got to say, Armitage may be totally innocent in this and he never did threaten Pakistan, but after the whole Plamegate debacle, I no longer believe anything Armitage says.
