Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told reporters that Washington would “put as much pressure as possible on the Pakistanis to exercise control from their side of the border.”

“We’ve continued to state that this cannot happen; we cannot have the Haqqanis coming across the border, attacking our forces, attacking Afghanistan and then disappearing back into a safe haven. That is not tolerable,” Panetta said.

Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said at an earlier event Tuesday that ISI had to sever all ties with the Haqqani network.
