Pakistan is not fulfilling its obligations

And on Pakistan, what precipitated the President’s tweet about threatening to withhold future U.S. aid?  Is there something in particular that he was either briefed upon or that he noticed?  Because it’s not necessarily a secret that there’s been a long-running dispute between the United States government and Pakistan about how cooperative Pakistan has been with counterterrorism measures and other issues.

MS. SANDERS:  The President outlined a new strategy for Afghanistan and South Asia earlier this — past year in August.  And, at that time, he laid out and said that Pakistan is not fulfilling its obligations.  The President is simply following through on a commitment that he made, because this is a President that does what he says he’s going to do.  We know that Pakistan can do more to fight terrorism, and we want them to step up and do that.
