Full Transcript of Chris Cuomo's Interview with Former President of Pakistan Pervez Musharraf

CUOMO: No no no, I don't believe that at all. That not fair, Mr. President, that's not fair. I'm just saying that when OBL is found less than a mile from a major military compound in a suburb of your capital, it raises some eyebrows and you would think Pakistan would be very forthcoming about what went wrong.

MUSHARRAF: Well, no. This was a very serious fault, but let me also say that taking it to an extent that you want to alienate Pakistan, you will be a loser. And Pakistan will also be a loser, there's no doubt. The world will lose. Because if an irresponsible policy is developed because of this incident. After 9/11 took place, did you take your intelligence and your military chiefs to task? That was a big national intelligence failure. (CC - Fair point) Did you take the intelligence and army chiefs to task (inaudible) national intelligence failure. Did you take them to task? It was also a terrible failure.

CUOMO: It's a fair point and good perspective. Mr. President, I appreciate you taking the time. You're always forthcoming. Thank you for the opportunity. I wish you the best going forward. I look forward to speaking to you again.
