Boehner to Pakistan on terror fight: You're 'all in, or you're not in'

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said Tuesday that it's time to seriously challenge Pakistan on whether the country is "all in" in the fight against terror.

Boehner said he had questions about how much the government and leadership of Pakistan knew about the whereabouts of Osama bin Laden before his killing last weekend in Abbottabad, Pakistan, by a team of U.S. Navy SEALs.

"I see an ally, but clearly there are questions that remain about who knew or didn't know about bin Laden being in their country," the Speaker said on NBC's "Today" show. "There's certainly some questions about their willingness to pursue some terrorists, but maybe not others."

President Obama said in an interview Sunday that it appeared as though bin Laden was the beneficiary of a "support network" in Pakistan, though it's unclear how extensive that network was or what it consisted of. Obama's national security adviser, Tom Donilon, said Sunday that there is no evidence senior members of that country's government had knowledge of bin Laden's location, though.

The emerging tension between the U.S. and Pakistan since last Sunday's raid has led to an inflection point in the debate, Boehner said.

"I think it's a moment when we need to look each other in the eye and decide, are we real allies? Are we going to work together?" he asked. "And if we are, you're either all in, or you're not in.

"If we're really going to be allies — if we're going to fight this war together — we need to be in it together, all the time," Boehner added.
