Mullen: U.S. and Pakistan have 'a vital relationship'

This morning, President Barack Obama is expected to name a replacement for the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Michael Mullen, who is retiring at the end of the summer.

Adm. Mullen has also just returned from a trip to Pakistan, where he and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton addressed the relationship that has been strained since the raid on Osama Bin Laden's compound.

Admiral Mullen joins American Morning live this morning with Christine Romans and Alina Cho to explain why this relationship with Pakistan is so important, and to share his Memorial Day message with the troops.

    Lets see, they blocked other accesses to other boarder areas, and then we get attacked because the Taliban mysteriously knows where are troops are going to be moviing, they take our billions in Aid to buy planes from China, they hid Bin LAdin for years right under our nose......

    Yeah, great relationship there. We try to bribe them to be our friends, and they take our money, laugh at us and see how much damage they can do to us.
