Washington: In an embarrass­ment to Pervez Musharraf, the for­mer Pakistani dictator, in a lea­k­ed video, was purportedly seen seeking covert US support to rega­in power and telling Ameri­can lawmakers that he was “ash­a­med” of the ISI being negligent about the Al-Qaeda chief Osama Bin Laden’s whereabouts.

The undated video clips, which have been posted by dissident Pakistani columnist Gul Bukhari, also shows the self-exi­l­ed ex-president as saying that he thinks that the negligence of the ISI was “pardonable” as the CIA was also involved in same level of neglige­nce on 9/11.
