Al Qaeda sympathisers occupied key slots in former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf's government, and Osama bin Laden's presence in Abbottabad suggests the terror group enjoyed significant sympathy, former U.S. vice-president Dick Cheney has written in his memoirs.

Cheney, who was the deputy to George Bush, says after 9/11 the U.S.-Pak ties were bedevilled. "There were major problems. Musharraf's hold on power was tenuous and he had Qaeda sympathisers in key slots in his government." The book has no reference to India-U.S. ties.
