Former CIA Director Michael Hayden says in an exclusive interview with LIGNET.com that it would not be a “winning hand” for the United States to sever ties with Pakistan and that Washington should shift its support to Pakistan’s civil society.

Hayden, who was director of the Central Intelligence Agency from 2006 to 2009 under former President George W. Bush, acknowledged that the interests of the United States and Pakistan are intersecting less than they ever have. But the United States should stay involved by providing economic assistance to Pakistanis and working to improve trade relations, he said.

He was less optimistic regarding Iran.
