The U.S. military has begun pulling its troops out of Pakistan. Earlier this month, Islamabad asked the U.S. to scale back its military presence, following rising tensions between the two countries after the U.S. raid that killed Osama bin Laden. Pentagon spokesman Dave Lapan did not say how many troops would be removed.
