Pakistan is the "epicenter of dealing with terrorism."

Minnesota congresswoman Michele Bachmann and Texas Gov. Rick Perry clashed during Tuesday night's foreign policy debate over whether the United States should continue to provide more than $1 billion in aid to Pakistan.

Perry blasted, “if you are not an ally of the United States, do not expect a dime of our money to come in.”
