Ex-Pakistan spy chief on WikiLeaks allegations

Gen. Hamid Gul, the former head of Pakistan's intelligence service who is mentioned numerous times in the WikiLeaks documents, called the accusations that Pakistan was secretly supporting al Qaeda lies. Once referred to as the "father of the Taliban," Gul worked with the CIA through the 1980s to fund and train the Afghan Jihad against the Soviets. Many of the Mujahedeen went on to govern Afghanistan as the Taliban. CNN's Reza Sayah sat down with Gul on Monday.
