Pakistan allowed Chinese military engineers to photograph and take samples from the top-secret stealth helicopter that US special forces left behind when they killed Osama bin Laden, the Financial Times has learnt.
The action is the latest incident to underscore the increasingly complicated relationship and lack of trust between Islamabad and Washington following the raid.

That’s what friends are for......
Pull all US funding from all these Izzlumic nut case countries ASAP. Enough of our tax dollars going to countries that use those to purchase weapons from commies to kill US troops!! ENOUGH!!
Well, I only know of one candidate who will do that.
Cut all funding to these dirtballs!
There was doubt?
And I guess they are right.
IMO. I have to say that now, since everyone does not appreciate that most of my posts are opinions.
IMO We have been played for suckers in Pakistan.
They hid Bin Laden for 7 years from us while accepting our checks.
We need to stop a lot of our foreign aid to people who sell us out, hate us, fight us, or just refuse to help us.
Money we send to feed the needy seldom finds the needy, it is usually stolen or given to their military.
What a surprise -
I’m SHOCKED - shocked, I tell you.
I never would have guessed...
These people are the scum of the earth and even the Saudis do not trust them,they are considered dirty inside!
Yep.We need to cut off all funding to them after Obama is unelected.
Remember the stealth fighter the Clintoon’s gave the Chinese communist in Serbia!
Any wonder why the Chinese are rolling out stealth fighters and cruise missiles every week with this communist as President!
Please. NONE of them will. If anyone thinks any of them will, they are being far too trusting of politicians who will say anything now to get elected.
So we lose 34 great men and even though their bodies are recovered, we lose the technology. In the meantime they throw the smokescreen into the fray that Rumsfeld and etc are to be prosecuted. For “war crimes”. They think we are all fools. This is excactly what they do. Whatever defence can be used to prevent a false allegation, they will Use to defend their entire incompetence and traitorism. That is their war strategy. To defeat Republicans and screw the Country.
Think they will put that little scene in the movie?
Doubt it. Like before there will be two endings.
Remember when Bill Clinton accepted Chinese donations for his change of duel-use tech from State Department to Commerce Department? And now this? These people will be the death of us. I still remember a Chinese General saying we can nuke Los Angeles. Until Clinton's buds at Loral and Hughes, the Chinese had no such capabilities.
When your family and friends go 10,000 degrees, just remember who allowed it to happen in the name of equalization of power. When you're walking around in the aftermath, just remember who set you on that path.
Good thing they are our allies !! Send more money quick!
“Thats what friends are for......”
Yup. China and Pakistan have been friends/allies for a long, long, time.
So how do we break off ties with a radical islamicist nuclear state? Drop funding for who? The people who keep the crazies away from “the button”?
who “leaves behind” a stealth helicopter. this makes no sense. I was assuming it was the one shot down. But from the sounds of this it is not.
So how the heck do we leave a helicopter behind.
Pakistan has always been our avowed enemy. Alliance with India should have been our first move, a long time ago.
To see the article, I must register. Eff that, baby boy, eff that.
Time to cut these back-stabbing Pakis off at the knees.
We should be closer allies with India anyhow.
I would`nt trust India, either.
Look the deal on the Sizzler missiles, along with their new carrier.
"This recent decision makes sense only when considered in the context of the Obama administrations operational worldview. Put simply, the worlds great powersthe United States, the European Union, China, and Russiashare a broad set of common interests. As long as we demonstrate to China and Russia that the United States is a friend, the thinking goes, they will join us in pursuing those interests."
Brings the late Daniel Pearl to mind.
No...but they are a potential counterbalance to China.
Agreed. The practical inability to have delusions about a friendly relationship with Pakistan actually makes things easier for Israel in terms of India.
Is that the same candidate that believes 9/11 was our fault?
Agreed. I once heard a preacher say, “In my humble, but accurate, opinion....”
It crashed attempting to land in UBL compound. This isn’t the one shot down the other week when we lost the seals.
Pakistan is being slowly “Iranian-ized” into a terror puppet state. The US technology there is being held by a union of Paki soldiers and US advisors, but the ISI is trying to purport that it is better to rely on Soviet thinking or bare nukes and nothing else.
We could mount a coup against the ISI narcissists and moon bat claimers, but with the kind of leadership we have...
I think we should threaten to give them up to India, period.
I know what you’re saying, and you’re right, but it’s important to remember that God Almighty has always been our strength, our shield, and our high tower. If we get nuked, default, or otherwise fall into misery it’s because God’s anger has reached saturation point. God’s people, doing what God has commanded, is our only hope.
***...the increasingly complicated relationship and lack of trust between Islamabad and Washington...***
Except for the Kenyan. That relationship is doing just fine.
The ISI has no power of its own other than that given by the army. All its senior officers are from the military.
I would if it were me.
But first, how do you say “F*** You and the Camel you rode in on” in Urdu? Because that’s what I’d say before I cut off diplomatic relations with Pakistan.
President RockinRight’s Response would be:
1. Cut off all aid, funding, and diplomatic relations with Pakistan immediately.
2. All Pakistani Nationals are banned from traveling to the US, that includes permanent Pakistani national US residents if they leave and try to come back.
3. Publicly declare an alliance with India, just to piss them off.
Well, if he actually does what he says. That is the problem with all politicians in our “representive” form of government.
Basically I feel like my vote this time around is a vote for total self destruction or a vote to barely hold our way of life together.
Obviously,if that is the choice I vote to barely hold our way of life together.
Unlesss and until someone gets in there who can truely change this path we have been on for the last 100 years.
especially the last 50.
Anyhow, I am not going to get all worked up unless “we” declare Romney/Perry our choice.
Every time a DUmocrat sits in the Oval Office, the ChiComs get kickbacks in the form of US technology in exchange for campaign cash.
Of course they won't - I know; it was a rhetorical question. But the Pubs need to be prepared to counter-attack. No doubt the movie will paint the UBL operation as a brave decision on Obama's part. We will need to put out ads showing that it was a stupid decision (for a human rather than missile attack) that unnecessarily put special forces troops at risk and resulted in China obtaining valuable intelligence about out stealth capability just so Obama could have pictures to use for political purposes.
BUMP TO THE TOP
“So how the heck do we leave a helicopter behind.”
The helicopter was damaged and the only section that wasn’t destroyed was the tail section. Unfortunately, the tail section contained ultra state-of-the-art equipment.
