Report: Pakistan gave China access to downed US helicopter

If true, the budget for Pakistan really needs to be chopped. The cost of maintaining the relationship doesn’t match the end result. The Guardian:

Members of the Chinese military were allowed to survey the wreckage of the hi-tech helicopter and take samples of its “stealth” skin, which allowed it to enter Pakistan undetected by radar, the Financial Times reported, quoting US sources.

“The US now has information that Pakistan, particularly the ISI [Pakistan’s intelligence agency], gave access to the Chinese military to the downed helicopter in Abbottabad,” an intelligence figure was quoted as saying.

The FT said it had been told by figures close to the White House and the CIA that Pakistan had given the Chinese access to the helicopter.
