Pakis Let ChiComs Get Access to Downed Stealth Chopper From Bin Laden Raid

It was just the tail section and a burned out hull, but that may have been enough.

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 US now has information that Pakistan, particularly the ISI, gave access to the Chinese military to the downed helicopter in Abbottabad,” said one person in intelligence circles, referring to the Pakistani spy agency. The Chinese engineers were allowed to survey the wreckage and take photographs of it, as well as take samples of the special “stealth” skin that allowed the American team to enter Pakistan undetected by radar, he said.

……The Seals used a hammer to smash the instruments then rigged up explosives to detonate it in an effort to keep classified military technology secret, but the tail section landed outside the compound wall and remained intact….

At the time, Pakistani officials, who were livid that the US carried out the raid without informing Islamabad first, hinted that the Chinese were interested in looking at the wreckage, and photographs of the tail circulated on the internet. But people close to the White House and the Central Intelligence Agency have told the FT that the Chinese were in fact given access to the helicopter.

Beijing has a strong military relationship with Islamabad and is a major supplier of weapons to the Pakistani military.

Pakistan has been uncooperative in the war against Islamic terrorists. The Inter-Service Intelligence (ISI) has Taliban and Al Qaeda moles on its payroll, and terrorist cells run back across the Afghan border after re-grouping, thanks to the Pakistan regime.  Any resurgence of the terrorism in Afghanistan can be directly attributed to terrorist groups operating carte blanche in Pakistan, abetted by the Pakistani government and ISI.  There’s a reason why we didn’t telegraph our intentions when we went after Bin Laden.
