Mazzetti notes that US officials acknowledge they don't have "definitive proof" the Chinese obtained access to the helicopter remains in Abbottabad--but he cited one source knowledgeable about the incident who was "certain" that Chinese engineers had taken photos and samples of the wreckage. Pakistani officials denied the accusation when US counterparts raised it, Mazzetti reported. The remains of the Black Hawk helicopter have been returned to the United States. reported Sunday that Pakistan's ISI spy agency allowed Chinese military engineers to photograph and take samples of the destroyed US stealth helicopter. This latest round of intelligence leaks highlights the sensitive state of US-Pakistani relations in the aftermath of the May 2 raid. Since the Navy SEAL team entered the country without any advance consultation with Pakistani officials, the successful raid was a considerable embarrassment to Pakistan's security establishment. However, while the US intelligence assessment may be new, American officials have long suspected that the Chinese might gain access to the downed helicopter via Pakistan's intercession. "The whole scoop seems, at best, the effort of someone trying to force the administration to admit" that Pakistan's military chief is not dealing in good faith, Wheeler wrote. "At worst, it's another case of discovering gambling going on in the casino." "The Chinese may have not derived too much value from mere pictures of the helo, but the very fact that photos were taken and sent to them is another real trust-buster," another former senior US official and South Asia hand told the Envoy Monday. s=2143996573&pt=storypage&t=1792808951&sec=MediaInfiniteBrowse&ret=9 63f4410-622f-5899-99e3-f042ea79df71%3A9c579423-dd2b-3d16-bfab-dee54d8ef 28e%3Abdcd187c-6fe0-5c53-821f-187f99c798bf%3A90eab9ed-aa4b-396c-a3b0-81 acbce36134&pstaid=ddcb11b8-c1ca-3ca1-a73d-f7d151813ac3&csrcpvid=Pfi27kP DlDpXEUIYfhzKmwBlRTfow05JjFoADXQT Today on Yahoo!
