    “… and can no longer help Pakistan with its key objectives.”

    Since self-obliteration seems to be at the top of the objectives list, that’s probably true. (Or not if they really push it.)

    “The US now has information that Pakistan, particularly the ISI, gave access to the Chinese military to the downed helicopter in Abbottabad.”

    Crikey! Where’s the FT been since May? That was reported on Fox News Special Report by within 10 days of the op’s conclusion! What were they waiting for? ISI confirmation?

    So who cares! All of the countries with big military budgets reverse engineer each others equipment as soon as it’s being used. Every country can find someone with access to one to buy.

    I would have assumed anyway that Chinese spies had seen the working plans for the stealth helicopter even before the first one was built.

  • Maybe if they weren’t flying around executing unarmed foreign nationals without benefit of trial, they might not have left their broken toys lying about for other people to play with.

    Author’s assumption that it is in the best interest of USA to keep the alliance with Pakistan is outdated, absurd and laughable. USA has been spending billions and billions since Pakistan’s birth. There was no reciprocation with sincerity other than deception and blackmail. In the earlier time we needed them to spy on USSR from their territory. That is no more the case. We used Pakistan as a tool to destabilize India. We don’t need to do that, because it proved that India is a trust worthy Nation unlike Pakistan. If we haven’t learned from our 65 years of Pakistan’s history we should be ashamed of ourselves. If anybody argue that we need Pakistan to fight against radical Islam, it is wrong. Pakistan itself created the Taliban and using it as a pawn to black mail USA and lure Billions. It is their survival strategy. If we fall for that; history will blame us not anybody else.
