Islamabad, which, as you know, was angry that the Americans, without warning, carried out on the territory of Pakistan operation against bin Laden, silent, after almost two and a half months, Washington shows his offense. These pieces are very hidden, for which even came to Pakistan, Senator John Kerry and the like, provided that they return to the owner — the United States of America, in reality, given the Chinese.
"Immediately after the raid, we have given explicitly realize that no one is required to have access to the pieces of the helicopter. South American Senior bureaucrats have reported this to General Ashfaq Kayani, head of Pakistan's Ministry of Defense, but he just did not listen to them," — said Financiall Times source close to the CIA .
It is already clear that the U.S. is considering the answers to the actions of the Pakistani authorities. The Chinese are not just photographed the helicopter, and partly transferred to discover its fragments.

"For one thing: The new" Dark hawk"Distinguished by special coating" stealth "that hides the machine from all radars.
Not seen helicopter and Pakistani air defenses. And it is not so, as it was considered to be immediately after the operation that the radars only look abroad with its eastern neighbor — India, and just missed a potential threat to the West. The case of South American stealth helicopter is covered with a special radar absorbing materials.
