Almost an Ally

Pakistan has taken a good step:

Pakistan has returned to the United States wreckage of a U.S. helicopter destroyed during the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, a Pentagon official told Reuters on Tuesday, but the gesture was expected to do little to improve strained ties.

But it was a tiny and insignificant step. They are still playing games with us:

But bits of the helicopter, including the tail section, remained behind and the United States demanded that Pakistan return them to U.S. custody.

So the Chinese could still get a close look at our technology.

This is no way for Pakistan to convince Congress to keep the money spigot open to them.
