U.S. Helicopter, Pakistani Military Exchange Fire at Border


Pakistan Protests After Bin Laden Raid

Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., chairman of the Senate's Committee on Foreign Relations, recently returned from a trip to Pakistan in which he held meetings with several senior Pakistani government and military officials meant to help the two countries "push the reset button."

Back in Washington, D.C., today, Kerry chaired a lengthy meeting of the Committee on Foreign Relations dedicated to U.S.-Pakistan relations in which several committee members expressed their frustration in dealings with Pakistan.

Retired Gen. James Jones, Jr., former National Security Advisor to the White House, appeared before the committee and said America could improve relations in the aftermath of the bin Laden raid, despite the struggle.

"It is a difficult moment," he said, "but it is a moment of opportunity if cooler heads prevail."

In perhaps the first sign of trust-building to come out of Kerry's visit, Pakistan agreed Monday to return the pieces of a secret U.S. helicopter abandoned in the Navy SEAL bin Laden operation.
