No last word: Now, US says it has not taken stock of their F-16s in Pakistan


The case of the Pakistani F-16 is getting more and more curious. Days after the Pakistani military authorities got the Americans to state that the Indian MIG-Bison that shot a Pakistani F-16, was not actually the aircraft in mention, Indians has done one better.

Pentagon has denied that an American defence team had conducted a physical inspection of the F-16s that Pakistan has. Last week, Islamabad said in a statement that an American defence team had taken stock of their F-16 inventory in Pakistan and found out that all their aircraft was intact. In the ensuing tension between the two countries, which had led to IAF fighter Abhinandan Varthaman hitting a F-16 in his MIG-Bison before bailing out and being captured in Pakistan, the point at stake is the make of the enemy fighter jet that was shot by the IAF pilot.
