Terrorism creates strange bedfellows.

Just over three years ago US-Chinese relations were strained over the crash of a Chinese fighter jet and the emergency landing of a US EP-3 spy plane on the Chinese island of Hainan.

Al-Qaeda have inadvertently pushed the US and China somewhat closer according to Reuters.

U.S. intelligence sharing with China had proved necessary to preventing terror attacks, said Mueller, who met public and state security, justice and procuratorial officials during two days in Beijing.


The FBI opened a small legal attache office in Beijing in 2002, an outgrowth of Sino-U.S. cooperation on terror after the September 11, 2001, attacks on New York and Washington.

Strange days indeed.
