NBC anchor Brian Williams said he has close contacts in the Pentagon and they got him a piece of the fuselage of the chopper shot down in the Bin Laden raid in Abbottabad. Williams says he has one piece and Barack Obama has the other.
Via Sooper Mexican:
“I have something that fits that perfectly. I have friends among the Special Operations folks in the Pentagon. And I have a piece of the fuselage of the chopper that didn’t make it in Abbottabad. It’s one of the toughest things to get. And the president has a piece of it as well. And I didn’t ask any questions.”

The Pentagon only gave the chopper parts to Brian and the president.

For the record – The US never recovered the downed chopper.
Part of a damaged helicopter is seen lying near Osama bin Laden’s compound on Monday, a day after U.S. Navy SEAL commandos killed the al-Qaida leader. Bin Laden was killed in the U.S. special forces assault on the Abbottabad, Pakistan compound, then quickly buried at sea. (NBC)
