WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Obama recently shared sensitive intelligence with Russia and China about Iran's newly unveiled nuclear facility to get the two countries' leaders on board with new sanctions against Tehran, senior U.S. officials revealed Friday. President Obama speaks with Chinese President Hu Jintao, left, at the Group of 20 plenary session Friday.
And the strategy to build a coalition with Russia and China "has already begun to bear fruit," one senior U.S. official said.

And why isn’t this a treasonous act, sharing our national security secrets? Is there not ONE patriot in the Congress to stand up to this kind of tyranny?
Such as? Journalists used to ask that sort of question but this is CNN.
There is no way that Hu and Medvedev/Putin didn’t know about the second facility. They knew, and they’ve probably known about it as long as we have.
China has just signed contracts worth billions in Iran and they are not about to pass further sanctions that will actually hurt Iran.
I assure you that Russia knows more about what’s going on than Obama....
They knew....they all knew.
Yet Obama has no problem putting Israel in the position it is in today. He scraps defense plan for Poland and Czechs.
I can’t figure out if Obama is completely incompetent or if this move is just one more step in his plan to weaken the U.S. and its allies in his advancement toward one world order.
Bwahahahahahaha. New sanctions against Tehran. I bet that really has Iran worried.
They’re still laughing.
LOL! I am sure you are right.
Yep, thanks to ObaMao the Russians and Chinerse now have valuable intel on our surveillance capabilities.
Hell, I'd be willing to bet at least a month's pay that both the Russians and the Chinese have engineers and physicists on site.
China is well aware Iran is pursuing a bomb. The whole world knows it.
The scope of the power (of impeachment) is set out in Article II, Section 4:"The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors."
I have a question. If China or Russia were helping Iran obtain their nuclear capablity wouldn’t they have it by now? After all, we’ve been hearing about this for years and years and Russia and China have had the capability for decades.
And the strategy to build a coalition with Russia and China “has already begun to bear fruit”....
Yeah, both Russia and China are refusing to put any pressure on Iran, Russian now claims it has the ‘right’ to sell S-300s to Iran, and Russian is still planning on putting missiles near the Polish border despite O’ surrending the missile shield.
I guess the strategy is bearing rotten ‘fruit’.
Hell, they already knew about it since they’ve been aiding and abetting Iran all along. What a bunch of crap.
Yes, because they are building it for Iran, but now they know more about our intelligence collection capabilities, and they will be SURE to pass it on to Iran.
Good thing such important secrets would never be given to Iran via Russia, China or CNN.
