WikiLeaks cables: US agrees to tell Russia Britain's nuclear secrets
The Telegraph ^ | 9:25PM GMT 04 Feb 2011 | Matthew Moore, Gordon Rayner and Christopher Hope

Posted on 02/04/2011 2:03:33 PM PST by tje

The US secretly agreed to give the Russians sensitive information on Britain’s nuclear deterrent to persuade them to sign a key treaty, The Daily Telegraph can disclose.

Information about every Trident missile the US supplies to Britain will be given to Russia as part of an arms control deal signed by President Barack Obama next week.

Defence analysts claim the agreement risks undermining Britain’s policy of refusing to confirm the exact size of its nuclear arsenal.

Wikileaks will eventually be seen as the most devastating incident of espionage ever against the U.S. It will be decades before the entire impact to our diplomatic and espionage corps can be determined.

I found this reference to Wikileaks on a Russian website:
WikiLeaks reveals 9/11 secrets

The scandalous Australian website WikiLeaks continues to publish U.S. diplomatic correspondence. In a secret dispatch from Qatar, previously unknown details about the terrorist attacks on September 11th, 2001, were disclosed.

On February 11th, 2010, employees of U.S. embassy in Doha were sent a secret message from U.S. intelligence agencies with information on a citizen of the United Arab Emirates by the name of Mohamed al-Mansouri. The dispatch suggested that the UAE citizen was on a list of persons who posed a threat to air travel of the U.S. and other countries. The letter noted the need to investigate Mansouri for aiding in terrorist activities.

As the authors of the memo clarify, before the September 11th tragedy, three alleged terrorist accomplices arrived in the U.S. to reconnoiter potential targets of attack. On August 15th, 2001, Qatar nationals Meshal Al-Hajri, Abdullah Fahad, and Ali al-Fahayd arrived in the U.S. During trips to New York and Washington, the individuals visited, among other facilities, the World Trade Center, the White House, and the Statue of Liberty.

A week after arriving in America, the Qatar citizens went to Los Angeles and stayed at a local hotel, where they raised the suspicions of the staff. After hotel staff noticed clothes reminiscent of pilot uniforms, as well as printouts of flight schedules, the men refused to let their rooms be cleaned.

According to the diplomatic cable, on September 10th the group intended to fly to Washington aboard the same flight that one day later was hijacked and crashed into the Pentagon. The three Qatari citizens did not take that flight, however, and flew instead to London, from where they returned to their homeland.

This group was not mentioned in the foreign media or the official report by the commission investigating the September 11th attacks. An FBI investigation found, however, that a third party paid for the tickets and Los Angeles hotel bills for the Qatari group. It turned out to be Mohamed al-Mansouri, whose involvement in the terrorist attack was mentioned in the diplomatic dispatch...(SNIP)

So, our president is spying on Britain on behalf of Russia.

Isn’t there a consequence for espionage?

Odds are the Brits agreed

On what basis are you saying that? Why wouldn't the Brits themselves then control what information they gave to Putin?

The fact that Obama--in his neo-anti-colonial feeling*--has strained our relationship with the UK worse than anyone since say, James Madison in the War of 1812, would have me suspect otherwise...

*That's FEELING, NOT thinking...

I’m cheering on the United States.

The Diplomatic Corps has been as much of a reason of our being a Superpower in the last 100 years as our Military.

Wikileaks was a direct attack against our Diplomacy.

Well, let's see. That little s**t Assange still might wind up starting World War III by throwing the Middle East into turmoil, he's probably caused a significant diplomatic incident between the United States and Great Britain through a clear act of espionage (though context on whether the Brits agreed to the disclosure is not immediately apparent) and God knows what else.

But wait. You're thanking God. You and I must serve different deities.

what is more amazing is every day I sit there and think...well nothing will top this...and then WHAM...these idiots do something else that is completely startling...

The bail-outs don’t seem like that big of a deal anymore...they have done as much damage in 2.5 years as the Progressives had achieved in the previous 100.

And nothing will be done about these idiots in the future...

We do have to pay the piper for what the past admin have done.

And we will have a chance to correct the direction of our republic. But we will see.

I also think that if ;laws were broken we should try all of them no matter how far back we go.
