The British government has asked the New York Times to destroy copies of documents leaked by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden related to the operations of the U.S. spy agency and its British partner, Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), people familiar with the matter said.
The British request, made to Times executive editor Jill Abramson by a senior official at the British Embassy in Washington D.C., was greeted by Abramson with silence, according to the sources. British officials indicated they intended to follow up on their request later with the Times, but never did, one of the sources said.

Maybe ill call them and ask for a copy.
The NY Times? That much information? So the word is probably out on likely wheeling and dealing between the UK and Shiite and Sunni Muslim nations against Israel. That’s interesting.
Remember when stories like this came from places like Iran and China?
Wait. The Brits ARE like Iran and China. Never mind.
Isn’t this the same country that prosecuted people for phone hacking ..... I wonder how many GCHQ people will be identified and prosecuted .... I seem to remember many speeches of outrage at the rape of privacy of personal communications.
Aha - the real reason the Brits won’t stand beside (or slightly behind to keep from exposing their backs) ZeroBama in attacking Syria...
