To be fair, unless there is a known direct threat against a different country, there is not any reason to share anything until the investigation is
wrapped up (other that in the interest of absolute transparency, which we know neither government involved in this bickering is a fan of).
It's the UK's fault, not the US' fault, that the information got out--you can't share information with a government that is in the midst of already
leaking like a sieve and get outraged when your information gets leaked.
Sorry, UK, but you're the one's with egg on your face, here. But in the grand scheme of things, I see nothing wrong with informing the public about
the name of an attacker or other information concerning a terrorist bombing--withholding information would be the worse thing to do, IMO.
I think that the UK is upset because, once again, we have a Muslim extremist committing atrocious, murderous acts in (apparently) the name of Islam,
and the UK is not real keen on dealing with that reality head on in the media.
I think that they miss Obama's administration, who probably would have colluded with the UK and came up with some story about an internet video making
this guy go crazy or something.
