Dilemmas revealed in US-UK relationship


news.bbc.co.uk

At the heart of the Intelligence and Security Committee's report into rendition is the story of the UK's intense but occasionally difficult relationship with the US when it comes to intelligence sharing and counter-terrorism since 9/11.

An interesting article which I think deserves a bit of discussion, in particular the differences between how the two countries handle the subject matter, and the slight tinge of contempt the US intelligence services seem to have with regard to their British counterparts.

Certain aspects of the US gubment have contempt for anything other than empathic "yes men".

I think this write up is a wash. It paints a picture of a "surprised" UK towards what the US was doing. As if the MI5 and others were busy doing humanitarian work while the evil US Intel. agencies were pulling off toe nails. Poor poor MI5, without information and without the power to do anything. Pardon me while I pull out a tissue.

I don't buy it.

The US tries the same type of propaganda : "Oh we were just doing the right and just thing, we had no idea people were getting tortured in those Iraqi prisons, we are mere victims of circumstance. We didn't have the knowledge or power to stop such terrible acts ! Woe is me !"

I agree, in the article it also states how the UK realized the US would do anything for national security...like the UK intelligence agencies wouldn't?
