The most outrageous **’Obama is not up to the job’** story yet, By FAR

From the Daily Telegraph:

WikiLeaks cables: US agrees to tell Russia Britain’s nuclear secrets

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.9:25PM GMT 04 Feb 2011

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.

The fact that the Americans used British nuclear secrets as a bargaining chip also sheds new light on the so-called “special relationship”, which is shown often to be a one-sided affair by US diplomatic communications obtained by the WikiLeaks website.

Details of the behind-the-scenes talks are contained in more than 1,400 US embassy cables published to date by the Telegraph, including almost 800 sent from the London Embassy, which are published online today. The documents also show that:

• America spied on Foreign Office ministers by gathering gossip on their private lives and professional relationships.


What is the vital piece of common sense utterly missing?

It would be far simpler to ask/answer what is "right" with this administration.

The answer: Zero

And it fits his nic . . .Pres. Zero

Can we call it treason yet?

That' damning.

Will a GOP congressman or senator address this on the floor and force this gross incompetency into the light of day here in the US? (It's already all over the news in Britain, putting one more nail in the coffin of the "special relationship")

It will be interesting to see how the British government responds to this publicly. I guess we won't know how they respond to it privately until the history books are written.
