Obama Sells Out Britain to Sign Arms Treaty with Russia?

It's almost too hard to believe, even for Obama. But it appears that he sold out some of Britain's nuclear secrets to Russia in exchange for Russia's signing a treaty with him. How ridiculous.

Although the treaty was not supposed to have any impact on Britain, the leaked cables show that Russia used the talks to demand more information about the UK’s Trident missiles, which are manufactured and maintained in the US.

Washington lobbied London in 2009 for permission to supply Moscow with detailed data about the performance of UK missiles. The UK refused, but the US agreed to hand over the serial numbers of Trident missiles it transfers to Britain.

How's that new relationship working out for you, Britain?

The U.S. state department is disputing this. Of course, they could not possibly confirm it or they are done. Not sure where the truth lies at this point, but nothing surprises me with Obama anymore.
