US objects to UK court disclosure

Guantanamo Bay prisonThe White House and U.S. intelligence community are grousing about a British court’s decision that forced the UK to disclose classified U.S. intelligence about an ex-Gitmo detainee released to the Brits.  Thirty-year CIA veteran Joseph Wippl, director of the Center for International Relations, says we have no right to comment about another democratic nation’s legal system.

“Such comments cause needless resentment by partner countries. When the shoe has been on the other foot (Guantanamo), our response is ‘mind your own business.’”
