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

• Daily Telegraph
The US secretly agreed to give the Russians sensitive information on Britain’s nuclear deterrent to persuade them to sign a key treaty.

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.

THIS! is why our Government wants to shut down and punish WikiLeaks; it exposes the U.S. Government's treachery and betrayal of our allies.
