"Not A Bluff": White House Might Pull US Military & Intelligence From UK Over China's

• Zero Hedge - Tyler Durden

The Telegraph Monday evening broke the explosive story that the White House is currently investigating the potential for US spy planes, as well as intelligence networks and officials who ware currently operational in the UK to be compromised by Huawei's presence in Britain.

The report anonymously quotes half a dozen current US and UK officials saying the Trump administration's review is active and could have huge ramifications for the "special relationship" between the historic long-term allies.

Of top concern is said to be state of the art reconnaissance aircraft based in Britain, particularly the RC-135 spy planes, capable of sweeping up vast intelligence from battlefields. The sophisticated aircraft are thought to be especially vulnerable after Prime Minister Boris Johnson previously gave the formal go-ahead for Huawei to help build Britain's 5G network.
