A senior US official has told the BBC Washington decided not to tell London ahead of time about a deal to resettle four Guantanamo detainees in Bermuda. A diplomatic row blew up over Bermuda's decision to accept the four Chinese Muslim Uighurs on a US request.It's becoming apparent that the Obama administration is going out of its way to tear down any appearance of a 'special relationship' between the UK and US. The question is whether this is happenstance, incompetence, or part of an orchestrated campaign to improve America's overseas reputation with Muslims by dumping on our main partner in Iraq? Since Obama has been called by some the smartest president ever it must be the latter.
Bermuda is a British overseas territory but the US official said Washington had acted secretly to ensure success.
