Obama Intentionally Did Not Tell Britain About Uighur Transfer to Bermuda

The Obama administration intentionally did not tell Britain about the Uighur transfer from Guantanamo Bay to Bermuda. That goes a step beyond some how 'forgetting' to ask our ally if they would mind us sending trained terrorists to land they are responsible to protect. We basically snuck them in.

"Pressed on whether the US had told the British government, an unnamed state department official was quoted as saying: "We did talk to them before the Uighurs got on the plane."

Now a senior US official has told the BBC it was a deliberate decision not to consult London on the resettlement, after other countries came under pressure from China not to accept the Uighurs.
The official said they expected London to be upset but added he felt the deal was made on solid ground, in direct talks with the Bermuda government, who accepted the men as part of guest worker programme.
