British Government Criticizes U.S. Law Enforcement For Leaking Information To The Press On Manchester Arena Bombing Culprit And His Terror Cell

May 26. 2017

British Home Secretary Amber Rudd

British Home Secretary, Amber Rudd, has roundly criticized U.S. law enforcement, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), for leaking items to the American press on the Manchester Arena bombing that took place this week in England, at an Ariana Grande concert. The FBI and CIA leaked the identity of the bomber, Salman Abedi, his movements prior to the bombing, his associates and information about his family and the whole clan's ties to terrorist groups ISIS and Al Qaeda.

The British government had shared this information with their American counterparts in confidence. The leak damaged the criminal investigation, taking away "the element of surprise" as the British government closed in on Abedi's terror cell in Manchester. Several people were arrested. However, the bomb maker and others fled when the U.S. government disclosed Salman Abedi's name as the culprit, indicating the British government knew who was responsible and is criminally investigating him and his associates over the deadly terror incident.

It's ironic, the FBI and CIA are always complaining about people like Julian Assange and his whistleblower website, Wikileaks, stating the site leaks top secret documents and in doing so, compromises national security and state secrets. However, that's exactly what the FBI and CIA has done to the British government, regarding disclosing to the press a significant amount of information on the Manchester Arena terrorist bombing, while the investigation has been transpiring.

U.S. President Donald Trump has disavowed the leak and apologized to the British government, as has U.S. Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, who has flown to Britain in an effort to smooth over things. Trump has vowed to get to the bottom of who is responsible for the leak within U.S. law enforcement.


Manchester attack: Home Secretary Amber Rudd criticises United States over leaking of British intelligence

A day ago - Home Secretary Amber Rudd has warned the United States over leaking after details of the Manchester attack appeared to come from American sources. Ms Rudd said the leaking of information had been “irritating” after a number of details appeared in the US media, including NBC and CBS, before the police had released information.

The death toll, the attack being an apparent suicide bombing, and the name of the attacker were all released from American news outlets. Ms Rudd told BBC Radio 4's Today programme that US leaks may be working against the police. Manchester attack: Theresa May raises terror threat rating to 'critical' She said: “British police have been very clear that they want to control the flow of information in order to protect operational integrity, the element of surprise.

“So it is irritating if it gets released from other sources and I have been very clear with our friends that that should not happen again."

Asked if the Americans had compromised the investigation, she added: "I wouldn't go that far but I can say that they are perfectly clear about the situation and that it shouldn't happen again." The Home Secretary has also confirmed that Manchester suicide bomber Salman Abedi was known to the intelligence services "up to a point".


'I'll hunt down and prosecute the Manchester bomb secrets leaker': Trump vows to punish US source who gave out forensic photos and details to the media

Published: 11:08 EDT, 25 May 2017 | Updated: 18:19 EDT, 25 May 2017 - President Trump is vowing to 'get to the bottom' of leaks about the Manchester bombing probe, ordering an investigation into whoever gave out the sensitive information. Calling leaks a 'grave threat' to national security, Trump ordered the Justice Department to conduct a probe of the matter – which caused a strain with Great Britain, even as U.K. authorities were trying to hunt down accomplices for the attack.

The White House issued a tough statement after British Prime Minister Theresa May complained about the disclosure to the president at a NATO meeting. 'The alleged leaks coming out of government agencies are deeply troubling,' Trump said. The White House statement notably didn't confine itself to the disclosure of terror-related information from a key ally, but also mentioned leaks generally – something that have been the bane of Trump's young presidency.
