Sudan: Bolton blames British for "erroneous" leak
"And it's even rarer when the two countries are considered close allies, like the United States and Britain.[Bolton upset? Poor little flower]
But US Ambassador John Bolton was obviously upset at published reports last week by several British journalists saying the United States was opposed to including the name of any Sudanese government official on a Security Council list of people who should be subject to UN sanctions for blocking peace and violating human rights in Darfur.
The reports, quoting unidentified diplomats, said Britain and other nations recommended a list of eight names, including government officials, but the U.S. wanted only a middle-ranking militiaman and one rebel.
Bolton said this wasn't true - and blamed the British for an erroneous leak."
