Here’s a Cute One…

From the UK Telegraph:

The [cables] describe how officials from the Swedish Ministry of Justice and Ministry of Foreign Affairs had a “strong degree of satisfaction with current informal information sharing arrangements” with the American government. Making the arrangement formal would result in the need for it to be disclosed to Parliament, they said…

The cable claimed that the “current Swedish political climate makes any formal terrorist screening information agreement highly difficult”. Swedish citizens are said to place high value on the country’s neutrality.

So if your citizens aren’t okay with what you’re doing, just circumvent Western liberalism’s most treasured mechanisms of democratic accountability.  What do they know, right? Gotta be willing to break a few eggs when we face the unprecedented risk of a few hundred fatalities per decade…
