U.S. Strategy to Ensure British Cooperation

Jim said: aaaand my libido has disappeared foreverRecently released British security archives have finally revealed the true reason Maggie Thatcher got real tight with the U.S.: we tortured and then blackmailed her into cooperation. In 1977, when she was still the leader of the minority party, Maggie and her husband went to Houston for her to give a speech. While at the hotel, she and her husband Denis found themselves trapped (yes, together) in the hotel bathroom. They were eventually released by “hotel staff.” The CIA used to be so much fun!
