The United States government is concerned about the safety of those mentioned by the online whistleblower WikiLeaks in the 394 secret U.S. documents the site is scheduled to release regarding The Bahamas.
Erica Thibault, public affairs officer at the U.S. Embassy in The Bahamas, confirmed yesterday that the embassy spoke to the Bahamian government about the issue.
“And we are confident that the U.S.-Bahamas relationship will withstand this challenge,” she said.
“Our common commitment to democracy, the rule of law, shared strategic interests and geographic proximity make The Bahamas one of our closest partners in the Western Hemisphere and we expect that our strong and deep ties will continue to grow.”"
