WikiLeaks: U.S. Spied on Gay British Official

As fallout from the WikiLeaks disclosure of U.S. diplomatic cables rolls throughout the international community, the documents indicate that Alan Duncan, the gay international development minister from Britain, was among the many foreign officials Americans spied on.

According to the Daily Mail, the U.S. inquired about Duncan, a Tory, when he was his party's prisons spokesman. He once shared a flat in London with William Hague, the foreign secretary who this year admitted sharing a hotel room with his younger male aide but denied any impropriety.

"On January 22 - four months before Tories formed a coalition with the LibDems - a cable about Mr Duncan was signed off by Elissa Pitterle, head of intelligence operations at the State Department," reports the Daily Mail.

"The cable called for further intelligence on 'Duncan's relationship with Conservative party leader David Cameron and William Hague', and asked: 'What role would Duncan play if the Conservatives form a government? What are Duncan's political ambitions?'"

WikiLeaks released more than 250,000 cables from over 250 American embassies around the world in a move that the U.S. government has condemned as a danger to American lives.
