Given the subject and circumstances, that is the sort of communication I would have expected. Nothing controversial.
Seems to me we are only getting confirmation of what we knew already in terms of peoples thoughts about others.
The US upset is simply the discomfort of the intrusion, rather than massive security leaks.
We would all be very angry if we thought GOB was listening in to our phone calls, but not because of secret/confidential content being revealed, but simply the intrusion.

The only tie between the ship and Belize is the Ashcroft owned IMMAARBE, which indescriminately registared this and other merchant marine vessels. IMMARBE is based in Belize City at Marina Towers.

In other words, in virago speak, welcome to Belize for ship registration, company formation and tourism. Will the last person leaving please turn out the lights.

As a flag of convenience with just 231 ships registered, Belize seriously lags behind Panama (6,379), Liberia (2,512), Malta (1,571), Marshall Islands (1,381), Antigua (1,219), Bahamas (1,170) and a few others.

actually a while ago, Belize did revoke the registration of a ship belonging to some environmental activists

so there you go, Belize do not offer flags of convenience indiscriminately, terrorists who hold abhorrent anti-whaling beliefs can and do get their ship registration revoked.

Ukrainian arms traffickers sending weapons to states sponsoring terrorism? well. they're the good guys right? i mean we've all seen LORD OF WAR right? Nick Cage kick ass.
