Kuwait is not a "free-rider" in U.S.-led campaigns against terrorism and other threats, a senior Kuwaiti security official said Thursday, rejecting comments by President Barack Obama critical of U.S. allies.Sheikh Thamer al-Sabah, President of Kuwait's National Security Bureau, was referring to Obama's remarks to The Atlantic magazine last week in which he said some states in the Gulf and Europe were "free-riders" who called for U.S. action without getting involved themselves.Kuwait, which borders Iraq and Saudi Arabia and lies across the Gulf from Iran, is working to combat the threat of attacks by Sunni Islamist militants like Daesh (ISIS) on its own soil, Sheikh Thamer said, as well as Iranian-backed operatives.He said countries from the six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council had been compiling blacklists of suspected militants and shared them with Western allies.He said Tehran's nuclear deal with world powers had not diminished Kuwait's concerns over Iran.
