Falkland Islands– Was the US going to betray the UK?

I was a History major and Political Science minor.. I remember when Argentina reclaimed the Falklands as well as how the British were outraged and sent a task force to retake the Islands for the UK. I have never heard a word about these nuggets that came out today in The Daily Mail (A UK Paper).

Stunned to be honest that The US ever considered this. I was under the impression that Reagan and Thatcher were very good friends.
