Many domestic news outlets, including USA Today, New York Times and CNN, as well as several foreign outlets have announced that President Trump has expelled 60 Russian diplomats, including 12 intelligence operatives. Several NATO allies have followed suit.
US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, said:
“Today, the United States began the process of expelling 12 intelligence operatives from the Russian Mission to the United Nations who have abused their privilege of residence in the United States. After a review, we have determined that the 12 intelligence operatives engaged in espionage activities that are adverse to our national security.”
Joel Rosenberg posted analysis of these actions and suggested 5 additional things President Trump should do, regarding Russia. You will find those suggestions here. (Not to say we should always agree with Rosenberg, but he expresses interesting thoughts regarding the situation.)
BTW – if you are reading Rosenberg’s newest novel, The Kremlin Conspiracy, these actions are a welcome course of action compared to what is depicted in the book! Let’s pray that our president and his security team act more aggressively than the president depicted in that novel. Our leaders need wisdom…let’s ask of God!
But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him.
