No messing about...


A perfectly-timed tweet from the Pentagon on Wednesday has appeared to betray a small act of dissent against the Trump administration's controversial anti-refugee policy.
On the same day new US President Donald Trump announced extreme anti-immigration measures, the US Department of Defense's Twitter account highlighted a story about an Iraqi refugee who later became a US Marine.
It comes just a day before several State Department diplomats who had served under Obama's Democratic administration resigned from their posts, as well as the chief of the Border Patrol.
While the Iraqi/US Marine's story was a fine example of how refugees can contribute positively to society, the Pentagon insists the tweet's timing was simply a coincidence and was planned well in advance. ???
