Michael Flynn’s Departure is a Win for Peace | Progressive.org

by Jon Rainwater

In the non-stop stream of stranger-than-fiction moments that is the Trump Administration, one of the strangest moments was provided during the brief tenure of Michael Flynn. Shortly after he was named National Security Advisor, it came to light that Flynn had once claimed that Arabic signs on the U.S. border with Mexico were guiding “radicalized Muslims” into our country.

Even in an administration known for conjuring fake crowd sizes and fake massacres, there is something chilling about the top White House security aide peddling a story so unhinged. Flynn’s ready access to the President on matters of war and peace, combined with his Islamophobic and conspiratorial worldview, was a geopolitical accident waiting to happen.

The world is safer without Flynn anywhere near the Oval Office.
