Unanticipated Benefit of US Government Shutdown

by | Oct 4, 2013

Something to cheer about the US governnent’s ongoing budget battle! US Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul wrote today on Twitter:

This means the hyperactive US Ambassador, whose every pronoumcement is a diplomatic disaster, who continues his desperate attempts to put his long and impressive “regime change” credentials to work in Russia, will at least for the time being actually be doing something to help rather than harm US/Russian bilaterial relations: keep quiet.

So here’s one of the of the unintended positive consequences of the US government shutdown: radio silence from Meddlesome McFaul.

UPDATE: More good news from McFaul:
