Jerusalem Embassy Delayed (Again)

Given promises made publicly and prominently earlier by POTUS 45 to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, I was curious to know what he would actually do when faced with the expiration of the previous order. Today we have the answer – he followed the lead of his predecessors and signed the waiver as has been done every six months since the law was passed in October 1995 citing “national security”.

Temporary sanity prevails, at least on this one issue.

For a little more detail on this subject, see my December 1, 2016 post.
