Michelle Young – Jan 16, 2014
Khobragade’s arrest has plucked at deep sensitivity over how India is portrayed, and the news media and the public have searched for examples of U.S. diplomats’ misbehaving. This has led to headlines and a dedicated website in recent days listing some of the Facebook posts of Wayne and Alicia Muller May, the U.S. diplomats who were expelled from India over the weekend in retaliation for the U.S. insistence that Khobragade leave the country after she refused to settle the charges against her in exchange for a modest fine.
I have to comment on this and say I’m beyond simply glad that the Mays were expelled from India, and good for India for the expulsions! I would have encouraged India to do so even without the Khobragade situation. I’m horrified that they were even hired for their respective jobs!
