News Analysis: Trump’s Conspicuous Silence Leaves a Struggle Against Russia Without a Leader

The New York Times + 620 other

WASHINGTON — After more than a dozen Russians and three companies were indicted on Friday for interfering in the 2016 elections, President Trump’s first reaction was to claim personal vindication: “The Trump campaign did nothing wrong — no collusion!” he wrote on Twitter. He voiced no concern that a foreign power had been trying for nearly four years to upend American democracy, much less resolve to stop it from continuing to do so this year.

OBSERVATION POST 717, South Korea (AP) - The view into North Korea is spectacular from high above, a wide panorama stretching from craggy islands just off the coast to the mountains in the interior. There was a lot to be seen on this beautifully clear day, even if the North Koreans themselves were not in a mood to come out and be watched. We were on a tour of sorts, to a heavily fortified outpost in the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) on the coast of what is commonly known as the Sea of Japan, but called East Sea in Korea. It’s a place not usually open to outsiders, but during the Olympics jour…

MUNICH — With Britain’s exit from the European Union looming, Prime Minister Theresa May is a woman in a hurry.

Addressing a security conference here in Munich, the prime minister said Britain had an “unconditional” commitment to European security that would not change after the country’s departure from the bloc. Threats of cyberwarfare, terrorism and or…
