Honored to join President Biden on his first trip abroad as @POTUS. We are committed to the Transatlantic relationship and NATO Alliance. As democracies, we can demonstrate not only what we defend against but what we stand for. Our shared values are among our greatest strengths. https://t.co/rpNdrIrI0H

How could so many experts have concluded that Syring wouldn’t hurt them when his victims felt with such a visceral certainty that he would?
Part of it, at least for some people involved in the case, was that Syring just didn’t seem the type—white, older, someone who’d spent decades in a cautious bureaucracy. It didn’t make sense that a man with so much to lose would operate at such a high personal cost. Bristol had initially hedged his investigation for this reason, believing that a midlevel State Department employee probably wouldn’t also be a racist troll. (He says he would never make that assumption now.)
Zogby will be 78 when Syring gets out of prison, if he serves his full sentence, and 81 when his probation ends. If Syring reappears in Zogby’s life at that point, it will mark 20 years and counting that his obsession has persisted—20 years in which Zogby has never fully understood what Syring might be capable of doing to him. “I didn’t know, I never knew,” he told me recently. “And I still don’t know.”
A diplomat harassed the employees of a think tank for more than a decade.
In hundreds of emails and voicemails, he called them “Arab American terrorist murderers” and ranted about how they should be cleansed. Yet there was almost nothing they could do. https://t.co/8acFscArXE
