Syria's Dirty Tricks

In today’s Wall Street Journal, Jay Solomon and Nour Malas report on the Syrian regime’s dirty work in the United States, spying on and intimidating dissidents. (Indeed, Syria has been engaged in subterfuge for the last few months.) Sometimes Bahar al-Assad’s henchmen made good on their threats.
The story reports that the FBI is investigating the Syrian ambassador to Washington, Imad Moustapha. The White House should throw Damascus’s envoy out of the United States. There is no possible justification for permitting a foreign diplomat to plot against U.S. citizens, residents, and allies on American soil.
