WASHINGTON - U.S. Ambassador to Panama John Feeley, a career diplomat and former Marine Corps helicopter pilot, has resigned, telling the State Department he no longer feels able to serve President Donald Trump.

"As a junior foreign service officer, I signed an oath to serve faithfully the president and his administration in an apolitical fashion, even when I might not agree with certain policies," Feeley said, according to an excerpt of his resignation letter read to Reuters on Friday.

"My instructors made clear that if I believed I could not do that, I would be honor bound to resign. That time has come."

What a great loss.....

Quote
Feeley will be departing the State Department after nearly 30 years of service. He was nominated to the ambassadorship by President Barack Obama in July 2015 and was sworn in to the post on January 15, 2016. Prior to assuming his current position, Feeley served as principal deputy assistant secretary for Western Hemisphere affairs from 2012 to 2015. From 2009 to 2012, Feeley was stationed in Mexico, where he worked as deputy chief of mission and chargé d’affaires at the American embassy in Mexico City.

Feeley has also been outspoken on LGBTQ rights and in 2014 addressed the difficulties LGBTQ advocates face in South America.

When you decide to retire and you're a liberal, why wouldn't you take a cheap shot at the Republican President, whoever it is. And telling isn't it that he had no problem with the previous resident denigrating America and selling out Americans?

Apparently there are more countries vying for the coveted "Shithole Award?"  They're trying to muscle in on Mexico's action.
I will NOT comply.

We do not want an LGBT ambassador, some Panamanians say.

"U.S. Ambassador to Panama John Feeley" first appointed by Obama, made LGBT issues top priority.

Just timed his exit, for maximum newsworthiness.

Thank you for your service.
Please don't destroy records and erase the computers before you leave.

Good move by Mr. Feeley.
Gives Mr. Trump the opportunity to appoint someone more in tune with his goals.

Don't disparage this guy for leaving, we should congratulate him.
Why can't we get more democrat-communists to follow?
