Ecuador's government has ordered everyone in the US Embassy's military group, about 20 Defense Department employees, to leave the country by month's end.

The group was ordered to halt operations in Ecuador in a letter dated April 7, embassy spokesman Jeffrey Weinshenker said Thursday.

The Associated Press was alerted to the expulsions by a senior Ecuadorean official who refused to be identified by name due to the information's sensitive nature.

Now that we’ve gone communist, the communists still don’t like us.

Just what do we have to do to hang with the popular kids?

Ecuador has a long history of dissatisfaction with the US government and the CIA in particular.

This is a diplomatic row over a Wikileaks leaked State Department cable from 2009, that asked for the U.S. Visa of the Former Chief of State Police to be revoked. It alleged that he had been involved in corrupt activities and Human trafficking.

Ecuador expelled the US Ambassador over it.

Then, it really blew up after some of the Snowden accusations went public. Ecuador has accused the Obama Administration of “espionage” and “American imperialism”.

They were ordered expelled on April 7th. That it hasn’t made US Media until now, says a lot.

Probably a good reason for Nelson to not move to Ecuador, yes?
