President Donald Trump says the United States should admit more immigrants from countries like Norway. We should look to Norway, but not for immigrants. We should look to Norway for lessons in how to resist Russian efforts to subvert our democracy.
Norway is fighting Russia far better than Trump.
When Trump’s remarks were reported last week, I was in Oslo representing the OSS Society at an event sponsored by the Gunnar Sonsteby Foundation. Sonsteby is Norway’s most decorated World War II hero and a leader of the Norwegian resistance during World War II. The OSS, or Office of Strategic Services, was the World War II predecessor to the CIA, the military’s U.S. Special Operations Command, or SOCOM, and the State Department’s Bureau of Intelligence and Research. America’s OSS supported the Norwegian resistance.
