OLYMPICS

The White House confirmed Monday that it would not be sending any U.S. dignitaries to attend the Winter Olympics in Beijing. Instead, the U.S. will stage a diplomatic boycott of the upcoming Winter Olympics in Beijing to protest Chinese human rights abuses. White House press secretary Jen Psaki says U.S. athletes will continue to compete and will “have our full support,” but added, “U.S. political officials will not be contributing to the fanfare of the games.”
