And no...I don't really respect Mitt Romney. And John Dowd took a bit of a different thought to the Mattis Letter.
Mr. Dowd, who was not present at the time as far as I know, call the people moved from the square terrorists, something no other reputable commentator has called them, while people who were present including media on the left and right have said they were peacefully protesting.
Mr. Dowd will join a long list of people who will be seen as lying sycophants in service to the Liar-in-Chief, and who will be judged very harshly by history and all decent people. General Mattis, and the other generals who have spoken out recently, will continue to be judged as heroes.
