Dead Men Working has a comment on the Washington Times editorial that Consul-at-Arms commented on. DMW says:
The Foreign Service is not the military. And comparisons to the military are ill-informed.
It is unfortunate that our leadership has not stepped up to clarify that fact.
It is appalling when the second largest newspaper in our nation's capitol is incapable of telling the difference.
DMW explains in the piece why such comparisons are ill-informed. You can read his entire piece here.
