There was an amazing exchange today at the State Department press briefing when the press secretary refused to say that Jerusalem is the capital of the state of Israel.

At least Gump is honest enough to know he's not bright.
In the security reorganization following 9-11 Bush could have done something, but he just didn't see or understand the problem, and let a crisis go to waste.

“Arabists”, “commies” and queers have predominated at Foggy Bottom for generations.
