Graffy is in Iceland right now. (“DCM” means “Deputy Chief of Mission,” an embassy’s number-two official, right below the Ambassador.) I wonder what Matt Armstrong, chief chronicler of State Dept. communications bloopers, makes of the Foggy Bottum Twitter-embrace.
Megan Carpentier points out that Department spokesman Sean McCormack is also on Twitter. His last Tweet recommends a fatuous Robert Kaplan op-ed contending that the Muslim world is one undistinguishable agglutination of grievance.
