Morning must-read: Foreign Service Officer John Matel slaps the whiners and weenies at the State Department who don’t want to go to Iraq:

Calling Iraq a death sentence is just way over the top. I volunteered to come here aware of the risks but confident that I will come safely home, as do the vast majority of soldiers and Marines, who have a lot riskier jobs than we FSOs do…

…This sound and fury at Foggy Bottom truly signifies nothing. Get over it! I do not think many Americans feel sorry for us and it is embarrassing for people with our privileges to paint ourselves as victims.

If we had more John Matels in the State Department, Foggy Bottom wouldn’t be the bureaucratic basket case that it is. Give this man a promotion.
