    How sad a commentary it is for the commnder in chief to have those he commands viewed as "Enemy territory"...
    There is a difference between respect for office, and agreeing with the message or messenger. Being in the military does not make you apolitical.

    Nor does it make you the "enemy camp"
    You should try to remember, ideas are conveyed by researching information, vetting sources, and confirming said information. Not by regurgitating talking points given to you by your "news" station.

    So Chris Matthews saying that West Point was the ‘enemy camp’ was an attack against the cadets and faculty?

    That would be a huge stretch. I hope even the good Rev is not trying to suggest such.

    I think it was fairly obvious what Matthews was saying...however....still a pretty stupid thing to say.

    I think it speaks more to the mindset of Mr. Mathews.
