Whether Perry was correct or not, he did not look good

Reader comment on item: Turkey Out of NATO: Other Voices

Unfortunately, Perry managed to make himself look uninformed and unsophisticated in his choice of words. He obviously does not speak political-eze (at least national level) very well. I agree that the Turkish govt is Islamist and is going to be a big problem, but diplomatic expressions are key to having everyone on the same page and calling them terrorists is too simplistic. Casting doubt by using such terms that appear to the average joe as exaggerated, do not help the cause. He did himself no good with that comment, at least without an intelligent elaboration.
