CNN’s Wolf Blitzer says this photo of a bunch of National Guard troops on a picturesque street near the Capitol reminds him or “the war zones [he] saw in Baghdad or Mosul of Falluja”:
I spotted these National Guard troops at a normal Washington street corner not even near the Capitol. So many streets have been closed. It reminds me of the war zones I saw in Baghdad or Mosul or Falluja. So sad. pic.twitter.com/la1Ixiva0D

He really is this clueless:
Sorry but those were war torn and destroyed cities and towns that saw tens of thousands of deaths.. Nothing in this pic reminds me any of that.. Nor it should anyone. https://t.co/l2lZoKssHe
