WASHINGTON SPECTATOR: "Military Veterans, the Republican Party, and January 6--a New Chapter in the Story"

From George Black's 6-21-21 WASHINGTON SPECTATOR article entitled "Military Veterans, the Republican Party, and January 6—a New Chapter in the Story":

But if the commission had been limited to the events of January 6, it would have missed much of the point. The biggest risk here is not that we fail to understand what happened in the past and breathe a sigh of relief that American democracy dodged a bullet.
