Regarding David Ignatius’s Nov. 6 op-ed, “Silent in the face of lies”:

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s refusal to support former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch against the slander of President Trump and his personal lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani is akin to abandoning your wounded troops on the battlefield. Has Pompeo forgotten the U.S. Military Academy mantra of duty, honor, country?
