In our first security briefing upon arrival, Donna and I were told that we should use one of our secure rooms at the embassy if we ever needed to have a serious argument. And maybe that was the plan. I had wanted to say that the behavior of those Nashi activists was inconsistent with international norms. But in the heat of the moment, those words had not come to me.
