Republican presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney speaks at a campaign rally at the Bowling Green Community Center July 18, 2012 in Bowling Green, Ohio.

Mitt Romney made yet another gaffe on Thursday when he admitted to reporters that he had met with MI6 head Sir John Sawers. The meeting with the chief of Britain’s intelligence agency was not on Romney’s public schedule, but then he told the press, “I appreciated the insights and perspectives of the leaders of the government here and opposition here as well as the head of MI6 as we discussed Syria and the hope for a more peaceful future for that country.” The Foreign and Commonwealth Office later commented, “Sir John Sawers meets many people, but we don’t give a running commentary on any of these private meetings.”
