Letter to the Editor

Writer Says Troops Overlooked Due to Scandals

web posted May 20, 2013

Dear Editor:
There are so many editorials that continue to lambaste this administration about the same three controversies; the embassy attack, the IRS, and The U.S. DOJ about phone records.

What I don’t understand is the conservatives’ continuing to put more pressure on this administration about these three events and letting The U.S. Troops go unmentioned !  Perhaps these editorial writers are saying, “Well the troops will be home next year, so let us argue about scandals !”  It has been brought to my attention that the four deaths at the embassy can not be compared to the troops’ deaths in combat.  To this I say, “Life is life regardless of how or where these deaths occurred !”

I am not “patting myself on my back,” but if millions more were like me and continued the fight against the wars, perhaps the troops would be home already ! We, as caring humans, should be calling, writing, e-mailing, and shouting out to bring the troops home ! It is well past time for this to happen.
