Letter to the Editor
Vice President Dick Cheney is trying to sell the reason for the Iraq war based on 9-11. Cheney says, “Remember what we saw on the morning of 9/11. And knowing the nature of these enemies, we have as clear a responsibility as could ever fall to government,”
The problem with this is that Iraq and Saddam had nothing to do with 9-11. Bin Laden – who is responsible – resides in Pakistan – who is our “ally” and is funded by Saudi Arabia – who is also our “ally”. It seems to me that in order to protect the people of America from terrorism the Bush administration should first correctly identify who the enemy is.
Bush and Cheney are caught in a perpetual loop as the have to continue to try to explain why we went to war with Iraq – why we are still there – and what we are currently doing there – and how we are going to get out. This game has no end.
