Letter to the Editor
Osama bin Laden won an important victory in the United States House of Representatives today as Congress voted to give up the basic freedoms that our forefathers fought and died for. And they have the guile to call it the “Patriot Act”. What it really should be called is the “Cowardice Act” because it shows that America is so week that we are willing to surrender our freedom over the loss of a mere 3000 lives and 2 buildings. Why did hundreds of thousands of soldiers fight and die for just to have Congress vote our freedom away. Every time we give up our freedom the enemies of freedom win. Congress should vote against what bin Laden wants – not with him.
