To the editor:
This letter is in regards to Mr. Moskow’s letter of Dec. 23. Personally, I would like to believe neither President Bush nor Obama intentionally lied to the American public. Upon further review each probably should have delayed in implementing their plans until much additional information was available. But to compare the massive loss of life and property to many people in Iraq as well as Americans to a few thousand people temporarily losing their health insurance is outrageous.
The problem with the health insurance is regrettable but can be rectified. The problem in Iraq only worsens with the subsequent post-war sectarian violence, instability and the rise of al-Qaida, which did not exist before the war. People in Iraq continue to suffer and die due to this misguided venture.
The outrage you demand, Mr. Moskow is how arrogant you are to begin to compare these two events. I am outraged you demand Mr. Obama be prosecuted and forced to resign. I don’t recall you demanding Mr. Bush be treated in such fashion and how could Americans trust him as commander in chief considering how many Americans lost their lives. I am outraged people assume leaders lie because mistakes are made. Unfortunately some errors in judgment have severe consequences and are hard rectify, whereas some can be resolved given enough time.
