Direct anger at those trying to kill us

December 28, 2003

Dear Editor:

I was almost ready to apologize to Mr. Clooney for saying he called the president a "liar," but I decided to look up definitions in the dictionary. I found that the word "lie" means "to make a false statement with deliberate intent to deceive." I further found that the word "liar" means "one who lies." Therefore, I stand by my statement that he called the president of the United States and secretary of state liars.

I am aware that chemical weapons were used during the '80s against the Iranians and the Kurds. I am also aware that Saddam refused to account for all of those WMDs that his own records indicated they had. He refused to admit the UN Inspectors to certain areas. Therefore, it would seem logical that he still had them.

I agree with Mr. Clooney that we should all be more careful in reporting what someone has written. He says the only time he used the L-word was in reference to the indictment of President Clinton. I guess it all depends on what the meaning of the word "is" is.

I would like to remind all readers, of whatever political persuasion, that President Bush is not the enemy. Our enemies are those who attacked our country and killed over 3,000 of our citizens. We need to direct our anger at those responsible for this cowardly act and toward those who continue to try and kill us.
