Stand united


To the Editor:

I have heard of nothing but "the horrible treatment of the Iraqi prisoners by American troops." The media have all but accused President Bush of performing these acts himself.

I feel that our president is no more responsible for these acts than the mothers of the soldiers who did them. Allowing for the fact that there are thousands of miles between Iraq and the White House, I don't see how anyone could or would hold our president responsible. Those who do are narrow-minded nitwits.

It is my opinion that the people who committed those acts should be tried and convicted of the crime and punished to the extent of military law. If that means a death penalty then let it be so. Don't we have enough perverts to deal with as it is and it would show that some of us Americans do have morals.

I do, however, feel that the media are slanted and being corrupted by the side that will benefit by such erroneous and partisan reports.

Quite frankly, I'm sick of ABC, NBC, CBS, Ted Koppel, and all the rest of the "news media" taking cheap shots at the president. We are all supposed to "stand united" but all I hear these days is criticism.

I hope that there are more Americans who feel as I do and will speak up against those politicians who would use this situation to further their careers rather than show their commitment to this great nation.
