Finally, after more submissions than I can remember, I’ve had a LTE published in the Minneapolis Star Tribune!
I wish I could say it was my best letter (it’s not, imo) but it is also the only one to be published, so I’m really at a loss as to what to call it.
Read the letter below.
How is it that statements like those made by Karl Rove (“Liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers”) and Scott McClellan (“[Rove] was talking about the different philosophies and our different approaches when it comes to winning the war on terrorism”) can be made without being questioned in the media?
When Sen. Dick Durbin points out the savagery of prisoner abuse, he’s accused of hating our troops! Never mind that his comments were about policy, not soldiers.
Please tell me how Rove and McClellan can make remarks like this without being forced to back them up.
Scott Graupner, Wabasha MN
I put my real name because if you check the link you’ll see it anyway. Not sure why others on here avoid doing that.
