Everyone in the United States would read THIS LETTER.
I stopped my subscription to the NY Times because they will print the most one-sided editorials -- but rarely do they present both points of view on a given subject. As a example, this type of letter (from a soldier in Iraq) would not get any coverage -- but a Maureen Dowd sarcastic piece, telling us how we are morally bankrupt, will. Or, this past Sunday, a NY Times Magazine puff piece on a a radical Islamist who was denied a visa. The NY Times focused on this poor soul being denied a visa. But, here is WHY he was denied a visa -- (which you wont read in the pages of the NY Times.)
The NY Time has become a joke, plain and simple.
(Back to the letter)
The letter was written by SGT. Eddie Jeffers, serving in Ramadi.
Here is a excerpt:
"It is absolutely sickening to me to think our country has come to this. Why are we so obsessed with the bad news? Why will people stop at nothing to be against this war, no matter how much evidence of the good we've done is thrown in their face? When is the last time CNN or MSNBC or CBS reported the opening of schools and hospitals in Iraq? Or the leaders of terror cells being detained or killed? It's all happening, but people will not let up their hatred of President Bush. They will ignore the good news, because it just might show people that Bush was right."
I encourage you to read the letter, and see if you can understand his viewpoint.
Hats off to Sgt Jeffers. His letter to the american people is HERE.
