Letter to the Editor: President’s policies are endangering our country

May 12, 2009

A letter to the editor printed in The News Journal, 5/12/2009:

President’s policies are endangering the country

After a succession of public apologies regarding America’s “alleged” offenses throughout history — offered to dictators, despots and assorted leaders of two-bit fiefdoms — America’s community-organizer-in-chief has turned his attention in a more dangerous direction.

He is systematically handcuffing our country’s intelligence operatives and exposing America to another deadly attack.

Here are a few examples of the president’s priorities, all of them paybacks to radicals and America haters that contributed heavily to his campaign:

•Close Guantanamo prison, a perfectly good lock-up outside the continental U.S., so he can bring dangerous terrorists and murderers inside our country.

•Publicize top-secret information, so our enemies can learn how we operate and prepare to counter our information extraction efforts, which are now basically nonexistent.

•Release interrogation photographs, despite the fact these snapshot moments, without background explanation and context, will be misinterpreted.

In his first 100 days, the guy who never operated even a lemonade stand has been able to make Jimmy Carter look like Charles Bronson.

Of course, slightly less than half the American electorate knew that last November.

Now, unfortunately, our enemies around the world do, too.

Ed Okonowicz, Elkton, Md.
