Politicizing won't be forgotten
To the editor:
I am deeply offended and outraged over the apparent rift in the commotion caused by alleged prison abuse and the gruesome beheading of one of our own citizens.
While there seems to be no shortage of hot air being expended on Capitol Hill for the well-being of the terrorists with American blood on their hands, there is little outrage by the same for the death of Nick Berg.
I am sickened by the politicizing of these photos and will not forget come election time that some wept and wrung their hands for the enemy while turning their heads for one of our own. This produces in me a far greater humiliation than any of the prison photos ever could.
