Not deserved

To the Editor:

Mr. President (part 2), on Sept. 11 of this year, on your watch, an ambassador and three of his staff were assassinated. Congratulations to the secretary of state and you for your excellent foreign policy. Mr. President, what was on your mind as the anniversary of Sept. 11 grew near: golf or fundraising for the election?

The ambassador’s diary indicated that the ambassador feared for his life.

The countries of the Middle East are rioting with hate for America, burning American flags in your effigy. Mr. President, all this and it’s you apologizing.

Mr. President, when it comes to foreign policy, you do not deserve a second term.

George Gow
