Reader comment on item: [The American Muslim Council:] 'Mainstream' Muslims?

Submitted by William J. Sturm (United States), Jun 20, 2002 at 05:57

I have read all the responses..... E-mails will not do it.........Letters will not do it......
Wishing and hoping will not do it......

What will do it is the old fashioned telephone calls to your Congressmen/women registering your disgust. Yes, it's all about politics and votes.

We should be melting down the phone lines to our "elected representatives". I seriously doubt anyone will reach the President or get his attention. But, there are over 500 others out there who want to hold on to power. Rattle their cages and I can assure you this public official will not attend this conflab.

Also, I will comment on the 'kinder and gentler administration'........probably the President's aim too in this situation. Noble, but not very attractive. And, spies should be shot! No life sentences and no pensions for their widow (a soup line would be adequate compensation). Has this country gone completely mad?

"Blackhawk Down" comes to mind. They knew we were coming and they were loaded for bear! From debka.com the following was published on June 6, 2002:

"Many CIA and FBI officers are convinced that Ames and Hanssen betrayed the American battle plans and codes in Somalia; they also know the name of the enemy agent at UN..........."

Swiss cheese looks whole compared to our intelligence network. Finally, we did get another negative out of the Clinton Administration. He taught the enemy the fine art of refusing to answer any question posed to them. It worked for Clinton! And, it appears to be working for them too. Good students!
