Letter: Filled with distortions
Re “Liberals disgrace America” (Duene Cowan, Monitor letter, Oct. 12):
Anyone can have his own opinions, but this letter was filled with distortions. President and Michelle Obama and Jill Biden have been very involved in the plight of wounded veterans and their families. The Republican government shutdown is what caused the closing of the veterans’ memorials. The George W. Bush, Donald Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney chicken hawks had the bodies of our fallen troops return in the middle of the night in a cargo plane without even flags draping them and no family or honor guard meeting them. One of Obama’s first priorities was to change this policy and have our fallen heroes return home in honor.
Nothing in that letter was fact, and I don’t think it should have been printed.
