MERIDIAN — Opinions based on political agenda give pause

Dear Editor:

     I would like to respond to the editorial entitled “Seeing Al-Queda Behind Every Tree” by Dana Milbank.

    Osama Bin Laden is dead and a martyr to all of his Muslim brothers. His terrorist plan to kill all infidels (Americans) has exploded around the world. You may feel all warm and fuzzy, Mr. Milbank. I assure you that your head is in the sand.

     Have you ever met anyone in the United States military or civilian services? Do you know what an IED sounds like? Have you witnessed public executions?     Have you seen what happens when an Al-Queda straps a suicide bomb onto a small child for the “cause”? No? Too bad, Mr. Milbanks. I bet you would soil your pants. You have crossed the line.

    When I see opinions that are based on nothing but their political agenda, it gives me pause. Let’s take, for instance, Benghazi. As you wrote, it was a “menace;” sounds a lot like Hilary Clinton when asked under oath about why help was not sent to our Embassy, and she threw her hands in the air and said, “What difference does it make anyway?”

    Too bad that she, her boss, and even you, Mr. Milbank, couldn’t have been in Benghazi to truly understand what Al-Queda is capable of.

    The liberal press is so enamored with the President that they choose to spit on all of our warriors that bravely defend this country. And as for the conservatives, well, they have lost all of their fortitude and have turned into cowards. It is a pitiful state of affairs we are in.  

    Thanks to the garbage you spew Mr. Milbank, uninformed readers will trust your word. God help us!

    Glo Minor, Collinsville

New federal data show Mississippi received 179 unaccompanied children caught at the U.S. border this year. Gov. Phil Bryant wrote to President Barack Obama demanding the president pre-announce plans to send immigrants to Mississippi, saying Mississippi would block transports. Do you agree with Bryant?
