Another letter they won't print

Dear New York Times,

The N.Y. Times reported today from Afghanistan that U.S. forces called an air strike on a compound after spotting two men with rifles entering the compound. Are two bombs, two 2000 pound bombs necessary to bring down two men, even two men with rifles? My guess would be hardly but in this case the causality count was nine including five women and two children. It was not reported if the women and children had rifles. When this administration is tried for war crimes every taxpayer in the United States should be included in the indictment. This administration has not been able to bring a suspected criminal to justice but we have changed the makeup of thousands of families. For allowing this tragic absurdity in Afghanistan and Iraq to continue we are all guilty.
