Dear Public Opinion,Why is it that the Bush Administration refuses to acknowledge that the situation in Iraq is not salvageable and refuses to pull our troops out of Iraq? Could it be that it is only due to President Bush's personal stubbornness to change or refusal to admit he was wrong? I feel there is a more sinister reason.Our foreign policy is being manipulated by Saudi Arabia. King Abdullah told V. P. Cheney last week during his quick visit to Saudi Arabia that if the U. S. withdraws it's forces from Iraq that they (the Saudis) might provide financial backing to the Iraqi Sunnis.Access to oil is the key -- if the Saudis feel betrayed by the U. S., they could possibly have a 'snit' and cut off our oil supply. George Bush wouldn't be able to hold hands with the 'oil' prince any more!!The tragedy is that many more of our brave troops are dying. For what? It is sickening to think about what has taken place under this President's watch.

MY letter to Daily News

This was published last week in the Daily News.

In watching Tim Russert's "Meet the Press" interview with reporter Robert Novak, I was struck by Novak's evasive answers.
He verbally 'bobbed & weaved' to avoid admitting the obvious conclusion that he was responsible for the disclosure of Valerie Plame's CIA connection. Vice President Cheney, Karl Rove, and others used him in a devious, vindictive manner to punish her husband.
They are sneaky cowards who used a reporter to gain their ends. This doesn't excuse Mr. Novak who, as a veteren reporter, should know better. He should also be held accountable for his actions.
