A quest for reason and accuracy in letters to the editor, guest editorials and other issues of interest to the citizens of Western Nevada County.

Apology is owed, writes Peter Arnold in November 24, 2004 Letters to the Editor.
Hey [writer of the letter to the editor, "Shove your apology," Nov. 17], you say, " If anyone needs to apologize, it better be Iraq . . . Did you bomb the World Trade Center?" Sounds as if you believe Iraq did. If so, in the face of all the evidence to the contrary (read the 9/11 Report, authored by a nonpartisan commission) how can you be so totally blind to the truth?
Well, the 9/11 Report did say they could not find any direct connection, between the 9/11 attack, but they did concede that Saddam was a terrorist. We are engaged in a war on terrorism. Saddam was a terrorist. He paid the families of Hammas bombers, he provided training facilities for terrorists, and he killed 300-400 thousand of his own people. He was waiting for the inspectors to leave to restart his WMD programs, including a nuclear bomb. A bomb he could give to terrorists training in Iraq. Do we wait for an Iraqi sponsored terror attack with a nuclear bomb before attacking? I think not. Sorry, no apology is necessary!

Tell me what you think
