Letter to the Editor: Describing 9/11


Dear Letter to the Editor:

Ellie Catherine Hudd is correct. ( Please Don’t Defend the Indefensible).

On December 7, 1941 Japanese killers murdered 2300 Americans at Pearl Harbor. If President Franklin Delano Roosevelt had described the intentional slaughter of 2300 Americans when he stood before the U.S. Congress on December 8, 1941 as a day ” some people did something”, he and it would be viewed by history as ludicrous and pathetic. Of course as a patriotic American FDR described December 7, 1941 as ” a day that will live in infamy”.

September 11, 2001 is no different. On that day Koranic killers murdered 3000 people in New York City, Washington, D.C. and Pennsylvania. Obviously it too was a day that will live in infamy. Anyone who would describe a day when 3000 people were intentionally slaughtered in the United States as a day when “some people did something”  is as ludicrous and pathetic as the words themselves.
