Letter: National abusers go unpunished

Osama bin Laden is dead and, as President Obama says, “Justice has been done.” Will we now turn our attention to these offenders: George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice, and Donald Rumsfeld? Don’t hold your breath.

America is No. 1 again, so we can ignore, if only for a day, the loss of jobs, collapse of infrastructure, unfair division of wealth, unjustified oil prices, and irrational hatred of taxes and our own government which financial terrorists have visited upon us. Will they be brought to justice?

Again, don’t hold your breath.

William Sterr
