Re “Were those 21 Egyptians on a ‘crusade’?” and “Obama won’t speak out against terrorists?” (Letters, Feb. 24): I found these letters particularly offensive. I have read many such right-wing screeds, and I have also read comments from the other side. I think The Bee tries to be as unbiased as you can.
These individuals don’t know history (thank you for correcting them). All they know is their hatred of the president. To them, this man can do nothing right. When he points out that many atrocities have been committed by Christians (historical fact), they call him a Muslim sympathizer. He is not. He is simply trying to deal with an impossible situation without making it worse.
They need only remember a few years back to see what a stupid president can do. He got us into two unnecessary wars (with outright lies), got thousands of our people killed and many thousands more damaged for life, not to mention the hundreds of thousands of Iraqis killed and millions displaced. His war cost us trillions and then left us on the brink of a depression.
This president is smart and rational in his approach to these threats. He has kept us out of the problems the previous administration caused.
