Letters to the Editor

Label pages 'War and Occupation'

I see The Bee editorial board finally saw the light and said we should get out of Iraq ("It's time to bring the troops home," Sept. 16, Page B-6).

Let's start by putting the news from Iraq on a page that says "War and Occupation," because that is what it is -- not "War and Terrorism."

There were no terrorists in Iraq prior to our invasion; Saddam had no weapons of mass destruction; he didn't even have an air force. Most important, none of the 19 hijackers was from Iraq.

If this was the "liberal media," The Bee would have called it what it is from Day 1, an occupation.
