Ken Anderson concluded his Sept. 19 letter, “A bad turn doesn’t deserve another,” with what he intended as hypothetical questions:
“But what would happen if an American leader did the same thing, retaliating against a group of people in the Middle East and harming those who were not connected to the original group of attackers on our embassies? Does one immoral, unethical and illegal act deserve like behavior?”
I submit that the people of Iraq would not consider those questions to be hypothetical. In fact, I would say that we (or, rather, our embassy and military personnel) are receiving the answer firsthand: a resounding “Yes!”
