PFB 9/11 ARCHIVES:Keep All Options Open
by Margaret S. - Posted Sat September 22, 2001 @ 12:00 PM
One of the things that makes America great is the ability of citizens like me to air complaints with my government. That's the purpose of this letter, to discuss the other issue at The White House and why I'm upset.
Just so you know, I've never contacted your agency before, but I still think my input is valuable.Mr. President,
I realize that it has been almost 2 weeks since the horrific events took place, but only now do I feel that I am composed enough to comment on the job you're doing. I will admit, I have no love for your family's politics and did not vote for your father, your brother or yourself, but now is not the time for politics. I want to say that I do commend you on the difficult job you had thrust upon you. I feel as if you've taken us down the correct path. I just pray that you use your power wisely. Please don't put us on the same level with those demonic persons that have no regard for human life. There are many innocents in the world and I would hope that they will not share the same fate as those in New York, Washington DC and Pennsylvania. I do agree that there needs to be someone held accountable. Please keep up the good work.
Here's what I'd like to see happen: Make sure that every i is dotted and every t is crossed and you know without a doubt that you have the right persons. Please don't lead us down the path to total world destruction.
In the past, I've been dissatisfied with your organization, and it's debatable whether taxpayers get their money's worth from you. In comparison to other organizations, yours seems to be much more effective in what you're able to accomplish.
In the spirit of good government and civility, I hope to receive a response from you soon.
