An open letter to Director David Petraeus,
As I listen to the news tonight about the killing of our Navy Seals, although retired, in Benghazi, it renews my grief over the death of my nephew on August 6, 2011 in Afghanistan. He, too, was a Navy Seal, father of two young sons, with another one not to be born until after his death. My nephew displayed the same kind of heroism as that demonstrated by Tyrone Woods, and men of such integrity are too few to be wasted in fights that might lead to bragging rights for any US President, much less for one who has never served in the line of battle. My heart grieves for the families of these men who were literally abandoned with time enough allowed for support but prolonged their fight to the death because they could not believe their government would not support them.
I have held you in such high regard, as did my nephew, since your service to our country in Iraq and Afghanistan, where he served. I can only hope that your integrity and the respect you garnered through your service there will not be tarnished by what appears from my vantage point an extreme case of coverup for political purposes. Our world is crumbling beneath us, our country being decimated by unethical decisions and lies to cover up either incompetence or, as the current political babble would suggest, a president who doesn't share my views on the worth of America, our standards, not just of living, but of values worth holding high in a world that leans more and more toward "redistributing" the respect once enjoyed by the US.
