Letter to the NY Times about Libby indictment
To the Editor:
With the indictment of I. Lewis Libby Jr., we are seeing the beginning of the end of the Bush White House and the Republican majority in Congress.
Absolute power corrupts absolutely.
The Bush administration, handed a large budget surplus, world sympathy and a veritable political free ride after 9/11, has left us deficit-ridden and bogged down in Iraq.
Instead of providing vision and leadership, it has given us division and a steady diet of attack politics.
Tom DeLay and Mr. Libby are only the tip of the iceberg. The American people are waking up to how much they have been misled by men who are not only foolish but also accused of being criminals.
The sad news is that the damage is done. Our troops are dying, and our international reputation is in tatters.
