Congratulations on your insightful well-thought editorial. But is anybody listening? Certainly not the Administration, nor the Congress, not even the public.
Despite overwhelming public opinion against the Administration's policy in Central and South America the Congress has kowtowed to the President and the public holds our officials blameless, as if the U.S. policy was being directed by some outside forces.
Some things are unacceptable regardless of partisan politics. In this case it is the stupidity of our people in allowing continued U.S. intervention, which inevitably will push groups such as the Sandinistas closer toward reliance on Soviet help, thereby justifying greater U.S. intervention--a vicious circle of stupidity!
The public's stupidity is only exceeded by the Administration's. Yet in a nation of blindness who is to say the emperor has no clothes.
