Spoils of War

April 18, 2002

Either those criticizing the Special Forces concerning the picture of Taliban fighter John Walker Lindh naked and trussed up have short memories or are hypocrites ("U.S. Soldiers Posed for Photos With Lindh," April 13). Show us again the pictures of airplanes hitting the World Trade Center and of the twin towers crumpling on Sept. 11 as a result of the terrorism of Lindh's compatriots in the Taliban. Then maybe the critics will remember what it's all about.

Then let them admit who among them wouldn't be wary of a captured traitor; who among them wouldn't want to record the triumph of capturing and, yes, humiliating a supporter of Arab terrorism.
