No compassion for U.S. POWs

January 04, 2008

Re "Defense bill's demise stymies ex-POWs' suit," Dec. 30

This article states that 17 ex-POWs, pilots who were shot down and brutalized by Saddam Hussein's regime, are suing the Iraqi government for damages.

The Bush administration is denying their lawsuit, claiming that the money would place a financial burden on the Iraqi government and strain the relationship between Iraq and the United States.

Is this administration more loyal to a corrupt foreign government than to our own troops who were prisoners of war?

This administration has no shame, loyalty or compassion for those who are fighting to protect our country.
