Reagan S Speech

March 11, 1987
Reagan finally and reluctantly conceded that he had indeed swapped arms for hostages in dealing with Iran and that this was a mistake. According to polls, the American public arrived at this conclusion months ago. One cannot help but wonder how much better the President's credibility would have fared if he had admitted his mistake from the outset. His failure to do so, despite the evidence, tried the patience of friends as well as opponents at home and abroad. With the passage of time, they came to question not only his candor but his judgment.

What a great speech by President Reagan. After the past several weeks of media puff pieces on Bill Clinton and the rest of his Democrat hopefuls, it is refreshing to hear the words of a real professional with a keen outlook on the real issues and solutions. What I heard has been missing from the campaign and your editorial pages since the Democratic convention; biting humor and truth about the real concerns of Americans. JAMES F. WILSON, San Diego

The President's speech has brought out my most basic English teacher instincts to interpret his unusual vocabulary usage. I suggest that his definitions are well-suited to George Orwell's "1984." A 1987 audience should have at least the following few glossary items at hand: 1. "Freedom fighters/democratic resistance"--Men who, according to virtually every independent human rights organization that have studied their activities, have kidnaped, tortured, raped and murdered hundreds of Nicaraguan civilians.
