William Rivers Pitt | An Open Letter to Richard Cohen

William Rivers Pitt An Open Letter to Richard Cohen

I love Truthout. I found out today that William Rivers Pitt is a former teacher who is outraged but what has happened in this country.
Here is a quote from his letter that sings truth loud and clear:
Why the anger?
It can be summed up in one run-on sentence: We have lost two towers in New York, a part of the Pentagon, an important American city called New Orleans, our economic solvency, our global reputation, our moral authority, our children's future, we have lost tens of thousands of American soldiers to death and grievous injury, we must endure the Abramoffs and the Cunninghams and the Libbys and the whores and the bribes and the utter corruption, we must contemplate the staggering depth of the hole we have been hurled down into, and we expect little to no help from the mainstream DC press, whose lazy go-along-to-get-along cocktail-circuit mentality allowed so much of this to happen because they failed comprehensively to do their job.
