I just submitted a letter to the editor of the Washington Post. A MoveOn e-mail asked for people to send letters marking the first anniversary of Operation Iraqi Freedom. I felt it was important to counteract what is sure to be a media full court press by the administration claiming "success" in Iraq. Here's the text of my letter and I'll post again if it runs in the Post.

As the first anniversary of Operation Iraqi Freedom draws near, our thoughts should be with the families with loved ones serving in Iraq who are wondering when they'll see their children, their spouses, and their parents return home safely. I am most saddened by the fact that so many troops have been killed or wounded in a war, the reasons for which the Bush administration has not been up-front about with the American people. Our collective lack of outrage is shameful. President Bush should remember that war, with it’s huge sacrifices, should never again be used as anything other than a last resort.

Feedback is welcomed.
