Letter to the editor

Sent today to the Chattanooga Times & Free Press:

Vice President Dick Cheney's performance in last night's debate was remarkable but for the wrong reasons. It has long been obvious that Cheney trades upon fear better than anyone; indeed, in his hands this has been raised to the level of art. But to hear him say he had never suggested a link between Iraq and 9/11 was astounding. Barely a public breath has passed from this man's mouth in the last three years that did not, in fact, loudly proclaim such a connection. That he denied this in last night's debate is breathtaking in its gall and cynicism. It is corrosive to that which is best about America and its citizens deserve leaders who understand and affirm basic truth. Dick Cheney is not one of those leaders.
