A shameful day for our government

Oct 17, 2013 12:00 am

To the Editor:

It is the evening of Tuesday, October 8, and I have just witnessed the most shameful and disgusting result of the Obama Administration’s efforts to make the partial government shutdown as painful as possible for American citizens. Tonight, Fox News’ Meghan Kelly program showed the disgraceful disregard this Administration has for American veterans. This program showed the Washington Mall with the WWII memorial still barricaded against admission of WWII veterans, while at the same time Nancy Pelosi and other Democratic politicians welcomed thousands of illegal aliens into the rest of the mall!

Worse, the program then showed grieving relatives of five American soldiers killed in Afghanistan over the weekend distressed that the Obama Administration and Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel, himself a Vietnam veteran, “could not find the money to transport the dead soldiers or their relatives to Dover AFB or to provide funerals” for them! Instead, the Administration blames Republicans in the House for causing the shutdown. Even retired Lt. Col. Oliver North was nearly overcome by emotion and disbelief at this outrage, a total disregard for common decency by the Administration.

They can find funds to provide police and escorts for illegals but not for our fallen heroes? Preposterous!

Mr. Grover, you have fallen victim to Fox News' biased and extremely misleading reporting.  Fox News is the master at manipulating images and creative editing.

Your "outrage" is misplaced.

Senator King: “When we grew up, we all got our information from Walter Cronkite. Today, there’s a news service that matches your bias,” he (King) said. “It’s human nature to seek out sources of information that agree with your biases. We’re all living in alternative reality universes, where we don’t share the facts.”

Mr. Grover, Senator King's astute observation fits you to a "T".
