To our military comrades at war with terrorists

John S. Cardona wrote a vicious untruth in his letter of October 29, and in doing so demonstrated disrespect for your Commander-in-Chief, Barack Obama.
Cardona falsely attributed a direct quote to the president and then used it to vilify your Commander and questioned his even being an American.
I know the quote is a lie, because something rather unusual happened when I went to advanced search on Google and used the “exact wording or phrase” option and typed in Cardona’s quote: “If you capture a terrorist, question him and let him go.”
The unusual response was that I got the exact quote within two seconds. Also unusual was getting only one response, rather than 100,000-plus. The single Google response displayed was http://www.thevillagenews.com/story/41748 and came from John S. Cardona, an unmitigated fabricator. I now know the real source of Cardona’s quote: his own poisoned mind.
President Obama is an honorable man and a responsible commander, deeply troubled with the growing loss of lives of our dedicated and patriotic troops in Afghanistan.
