Dear Mr. President,
I know this is arriving after the fact, but I wanted all the brouhaha to subside before I sent my thoughts and comments.
Congratulations on bringing Bin Laden to justice… I don’t say for killing him because I think that’s kind of ghoulish, but you did indeed exact justice. In fact, I think it was the perfect solution to an unwinnable problem. If you had captured him like Saddam Hussein then the country would have been further divided by how to handle a trial, his care, his faith, etc… His followers, would never accept how America treated him, no matter what we did. You know that to be true just from how they have responded to his burial at sea. In short, there would be constant criticism, which would only serve as another distraction from our real problems, like unemployment, health care… you know the whole list better than I do.

We have so many of our own problems here at home that need our desperate attention… so tomorrow I will talk about some of the problems facing ordinary people… people like my brother who was out of work for so long that the stress finally killed him. People like my sister who is upside down in her house, and cannot get relief from B of A or anyone else she had contacted.
In closing for today, I want to thank you again for fulfilling your promise to get Bin Laden… you did a great job, and please think about bringing home some of our troops.
