Snatch­ing bum­ble from the jaws of com­pe­tence

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

The re­moval of Osama bin Laden should have been a sim­ple an­nounce­ment. Who­ever is in charge of the pres­i­den­tial press of­fice doesn’t seem to have a grasp of pub­lic re­la­tions. A sim­ple mes­sage would have done the job.

That didn’t hap­pen and nu­mer­ous peo­ple have been mak­ing con­flict­ing state­ments. The in­forma- tion about the com­put­ers and com­puter files should have never been re­leased. Whether pic­tures of the body are re­leased and burial at sea are judg­ment calls. These have no real bear­ing on the case. If the in­tent of the White House is to con­fuse the pub­lic it is work­ing. Keith C. De Filip­pis San Jose, Cal­i­for­nia
