A current Disaster in the news media

I don't usually pass on email chain letters but this one is right on the mark: Disasterology special. This one falls into that "Damn! I wish I'd written that! Right On! You go Girl!" Category. Pass it along, please!You have to wonder about the attention span of the folks at AP, LA Times, Washington Post, New York Times, ABC NBC CBS &CNN - Could it possibly be that they can't remember the events of September 11, 2001, and the 3,000 Totally Innocent and Uninvolved United States Citizens who were summarily slaughtered by a gang of religious thugs.Or is the "problem" simply that the press and media in this country don't "get it" and don't want to "get it"? Words like TREASON, SEDITION and TRAITOR must be missing from their dictionaries.Anyway, enjoy the piece below - The Lady has it absolutely correct!The lady who wrote this letter is Pam Foster of Pamela Foster and Associates in Atlanta. She's been in business since 1980 doing Interior design and home planning. She recently wrote the following Letter to a family member serving in Iraq ....... Check it out!

WHAT'S ALL OF THE FUSS?"Are we fighting a war on terror or aren't we? Was it or was it notStarted by Islamic people who brought it to our shores onSeptember 11, 2001?Were people from all over the world, mostly Americans, not brutally Murdered that day, in downtown Manhattan, across the Potomac from Our nation's capitol and in a field in Pennsylvania? Did nearly three Thousand men, women and children die a horrible, burning or crushing Death that day, or didn't they?And I'm supposed to care that a copy of the Koran was "desecrated"? When an overworked American soldier kicked it or got it wet? Well, I don't! I don't care at all.I'll start caring when Osama bin Laden turns himself in and repents For incinerating all those innocent people on 9/11.I'll care about the Koran when the fanatics in the Middle East start Caring about the Holy Bible, the mere possession of which is a crime In Saudi Arabia.I'll care when Abu Musab al-Zarqawi tells the world he is sorry forHacking off Nick Berg's head while Berg screamed through hisGurgling, slashed throat.I'll care when the cowardly so-called "insurgents" in Iraq come out And fight like men instead of disrespecting their own religion by Hiding in mosques.I'll care when the mindless zealots who blow themselves up inSearch of nirvana care about the innocent children within rangeOf their suicide bombs.I'll care when the American media stops pretending that their First Amendment liberties are somehow derived from international law Instead of the United States Constitution's Bill of Rights.In the meantime, when I hear a story about a brave MarineRoughing up an Iraqi terrorist to obtain information, know this:I don't care.When I see a fuzzy photo of a pile of naked Iraqi prisoners whoHave been humiliated in what amounts to a college hazing incident, Rest assured that I don't care.When I see a wounded terrorist get shot in the head when he isTold not to move because he might be booby-trapped, you canTake it to the bank that I don't care.When I hear that a prisoner, who was issued a Koran and aPrayer mat, and fed "special" food that is paid for by my taxDollars, is complaining that his holy book is being "mishandled," YOU Can absolutely believe in your heart of hearts that I don't care.And oh, by the way, I've noticed that sometimes it's spelled"Koran" and other times "Quran." Well, Jimmy Crack Corn and---- You got it, I DON'T CARE!
