Pat, if you're going to complain about people not responding to a question.  
I posed a question to you yesterday regarding abuse of innocent prisoners. 
Given that the Red Cross reports 70 to 90 percent of Iraqi detainees were 
mistakenly arrested, one must conclude that the large majority of abused 
prisoners are guilty of nothing.  I asked you yesterday if the lives of 
these people are less important than the lives of Americans.  Are they?  I 
think Keely answered your question about John Kerry quite well.              
                                                                             
                                                                             
                                                                             
                                         Carl Westberg Jr.
