Dr. George Tiller, a well known late term abortion doctor, was gunned down in his church.
In Little Rock, Ark., soldiers Pvt. William Long and Pvt. Quinton I. Ezeagwula were gunned down in front of a recruitment center.
Long, 23, was killed and Ezeagwula, 18, was seriously wounded.
Both of these killings were uncalled for. Tiller was killed by a Christian extremist, Long by a Muslim convert extremist.
We are still troubled by the actions and non-actions of our president and federal government in dealing with both of these incidents.
Tiller by all accounts was responsible for the deaths of over 60,000 late term babies, but the president and his attorney reacted to his death by going on the public airways to bemoan his loss. Plus, the attorney general sent out federal officers to protect others that believed like Tiller did.
We accept that the President did this. In this country just because you disagree with another person's philosophy does not give you the right to kill them for it, which is why we still have a court system and a Supreme Court that has worked throughout our existence.
What we don't accept is the fact that the president and attorney general made no public pronouncements on the fact that soldier William Long was killed doing his duty for all of us on American soil by a Muslim extremist.
William Long, you deserved more than this from our nation's leader.
