Re: Charles P. Cummiskey's letter to Mr Lodge
Malcolm G. Ratcliffe


Is it safe to assume that if the boss says kill these people, you are absolved of any crime? By the tone of Mr Cummiskey's letter, I'll also assume he holds the BOSS responsible? I don't see too many bosses getting their turn in the dock.


Wearing a uniform does not relieve a person of basic morals and decency, but it makes a hell of an excuse. Clark's (the boss too) a war criminal, Mr Lodge merely stated a fact.


The only differences in American politics are the names; Democrat and Republican. The same murderous wonks run both parties.
