We Must Overcome

We Must Overcome

Dear Editor;

I was recently moved by more disturbing news that the number of people who understood the language of Arabic in the CIA to translate covert wiretaps was a small portion. I find it to be most ironic considering that region of the world has been extremely difficult, since the post cold war period. However, it is for obvious reasons why this may possibly be true, seeing the past history of our nation.

Our nation has yet to arrive at the multitude of nationalities, race, religion, creed and culture that made the United States the success history of the world. That is why it is not surprising that since the attack on the World Trade Center there have been a series of verbal and physical attacks on American citizens, presumed guilty by association.

If we as Americans are to continue our success advancement in the new world. We have to overcome our fears and contempt for each other.

Next we have to become more vigilant to the ideology of other ethnic groups incorporated into the most sensitive areas of our national security and intelligence, without fear of usurp.

Until we as Americans overcome the entrapment of fear, these types of worldly issues will persist to be the nemesis of our nation and the new and free world, in the 21st century.
