Letter: Letter comparing U.S. to Nazis crosses the line

Letter comparing U.S. to Nazis crosses the line

The Dec. 13 letter, “Bush and aides should be punished for heinous acts,” comparing America to Nazi Germany is horribly inaccurate.

While some disagree with the treatment of terrorists on a moral basis, it is clear that crucial information has been recovered from terrorists. For example, information the CIA gathered led to the location of Osama bin Laden.

The real savages are the terrorists who would gladly murder thousands of innocents again. A clear difference between Nazi Germany and America: America has not murdered millions of people or tortured people we felt had no information.

These impractical comparisons are counterproductive and just plain wrong. Nothing is accomplished with this foolish so-called similarity.
