Dear Mr. President,
My letter is short and right to the point. Your actions of releasing the five terrorists is the same as pardoning them of their crimes. Why would you do this? Do you think these terrorists will just walk away and never pick up arms again? You know enough of muslin law to know they will never stop fighting and killing. It's their way of life. Your actions made the US look foolish and it made your presidency look weak. I ask, "if you had to do it all over, would you?" I'm hoping you have seen your stupid mistake and wish you had done otherwise. By the way, what are you doing to bring home the marine held captive in Mexico?
