A pink slip for top leadership?

Dear Editor:Rumsfeld isn’t the only one who should resign. The “elected” president and vice-president are also responsible for approving the Bush doctrine of pre-emption, using depleted uranium, phosphorous bombing and cluster bombs in civilian areas in Iraq and Afghanistan. And then there is torture.Democracy Now reports that birth defects are now five times greater in Iraq than prior to 2003 due to depleted uranium exposure. Our troops will be coming home having also been exposed to this toxicity.No presidential pardons should be allowed for war crimes. Sven Erik AlstromLawrence, Kan. and Aspen
