Dear Editor:Karl Rove was sighted in Aspen last Friday at the Forstmann Little & Co. gathering at the Jerome by some friends of mine. Nearby was George Lucas – both known for amazing special effects!Amazing that Karl has survived Enron, Enron Europe (Caspian intrigue), the Carlyle Group (Saudi intrigue), Iraq, WMD, Valerie Plame and now also the FEMA debacles along with, of course, his “re-elected” president.How is it that FEMA was so slow when Nicolas Davies of the Online Journal states with regard to the Downing Street memos, “The British documents show that they were already committed to ‘regime change’ in Iraq by April 2002. Britain’s Ministry of Defense and two senior U.S. generals have confirmed that offensive military operations began in May 2002, without authorization from the U.S. Congress, the British Parliament, or the Security Council”?Finally, the excellent quote by Mr. Davies, “We are now engaged in an intractable war whose principal victims are the civilian population of Iraq.”Thanks, George. Thanks, Karl.Sven Erik AlstromLawrence, Kan. and Aspen
