A LETTER TO DAVID REMNICK, THE EDITOR OF THE NEW YORKER

Dear David Remnick, I happened to have the opportunity to read the New Yorker September 11 anniversary issue of last year, quite belatedly, but at leisure, and unhurriedly and in its entirety, and I am utterly appalled to find no mention there of the U.S., in the persons of Z. Brzezinski & President Carter agreeing to destabilize Afghanistan in 1979 [just imagine, destabilizing a country of twenty five million human beings and perhaps twice as many sheep on the whom of trying to get the stupid Russian bear to wound himself there, and Ziggie still proud!]; nor of Casey/ Reagan & the SSI creating the worldwide Mujaheddin and supplying them with Stinger missiles; and then abandoning those idealistic folk to their own devices once they were no longer needed. Is there any surprise at their blow-back, just for this series of infamies? and their blow-back ?... If course, revenge makes the world go around and increases the power and sophistication of weapons! 
 Not a smidgen of these elementaries, which the lowest of CIA drudges know and will acknowledge, is to be found , not a hint of that appears in your mostly self-pitying pages. But at least one Senator votedagainst the Iraq War resolution! Alas. Not much has changed fundamentally since I arrived on these shores at about the time of the McCarthy era.
Sincerely,
Michael Roloff
