Unbelievable. People get to use newspapers as a vehicle to call for the execution of the president.

PA newspaper: Sorry we published letter calling for Obama's execution

A Pennsylvania newspaper has apologized for publishing a letter to the editor calling for President Barack Obama to be executed.

The Daily Item of Sunbury’s editorial board wrote Thursday that it “bungled the Obama attack letter” and that “no bells went off when the editor handling the letter read it and placed it on the opinion page.”

“The procedure at The Daily Item is for the person editing letters to review the content for offensive language and ad hominem attacks,” the paper wrote.

“Publication is, however, a signal that the opinion is not one we would readily suppress, which can accurately be interpreted as an endorsement of acceptability — much to our chagrin in this instance.”


“The procedure at The Daily Item is for the person editing letters to review the content for offensive language and ad hominem attacks,” the paper wrote. “Publication is, however, a signal that the opinion is not one we would readily suppress, which can accurately be interpreted as an endorsement of acceptability — much to our chagrin in this instance.”

The original letter, written by W. Richard Stover of Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, was published on Monday. It bemoaned the president’s failure to defeat the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant after the terrorist group captured Ramadi, the capital of Iraq’s largest province by land area.

“To the families of those fallen heros [sic] whose blood lies on the sands of Iraq; don’t you think it might be time to rise up against an administration who has adequately demonstrated their gross incompetence?” Stover’s letter read. “I think the appropriate, and politically correct, term is regime change. Forgive me for being blunt, but throughout history this has previously been accompanied by execution by guillotine, firing squad, public hanging.”

“When society dictates,” Stover added, “the end always justifies the means, otherwise the actionwould [sic] not be taken.”

The nearly 78-year-old paper wrote that it was prompted to apologize by reader outrage.

“Our readers and critics have reacted in force, as they should have. We accept their judgment and embrace the calls for heightened awareness and a higher standard for civil discourse.”

“We will strive to do better in the future.”

What is a Ramadi?

Recent national news reveals that ISIS has recaptured Ramadi in Iraq. I assume that we’re expected to ignore the loss of Ramadi to ISIS. Our lead-from-behind coward-in-chief has been strangely quiet on the subject. While he seldom misses the chance to run his mouth on any subject that suits his agenda, apparently he’s having trouble discussing a situation which has become a complete debacle and for which he alone is responsible.

After all — we’re supposed to be friends with our enemies. By all means — expedite withdrawal of U.S. forces, contrary to the advice of those military commanders who cautioned against withdrawal. But their advice was ignored and many were purged because they refused to follow someone so grossly incompetent in the politics and practice of warfare.

So now we’re learning the results of spending billions of taxpayer dollars and thousands of American lives that were expended in the initial capture of Ramadi. Our esteemed leader proclaimed that we should withdraw because the Iraqis were offended by the presence of American troops in their country. So we bailed out — leaving behind billions of dollars of equipment and ammunition, which was promptly captured by ISIS. Yes, this is the same highly skilled organizationthat our misguided leader calledthe JV team.

Hey Barack, would you care to address the nation and expound on your grandioseplans for defeating this JV teamwhich is whipping you soundly?

The saddest part of this situation is the realization that the American blood lost in the initial capture of Ramadi was apparently lost in vain, due solely to the gross incompetence of our commander-in-chief.

To the families of those fallen heros whose blood lies on the sands of Iraq; don’t you think it might be time to rise up against an administration who has adequately demonstrated their gross incompetence?

I think the appropriate, and politically correct, term is regime change. Forgive me for being blunt, but throughout historythis has previously been accompanied by execution by guillotine, firingsquad, public hanging.

I have absolutely no reason to expect that current practice should be any different. The end result is elimination of the problem, the method is superfluous. When society dictates, the end always justifies the means, otherwise the actionwould not be taken.

W. Richard Stover, Lewisburg

Other than the execution part……this is an excellent letter. He hits home on Obama's foreign policy weakness/incompetence.

To be honest, I'm not bothered about this sort of thing. Obviously it's different if there's real intent to do harm to someone - but pretty much whenever someone says "I'm going to kill you" they mean it in a figurative way.

Disrespecting a politician isn't a crime.
