We must fight the dictators To the editor: In the March 30 edition of the Herald Mail, Elisabeth Smith made a statement which needs clarification. She wrote Iraq had nothing to do with Sept. 11, 2001, and al-Qaeda was not in Iraq at that date. And then points out al-Qaeda is in Iraq now because the U.S. is. This is, on the face of it, quite true. But a point is trying to be made that fails the test of critical thinking and the historical facts. The contention was never that Iraq had anything to do with 9/11, the contention was Afghanistan did. We knew for a fact al-Qaeda was in Afghanistan and we ran them and the Taliban out. Though neither group is giving up, no one expected they would just roll over and go away.

According to AAA, the average price of self-serve regular gasoline in Hagerstown Thursday was $2.359 per gallon.

Armed with intelligence that they felt pinpointed the location of Saddam Hussein, at about 9 p.m. Eastern Standard time Wednesday, U.S. armed forces launched cruise missiles and precision guided bombs at the Iraqi capital of Baghdad. The time for debate over whether or not this war should be fought is done. Citizens' attention must now be focused on those Americans doing the fighting. Wednesday's American attack set off air raid sirens in Baghdad and observers reported that Iraqi anti-aircraft rounds lit up the skies.

martinsburg@herald-mail.com MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A man charged with triggering a traffic accident that killed three people last summer will not stand trial next week as had been planned, because a crucial witness is a National Guardsman stationed in Baghdad. Berkeley County Prosecutor Pamela Games-Neely said Monday morning that she petitioned to have the witness released from his military obligation, but the request was denied. Military officials may not have realized how important the witness - Public Service Commission Officer John Skaggs - is to the case, she said.
