LETTER TO THE EDITOR:

Closing embassy is a defeatist tactic in war on terrorism

The Obama administration’s decision to close the U.S. Embassy in Yemen is a disgusting sign of weakness.

Instead of caving in to al-Qaida’s threats in a cowardly display of retreat and a moral victory for radical Islam, the administration must show some steel in its response to terrorism.

The fact that the British closed their embassy in Yemen is no excuse for the Obama administration to faint.

This nation and the free world is in a war to the death with radical Islam. There’s only one response that makes any sense: Face the threat with determination and defeat it!
