LETTER- Rall biased and unaware

The following line by Ted Rall in the January 29 issue [Essay: "Dour Prez: Why Obama is Scarier Than W,"]amazed me: "The international community, which understands that the 2001 U.S. invasion of Afghanistan had no more to do with 9/11 than the war with Iraq..."

If Mr. Rall actually believes this, he is as biased and unaware of reality as right wing "crazies" such as Ann Coulter and Sean Hannity.

In the future, I think that the Hook should be a bit more selective in deciding which essays to print.
