ANALYSIS/OPINION:

I was an interrogator in Vietnam and Cambodia during the Vietnam War. I believed my responsibilities were to save American lives. No one has ever been able to convince me that saving lives is not an achievable goal.

Americans, whether they serve in combat or watch a race in an American city, deserve no less. It is terribly troubling that those who administer our government don’t see protecting Americans the same way I do. Yes, Mr. Obama, I am speaking to you: Those who seek to kill masses of people in connection with terrorist actions should not be protected during their interrogations for the collection of information. What does it say about you, Mr. President, that protecting Americans is not the highest priority on your list?

The U.S. Constitution has a primary intent: to protect the people of this country. You took an oath to serve and protect the Constitution.

You commented in Cairo that “we have a responsibility to join together on behalf of the world we seek — a world where extremists no longer threaten our people.” Mr. President, we the people hold you to that standard.
