Why Do You Want To Poison Our Soldiers?

Do I laugh or cry?.
Hundreds of thousands of holiday cards and letters thanking wounded American troops for their sacrifice and wishing them well never reach their destination. They are returned to sender or thrown away unopened.

Since the Sept. 11 attacks and the anthrax scare, the Pentagon and the Postal Service have refused to deliver mail addressed simply to "Any Wounded Soldier" for fear terrorists or opponents of the war might send toxic substances or demoralizing messages.
You would think that after sending our troops into an open ended war based on a lie with insufficient manpower and the wrong equipment and with no exit strategy or even a plan for victory that even if a few poisoned oatmeal cookies got through it wouldn't be that big of a deal.
