A forum for Princeton residents to express opinions about local and national issues
Question of the Week: "What are your views on how the administration is handling the Iraqi prisoner scandal?"
"I think that I have to wait and reserve judgment until they finish the whole process, which includes trying people, seeing who is guilty, and see how far up the chain it goes."
John Boyd, Cherry Hill Road
"The reports came out in December, January and February, and I have not heard good answers to why things were not looked into in depth then. Why those higher-ups are saying they did not know about it until recently. So that¹s why I am disillusioned and feeling that again we are not getting straight information from the administration."
Ken Kowalski, Ewing Street
"I do not trust the administration in any respect, and I think that they are doing their best to cover themselves."
Lucy Mackenzie, Franklin Avenue
"I am concerned with the way the prison crisis has been handled, especially the recent allegations that high-level administration officials have been responsible for setting the policies that were adopted at Abu Ghraib."
Jim Smith, Jefferson Road
"I think that Mr. Rumsfeld has not shown enough compassion for the situation. His "I¹m sorry" apology was not enough. He should have shown more feeling and have taken more action against the people who did such a thing; and the people who did it need to be punished severely."
Laura Harmon, Chicopee Drive
