The exorbitant cost of the ‘war on terror’

Regarding the post on the Pentagon burning the Osama bin Laden death photos, Andrew Everett writes:

Recently, I read a 1967 Washington Post column by Art Buchwald in which he estimated that it cost $323,000 to kill one enemy combatant in Vietnam. Mr. Buchwald then questioned whether the U.S. would be better off to offer Viet Cong defectors “a $25,000 house, a color TV, free education for their children and a paid-up country club membership.” Funny — haha. A $25,000 house!!!

What a Russian leader thought about JFK

A reader, Frankie, writes:

I was at Dealey Plaza the same day that [Mikail] Gorbachev was there.  I met him when I accidentally bumped into him at one of the exhibits.  I watched as he penned a note in the guest book.  He was extremely friendly and even with all the men in long black coats surrounding him, he was very gracious.  For a North Carolina girl, it was quite exciting to meet him.

And here’s what the last leader of the Soviet Union had to say about the causes of JFK’s death.
