Regarding Walter Hackney’s recent letter to the editor: Thank you for your words, Mr. Hackney. That President Barack Obama would twist history to suit his goal is offensive and wrong! I appreciate reading your succinct and accurate history of those times. I wonder if Obama believes that we, the people, do not know the true history and therefore, people would believe his words with no questions asked. It is the truth that will set us free and not the distorted version of our world’s history by someone in authority who twists the truth for his own gain. Thank you for writing.
