Writer defends his letter

In defense of my letter that the terrorists won, the people of Watertown had no choice. If they did not come out of their house, the men with the guns would have come in and taken them out. All the people of Watertown are not happy with the loss of their Fourth Amendment rights.

Second, the war with terror is not about killing Americans: That is only a tool that they use. They want to destroy our democracy because it goes against their beliefs and they won in Watertown. And, if you think that an honest, law-abiding citizen being forced out of his or her house at gun point is a good thing, I feel sorry for you.

I have no problem dying at the hands of a terrorists, but I will die a free man. That is more important to me than giving up my constitutional rights.
