Re "Obama is no Nixon" (Letters, Sept. 5): Kevin Moen believes that I am young and states that I need to get my facts in order. Well I'm 69 years old and retired after 28 years in the CIA.
Richard Nixon should have been impeached for using such idiots to do the job. He was not a bad president, though Watergate was a mess and a disgrace.
Moen blames civil servants inside the Internal Revenue Service for targeting tea party groups. However the director of the IRS visited the president more than 100 times. What were they talking about?
In Operation Fast and Furious, Attorney General Eric Holder had a presidential finding allowing him to proceed with the project. I believe that's the reason Barack Obama used his power to avoid providing the documents to Congress. It appears that might be the one lacking information.
