Re "Files reveal tactics of cover-up" (Page A4, Jan. 11): When the incident of the huge traffic jams occurred on the George Washington Bridge, there were complaints by citizens, and accusations that the situation was deliberate malfeasance. The bridge traffic jam created a serious situation in two states, not merely an inconvenience. There was a serious economic impact. People with serious emergency medical problems were stuck in traffic for many hours, and if there had been a serious fire somewhere, it could have resulted in major loss of life. Is it too much to expect that, as the governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie would have looked into this situation, convened meetings with the Port Authority and asked some hard questions? The inescapable conclusion is that either Christie is an incompetent governor or else he was party to the bridge incident and lied about being blindsided.
