The Honorable Condoleezza Rice
Secretary of State
U.S. Department of State
2201 C Street, N.W.
Washington, DC 20520

Dear Secretary Rice:

State Department official Alberto Fernandez should be fired for calling U.S. Iraq policy stupid and arrogant on the pro-terrorist Al-Jazeera TV network. His comments only encourage the terrorists to kill more Americans. But beyond his outrageous remarks is the basic problem of U.S. officials naively thinking they can make a dent in the channelís anti-American stand. The policy pursued by Karen Hughes of putting U.S. officials on Al-Jazeera, supposedly to present the American point of view, has been a complete disaster. Itís time to fight and expose terror television. And that includes Al-Jazeera International.
