Easy for Ben Franklin to say
Re: Intrusion is too much (Metro, June 10)
Letter writer John Ost quotes Benjamin Franklin as saying, “Those who give up liberty for security deserve neither.”
I wonder if it would not be in order to add that Benjamin Franklin lived in a world where rampant tossing of bombs at civilian gatherings was unknown and that today’s leadership is being vilified for the lapses that led to the slaughter of embassy staff in Benghazi.
