The letter everyone seems to be talking about:
dishonorable SEAL update
I just emailed this letter to Mark Divine, the media contact person for the Navy SEALS.
Dear Mr. Divine,
I am the former director of the Decision, Risk and Management Sciences Program at the National Science Foundation. On July 6, I had a disagreement with a gentleman from Colorado on his web site regarding the wisdom of the war in Iraq. The conversation got nasty and I said something very mean and nasty to the effect that I would not care if harm came to my combatant's child.
A former Navy SEAL named Matthew Heidt lied about what happened (saying I threatened the child when I merely expressed indifference to his well-being) on his website and posted my employer's contact information on his website to incite people to call my boss so I would get in trouble. After 300 people emailed my boss on July 8, I felt forced to resign. Mr. Heidt also posted my home address at the same time he posted lies about me, which can only be interpreted as an attempt to incite physical violence against me. It is disgusting for a former Navy SEAL to try to incite violence against a lesbian. Nowhere NEAR as bad as the Marines who rape and murder Iraqi civilians, of course, but still dishonorable.
Mr. Heidt a.k.a. Froggy@blackfive was an unethical word warrior. He is despicable and an embarrassment to your organization.
I am wondering if there is a public relations person I could speak to about my grievances with the former Navy SEAL who was by far, the least honorable combatant in the incident?
