SCARBOROUGH: So, after “The New York Times” censored Jeffrey’s letter, and especially the part that really is at the heart of what he was feeling over there about this mission, you contacted “The Times.” And you are telling me they did not respond to your letter?
LICKNESS: Well, I did it by Internet, and I got a reply back saying that they had received it and they would get it to the right department to respond or do something with, but, since then, I have not heard anything.
And, quite frankly, I never really did expect that they would do anything. I was just hoping they would, but I didn’t expect them to.
SCARBOROUGH: How’s Jeffrey’s parents and other loved ones responding to this?
LICKNESS: Well, if you are speaking of this being the story in “The Times,” I don’t think anybody is all that surprised.
We are disappointed. I think that’s the part of it. Although what is ironic, by them leaving out the most important part of Jeffrey’s letter, it’s gotten more publicity, so in one sense, the whole episode really does honor Jeffrey, because this story has gotten a lot more publicity than it would have had “The Times” actually run the whole letter.
For that, we thank Michelle Malkin.
