Sees agenda in ‘agenda’ letter

To the editor:

I have just finished reading the latest edition of the Courier and was quite dismayed when I read the letter "Is move part of agenda?". This letter is a perfect example of misinformation that some "news" organizations spread as part of a political agenda. This letter is filled with misinformation being spread by these organizations to discredit the president.
The decision to move the U.S. Mission was made during the Bush administration, not the current administration as the writer indicates. The reason for the move was twofold, one to be more secure and two to be inside Vatican City and thus closer to the Holy See.
The suggestion that the Mission would be housed in the Italian Embassy in Rome is just ludicrous. Rome is the capital of Italy; therefore, there is no Italian Embassy in Rome.
Finally, usually when a writer presents incorrect information, I have seen the editor insert a footnote explaining anything found to be incorrect. I am most disappointed that the editor in this instance has allowed such a flawed letter to pass for being fact thus continuing to misinform readers.
