Well written Cadet...

A Cadet, in reaction to the reaction to the audience the President's address to the Corps of Cadets wrote the following, which I ask you to read.

View From West Point: We Are Not The Enemy

The reaction of the Corps (from what I saw, and which I am open to correction) is in stark contradiction to when President Bush spoke at the Naval Academy. Upon the exit of Bush from the auditorium, he was mobbed by Middies with cameras trying to get a photograph with the Commander in Chief and every line he spoke was greeted with enthusiastic applause.

I am proud of how the Cadets conducted themselves. They were respectful, they were thoughtful, and they were professional. Everything one would hope for from the Officer Corps.
