FDR Legacy …

To the Editor:

Re: FDR as a Progressive President. If interning the Japanese is progressive, if confiscating guns is progressive, if claiming state secrets trump justice for tortured prisoners is progressive, if waging imperialist war under the guise of fighting evil or terror is progressive, if failing to prosecute or even investigate those guilty of war crimes is progressive, if allowing the architects of depression to run amok while tying the hands of the innocent with regulation is progressive… then maybe people who believe in freedom and individual civil liberties should find a new word to describe themselves.
