In response to Capt. Michael J. Turley (Readers' Forum, Oct. 31), there is no timetable for criticism of any administration. One is free to do so at any time, particularly when examining the rationale for the Iraq war. However, I commend Capt. Turley for his dedication. Paul of Tarsus said, "If the trumpet gives an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself for the battle?" We have had many uncertain sounds.
