New York, Dec 4 : Want to take home an apology letter written by US President elect Barack Obama? Well, all you need to do is dish out 24,000 dollars.
A 2007 letter written by Obama apologising to the father of a slain soldier is up for sale.
In the letter, Obama is apparently expressing regret for having said that more than 3,000 lives of the "bravest young Americans" were "wasted" in Iraq.
The letter was addressed to Bernie Hennessey, who had ripped him for his "deeply insulting" statement.
"I do not, in fact, consider the courageous sacrifices of heroes like your son, Jack, a waste . . . I take your words to heart and I will be sure to pray for you and your family," The New York Post quoted Obama as writing in the letter.
