Your May 28 editorial failed to ask why the U.S. Justice Department is leading an investigation of FIFA, an international organization headquartered in Switzerland with little input from the United States in governing a sport that the rest of the world knows as "football" ["Soccer gets a red card"]. It makes as much sense as if Brazil were to launch an investigation of steroid use in Major League Baseball.

I would think that new Attorney General Loretta Lynch would have better ways to spend taxpayer dollars on issues that directly affect the American people.
