Guam - Saying they missed out, Republican Minority Leader Senator Frank Blas, Jr. sent letters to the 15 United States senators who made a fuel stop to Guam and failed to meet with elected leaders. In the letter Blas wrote that the people of Guam have been patiently waiting for the nation to treat them with the same respect and dignity that the us expects of other nations.

He told KUAM News, "We have been patiently waiting for the sincere and committed opportunity to discuss and decide for ourselves our political identity to the world. We have been patiently waiting to be treated with the respect and dignity embodied and held by the principles of our nation."

The lawmaker has asked the senators to make up for the missed opportunity by either visiting the island or holding public hearings in the nation's capitol to hear from the people of Guam.
