Republicans Oppose Truth! Read All About It!

Abby Zimet

Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah has become the third Republican member of the Senate Judiciary Committee to
come out against the creation of a so-called "truth commission" to
investigate misdeeds by the Bush administration, saying it does not represent "the American way." He called the idea an effort at "demonizing and
criminalizing opponents."

Unless, that is, they are criminals.

Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
