We're with Vermont's Sen. Leahy, chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, who wants more torture memos released and a truth commission to study how it came to this. "I want to know who was it who made the decisions that we will violate our own laws," he said.

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
