Abby Zimet

In an excerpt from his autobiography "True Compass," which goes on
sale today, the late Sen. Ted Kennedy is eloquent and unsparing on the
Bush administration's "misuse of U.S. power" that was Iraq. An excerpt
via TPM here.

Looking over journals, speeches and memos, "I am struck once again at how clear the
march to disaster seemed to me at the time, and how brazenly the
administration's justifications departed from reality." 

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
