Justice Delayed

Abby Zimet

It's a telling sign of the distance Obama has strayed from his
zealous promises of transparency that the New York Times, not exactly a
bastion of revolutionary zeal, is now chiding
him for his ongoing coverup of prisoner abuse. They call for "a public
clamor" for full disclosure and prosecution of those responsible; the
tireless ACLU is still working on it. 

"(We need to) demonstrate that this nation has turned the
page on Mr. Bush's shameful policies. Withholding the painful truth
shows the opposite."

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

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
