Apparently as fed up with President Obama as many others, the ACLU has placed a full-page newspaper ad urging
him not to back down on the decision to prosecute 9/11 suspects in
civilian courts, as they should be, not in the flawed military
commission system. The dismaying transformation suggested here makes our
collective hearts sink. 

"It's critical that Americans know what is
at stake here: nothing less than America's commitment to the
Constitution and the rule of law...If
President Obama reverses his attorney general's principled decision
under political pressure, it will strike a devastating blow to American
values and do serious damage to our nation's credibility."

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
