The Truth


Never mind the shameful official U.S. response to Wikileaks' Iraq War Logs and their empty nattering about "breaking the law." The Logs reveal a gut-churning scale of abuses, civilian deaths, war crimes and cover-ups that must see the light of day. We applaud Wikileaks for doing what the media should have done long ago. See the Guardian's extraordinarily thorough coverage here; more from AlJazeera here.

"This disclosure is about the truth. We hope to correct some of that attack on the truth that occurred before the war, during the war, and which has continued on since the war officially concluded." - Julian Assange

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site.

If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do. Without Your Support We Simply Won't Exist.
