Nasty Letters To Crooked Politicians

As we enter a new era of politics, we hope to see that Obama has the courage to fight the policies that Progressives hate. Will he have the fortitude to turn the economic future of America to help the working man? Or will he turn out to be just a pawn of big money, as he seems to be right now.

Friday January 7: DEMOCRACY NOW!:

* Gonzales Grilled on Role in Torture at Confirmation Hearing *

Alberto Gonzales' role in paving the legal groundwork that led to the
torture of detainees in Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay was the central
focus of a Senate hearing yesterday, which is considering his nomination
to succeed John Ashcroft as attorney general. Gonzales delivered more
than seven hours of testimony, most of it responding to questions from
Committee members on his role in setting the stage for the abuse of
detainees. We hear excerpts of the hearing and speak with journalist
Mark Danner of the New Yorker and author of Torture and Truth: America,
Abu Ghraib, and the War on Terror.
