To tell the truth
'Amazing things have been happening lately. The usual suspects have tried to silence reporting about prison abuses by accusing critics of undermining the troops - but the reports keep coming. The attorney general has called yet another terror alert - but the press raised questions about why. At a White House morning briefing, Terry Moran of ABC News actually said what many thought during other conveniently timed alerts: "There is a disturbing possibility that you are manipulating the American public in order to get a message out."' - Paul Krugman.
