Re: Post-Bush National Security
Unless a truth commission or trial is developed by independent internal or external entities there is no likelihood that the Democratic congress have any incentive to have their own complicity in the use of rendition, waterboarding, FISA violations, etc. become public knowledge. They as well as the Republicans just want to see this go-away.
The only way I see the truth emerging is for a type of class action in the courts. I am sure that the government will oppose this sort of suit as not having the standing to have this informaiton available in a disclosure process.
