Truth Seeping Through Media After Ten Months

David Swanson writes, "Ten months ago we started a coalition at www.AfterDowningStreet.org and organized people to demand coverage of the Downing Street Memos. ... In the ensuing months we've seen a lot of new evidence, smoking gun after smoking gun. ... those not paying close attention, not using the internet, not reading the international press, have never heard of many of the new pieces of evidence, which are listed on the left side of www.afterdowningstreet.org . It's become harder and harder to motivate those in the know to bombard the media with demands to inform those who need to be informed. ... The single most stunning piece of evidence that's passed unnoticed is the memo that two months ago we labeled the White House Memo. Philippe Sands discussed this memo in a new edition of his book "Lawless World," and the Guardian and the BBC reported on it. In fact, at the beginning of February, it was a huge story in media outside the United States Many of the articles that were published are collected here: http://www.afterdowningstreet.org/?q=node/7436 "

Some in the media have started to report about the war plans memo but as Swanson points out, "The media has a long, long way to go still." Also see: white house memo

The memos show the President has been lying to us the whole time.
And what is Bush pulling now? "President George Bush has been holding off-the-record meetings with White House reporters for the past few days, an apparent first since he took office."
