    so they can dig into all the newly available information?

    I have been thinking about sending donations to the NYT.

    Not all Kossacks have the time to digg around....

    •  They're called subscriptions (2+ / 0-)

      though the NYTimes one is pretty pricey.

    •  Funding Kossacks would get results. (4+ / 0-)

      There are several people here who have done stellar detective work in shoestring budgets.  Look at dengre's diaries.

        I suppose this means that we can start with FOIAs.  I really should learn how to do them.  I think that one of the biggest challenges is finding out what documents exist so that you can request them specifically.

      It's about making them realize their duty is to the truth, not the bank accounts of senior management.

      TPM always needs money. So does Robert Parry at consortiumnew.com; he broke many of the Iran Contras stories and today had a story concerning Robert Gates and information he has been seeking via FOIA when Gates was nominated for SecDef. That took a long time and he's still seeking related info, but Bush's EO made even the simplest request a year-long affair.

      There's probably other newsites that are worthy of donation who will specifically go after that info. Parry has written extensively about Gates when he came in as Bill Casey's deputy and his group that continued up through Bush43's years. The story is basically the decline of the CIA main mission as it became increasing politicized, as I've posted upstream.

      Put some bucks where they will count.

      The truth is we are tortured by the truth.
