Rice Hearings

| | Comments (0)
I don't care much whether Rice testifies in public under oath or not, but what I do find amusing is that so many people think the commission will be able to find out more information about what happened if she speaks in public under oath. A Democrat member of the commission said, "We have had private sessions with her. And we will have an adequate explication of what happened. I just think we're missing in terms of our public presentation of the facts the opportunity for the American people to hear her answer these questions as everyone else has."

So just remember, while you're listening today, chances are what you're hearing is not about the commission finding facts, but about hearing it in public. I'm not trying to diminsh the importance of that, but they aren't the same things. slashdot.org
