Since our first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take corporate or government funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. If everyone who tunes in to Democracy Now! gave just $4, we could cover our operating expenses for the entire year. Really, that’s all it would take. Right now a generous donor will DOUBLE your donation, making it twice as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.

Bush Refuses to Promise To Hand Over 9/11 Docs

HeadlineOct 28, 2003

In the escalating battle between the White House and the independent 9/11 commission, President Bush yesterday refused to agree to turn over the classified intelligence reports wanted by the commission. Bush said the documents were “very sensitive.” The commission has threatened to subpoena the White House for the documents if they are not voluntarily handed over. Among the wanted documents are the daily briefings prepared by the CIA for the President. On the campaign front Democratic presidential candidates Howard Dean and Joseph Lieberman called on Bush to hand over the documents. Dean said “The administration’s current stonewalling suggests that there is more that they knew and want to hide from the American public.”
