In a free society, we will find out the truth, and everybody will see the truth. In a society that is a free society, there will be transparency in the process. People will testify; there will be fair trials, if there are trials; the truth will be known. In societies run by tyrants, you never see the truth. You never find out the truth. This country honors every individual. We believe in human rights and human dignity. And the example we will set for the world will confirm that.

Bush's actions, though, show that he prefers opaqueness in government, not transparency. David Sirota lists five examples, the first one being the scrubbing of the State Department report on terrorism.

Hat tip to Kos.
