THE BRAD BLOG blogged Thursday's historic Democratic hearings on the Downing Street minutes; and Brad has put his raw notes online. This is the closest many of us will come to hearing John Conyers, Jr., Jerrold Nadler, Maxine Waters, Barney Frank, Barbara Lee, Joe Wilson, and many others, testify live on the deceptions and lies the Bush administration used to get us into Iraq; it is well worth your time.

Brad has captured many powerful statements from the hearings, but the one that hit me the hardest was his mention of the letter Cindy Sheehan (mother of Casey Sheehan, killed in Iraq) read aloud from a young man whose brother hung himself with a garden hose after coming home from Iraq.

UPDATE: Shakespeare's Sister also live-blogged the hearings.
