More Bushron/Raygun coverups

The obvious target of the new law [Executive Order 13233] is the Reagan papers. For more than a year, Reagan’s aides, backed up by the Bushies, have refused to release more than 68,000 pages they owe the nation under the 1978 law. Perhaps this has something to do with the fact that former Reagan officials like Elliott Abrams, John Negroponte, Otto Reich, Colin Powell, budget director Mitch Daniels Jr. and Chief of Staff Andrew Card — to say nothing about the president’s own father — may be a bit uncomfortable about revealing the truth about decisions they took in office.
