Focus turns from the "liars" to the "lied to." What will we do?
Introducing an essay by Jonathan Schell, Tom Engelhardt writes: "Who knew that what we had was an administration of ...lexicographers, grammarians, and philologists, intent on parsing sentences, slicing meanings, arguing over the exact definitions of words, the exact point, for instance, where torture becomes torture..."

Schell calls for a new discussion, "It's subject... neither the justifications for the war in Iraq nor the President's credibility -- for both are obviously in tatters -- but the response to all this by the country. The spotlight now shifts from the liars to the lied-to. How do we -- in the news media, in the country at large -- like it?"
