Lanny Davis suggests there are four officials who should appear before a “Truth and Reconciliation Commission” (“Truth and reconciliation - or retribution and revenge?” Nation, Monday). Let me suggest four more. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat, Rep. Jane Harman, California Democrat, and Sen. John D. Rockefeller IV, West Virginia Democrat, should testify under oath about when they learned of “enhanced” interrogation techniques and what objections, if any, they raised at the time.

The fourth should be the political hack who, while masquerading as a Senate Intelligence Committee staffer, authored the memo detailing a plan to hijack the intelligence oversight process to win the 2004 election. It would be particularly enlightening to hear this “patriot” testify under oath about whom he discussed this scheme with while brave Americans were fighting and dying. The South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission included testimony from both the government and the African National Congress. Surely Sen. Patrick J. Leahy, the Vermont Democrat who suggested the formation of such a commission here, could add just four more persons to testify - in the interest of truth and reconciliation.
