Inspectors General Investigate Bush Science Suppression

Did a Bush public affairs officer filter or stifle government communications relating to science when it they might not agree with Bush politics?

Sen. Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J., said he was informed that the inspectors general for the Commerce Department and NASA had begun “coordinated, sweeping investigations of the Bush administration’s censorship and suppression” of federal research into global warming. “These investigations are critical because the Republicans in Congress have ignored this serious problem,” Lautenberg said.

I’d trust this investigation a bit more if Democrats were in control of congress, but this is better than nothing.
