Congress to hold hearing on Cheney's involvement with the Klamath fish kill

From the AP:

Democrats on the House Natural Resources Committee said Tuesday they will hold a July 31 hearing to look into the role Vice President Dick Cheney may have played in the 2002 die-off of about 70,000 salmon near the California-Oregon border.

Rep. Nick Rahall, D-W.Va., the panel's chairman, said he has invited Cheney to appear at the hearing, but a spokeswoman for the vice president said he was not likely to attend.

Klamath-Cheney tale is all fiction

Here's an opinion piece by the mayor of Klamath Falls and Dan Keppen, who is one of the main characters in Battle for the Klamath, arguing that the Washington Post series (below) and other allegations about the Bush Administration's role in the Klamath controversy are false and "anti-farmer".

In the documentary, I made an effort to talk with people on both sides of the issue, and I found few people who were anti-farmer, or anti-Indian tribe, but many people who wanted too much of a resource that was not, and is not, readily available in the Klamath Basin: water.
