If you listen to the song publicizing the Truth and Reconciliation Committee (TRC) that plays in the Liberian national media, it would seem the Commission is proceeding at a steady clip. Sadly, this is a less than accurate reflection of reality. At The Hague, former president Charles Taylor's trial has been adjourned. Meanwhile, the TRC has been unable to set an opening date for its public hearings in Monrovia. With little success, its nine commissioners are attempting to convince Liberians and backers that they are ready and able to make the TRC work.
