One of the largest, most thorough resources of information about 9/11, the Iraq War and Katrina isn't a government-owned facility, nor a blogger's website, nor a corporate-owned media outlet.

It's open source.  It's about you and your need for transparency, and it's by you and others who make donations, both in the form of information and operating cash.

It's CooperativeResearch.org, run by the Center for Cooperative Research -- and they desperately need your help.

From the front page at CooperativeResearch.org:

Cooperative Research is out of money and CANNOT continue without your support! We must raise $43,700 over the next 21 days to cover the 4-month period from April to July. It is absolutely necessary that we raise this amount. Please make a tax-deductible donation today.

That's right, donations are tax deductible! Did you get burned this year, not make enough donations?  Here's a chance to fix next year's tax return, by making a donation now.

As of Day 14 out of a 21-day fundraiser, CCR has only raised  a little over $5000 dollars of the targeted $43,700.  Please do what you can to help; let's not lose this valuable resource.

I can't think of a resources with more information about key events and issues than CooperativeResearch.org.  Don't believe me?  Go check for yourself -- and then make a donation.

Thanks so much!  And don't forget, if you have something to contribute to the body of knowledge at CooperativeResearch.org, be sure to add it to a timeline.  You never know whether that one little bit might be enough to crack a story or a case wide open!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
