LA Times Cover-up Over Hiller?

Following up on my LA Times story, Nikkie Finke from the LA Weekly has more info about David Hiller taking over the LA Times:

New Publisher Was Rumsfeld Friend & Part Of Controversial Reagan Administration U.S. Immigration Policy Calling For 'Concentration Camps--I'm told that Hiller was in charge of the task force on immigration for the Justice Department and was instrumental in dealing with all sorts of policy initiatives including plans for mass deportations back to Mexico of Mexicans in the U.S., illegal alien internment camp proposals, and calls for indefinite imprisonment for Cuban boatlift refugees. All this tested the waters for the Reagan administration and eventually laid the legal framework for the Bush administration's present-day Guantánamo on

Also noted is that his good buddy Donald Rumsfeld was a mean squash player. That's just beautiful. Have fun with that one.
