I saw your ping from the other thread asking about the memo: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/1209454/posts?page=187#187
Since then, I see you found this thread.
When I started this thread, I started getting links and docs emailed and freepmailed. The more I read, the more I searched and the more I've found. I've sourced everything the best I could.
So I'm not all that helpful with context of events. I'm learning most of this as I go. :( Sorry.
No apologies needed! You have assembled an *amazing* collection of facts here! I have pinged a few folks via email with the link. Bravo! Thanks!
