Thanks for the ping!
I've got link after link of confirming information from before these documents were released.
These documents are among those that have been found since the takeover of Iraq. My guess is that there is the stated reason and an unstated reason why they've been slow to release them.
For the record, they've said that translation is slow and there are millions of pages. That's true to a degree, and especially if someone insists on perfect translations.
Off the record, my bet is that they had to have some means of going over these for any information about chemical, nuclear, or biological LOCATIONS before they released them. It wouldn't help to let insurgents have access to documents detailing the location(s) of nuke, bio, or chemicals that had been hidden.
Thanks for your information. Are you thinking the blank pages are just that and not redactions? I haven't researched the information about the release of the documents so I just assumed there were heavy redactions.
Also, I had never considered Terry Nichols a convert to Islam, so I am not sure why they used those words. No one really ever talked about him having any kind of religion until his jail house conversion to Christianity.
Thanks again for everything.
Very interesting ;o)
Your excellent analysis is going to someone who does speak Arabic. Thanks again for all your help. There are some interesting things in these notes. Maybe someone is trying to help get the word out and is steering key people to the needle in the haystack.
They looked like blank pages to me. Where pages had writing on them, the writing was handwritten and could have been compressed considerably. By not including the drawings and doodling, even greater levels of compression could have been achieved.
A couple of pages showed evidence of an eraser having been used. I do wonder what might have been on those few pages and who did the erasing.
The new government way to redact pencil marks - erase it:)
interesting article bump
I wonder if after the plot to bomb planes going from the UK to the US the public will pay attention?
