Operation Iraqi Freedom Documents:

At the request of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the US Army Foreign Military Studies Office has created this portal to provide the general public with access to unclassified documents and media captured during Operation Iraqi Freedom. The US Government has made no determination regarding the authenticity of the documents, validity or factual accuracy of the information contained therein, or the quality of any translations, when available.

When the US Government is willing to stand behind these documents, then maybe I'll give them due consideration.

These come from the same administration that was disseminating to the unsuspecting US public, propaganda thinly disguised as video news releases to garner public support for the Medicare prescription drug benefits, paying journalists to write favorable columns and paying the Iraqi news organizations to publish favorable coverage of the war.

Sounds like a contradiction to me? If you don't trust this administration for the reasons you've stated, how would a decision by this administration to stand behind the documents, lend more credibility to and influence your favorable consideration of them?

The amount of detail in these documents is incredible. Some of these details could only be known to Saddam and his henchmen. In addition to that, some information actually puts the US government in a bad light. Like for example when Saddam and Company openly discuss international oil politics. In my mind, we are getting the raw data.
