I'm new here as far as being registered, lurked about a year. Don't have any answer to solve your questions.
Have been writing my elected people for 8 or 9 years with little and mostly no luck. This state is liberal and probably won't change real soon.
I'm going to keep doing it though. I thought I could probably do it better being here at FR. The very FReepers on this thread tonight are very inspiring people. The support is tremendous.
The time and effort that jveritas alone has put in is amazing. The doc tonight wasn't 2 hours translated and was being sent to talk shows, papers and I don't know where all.
I guess it's just going to be one small step at a time but I'm going to keep taking those steps and I think most everyone on this thread is going to do the same thing.
I'm not much of one to give pep talks but I guess that's what this is. IMO, the MSM isn't going to be able to ignore this forever and I want to see the looks on their faces when they have to start reporting. And I want to know that I might have had some little part of it.
Even if the media pooh-pooh these documents, just getting them mentioned is vital. If the claims of "media bias" continue to rain down on them, they will have to offer at least the appearance of being fair. They will have to cover them.
I'm curious if the Left tried the same tactics to discredit the Verona papers a decade ago. Those documents busted wide open some of their pets ideals.
Ping a ling a ding dong!
Thank you so much for posting this! Post more! Post More!
I'm not much good at putting stuff in words but you just said most all of it, IMO.
Right now I feel like the Unsinkable Molly Brown! Don't try to burst my bubble! ;^) I'm on a roll, baby!
Thanks! I emailed it out to everyone I know plus I sent it to Debra Burlingame.
I hope you are getting some sort of compensation for this - great work!

Thank you for the translations, your effort is large and we are thankful.
Bookmarked..WOW Thank You!
The last one was GOLD.
THIS one is PLATINUM, my FRiend.
God bless YOU!
MNJohnnie is asking if someone can bring this up later on Tony's Thread today.
Wow! Thank you for posting this jveritas, and thank you, fanfan and Howlin, for the ping.
The NY DNC Times can spare us their habit of hypocrisy. We know FULL well they would be all over this if it fed their little pathetic hate Bush bubble world at the Times. This is just a desperate, pathetic, childish rationalization clutched at by the Times to spike information proving Bush right, and the NY Times WRONG on Iraq.
Once again we see the only Adult more pathetically incapable of admitting error then a child, is a "Journalist".
I can't open this one!!!
I have been 'fooling' around on my computer today - but still --
and besides I can open other pdf files --- do I have to download something again
I'm xp home
Thank you jveritas.
We continue to hear the accusations all the time from the left that this is Bush's war, that Bush intended to take out Saddam even BEFORE 9/11.
If Bush had access to this intelligence, now we know why.
Don't forget to forward it to all the bloggers that you know. Sometimes it's the "small" blogs that have the biggest punch. Also email this info to all of your friends and relatives. Put a link on your blog to jveritas' blogsite!
you are the new FR hero!
Just to make clear on the date format, that's DAY/MONTH/YEAR, right?
ping for later readinng
jveritas - spectacular
who have you made aware of this so far?
Have you pinged Tony Snow?
Shouldn't that be Rep Shays?
Thanks for the ping! :-)
I had not seen this.
I encourage freepers to e-mail this to Fox, Rush, Laura, etc. It wouldn't hurt to copy off the translations and send copies to your senators either. Or e-mail; we just need to make sure our legislators see this and start talking about the translations.
Thanks for the ping. I'm trying to figure out how we can push to make sure the translations gain some traction in the press.
******************AN EXCERPT *************************
One of the most contentious issues of the Iraq War is whether the invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein served as a distraction from the war on terror or as an integral part of the overall war itself. This is no mere academic question; the answer not only impacts the political future of those who supported and opposed the invasion, but also has real implications for the American resolve to stay in Iraq to see the effort through to completion.
A new document from the captured Iraqi files in Baghdad now appears to show that Saddam Hussein's regime not only had ties to al-Qaeda and financed terrorist efforts but also explicitly attempted to recruit people to attack American interests. According to Laurie Mylroie, page 6 of the document is a memo from the command of an Iraqi air force base asking for volunteers for suicide missions:
Translation of document as provided by JV
If this translation stands up to further scrutiny, it will provide a substantial answer to the question of Saddam's role in terrorism, both in general and specifically aimed at America. This memo will prove that Saddam had no intention of remaining neutralized in the region. He not only funded and encouraged terrorism, but he actively recruited terrorists from the ranks of his own military to carry out suicide attacks on American interests.
Obviously, the terror missions could not be conducted under the color of Iraqi military or get traced back to them, otherwise the American forces -- especially under George Bush -- would almost certainly attack Iraq with everything we could muster. Saddam would also not be able to rely on his clandestine partners on the Security Council to wield their vetoes, as even France and Russia would have to acknowledge the right of the US to defend itself once Saddam initiated this kind of attack. So how would he hide the nationality and identity of these volunteers? He would have to "launder" them through another organization, one that would not necessarily immediately point back to Iraq -- like al-Qaeda.
It's also interesting that the Iraqi air force asked for these volunteers. By April 2001, the 9/11 attackers had already been selected and the pilot training finished. It appears that Saddam may have had a similar operation in mind, but using already-trained pilots that could easily handle commercial jets for the purpose of crashing them into buildings. It has already been discovered that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed wanted to conduct another wave of suicide hijackings after 9/11 but stopped when security got tight. Could it be that KSM wasn't the one concerned about operational security -- and that Saddam himself pulled out of Phase II?
If this translation holds up, it provides answers and even more troubling questions about Saddam and his connections to terrorism targeted against us. It also shows what a dangerously dumb decision it was to leave Saddam in power and to fritter away a dozen years at the UN in a vain attempt to defang the viper.
This is from the Captain's Quarters Blog and is a major Blog in the Conservative side of the BlogoSphere..................
I really hope so.
Good news. We have got to find a way to push these until the MSM starts picking up the translations also. We really need some heavy duty activism.
Blogosphere is passing the story....see above....posts #234 & #235.
Did I miss it? Shame on both blogs for not givin credit to the translator!
I will translate and post more and more :)
If they sit long enough ....then the story will be ....why were they trying to hide the story?....
Our own Republicans need to use this information at least before election day or people will never hear what the press was hiding from them.
Thank you very much for doing this. If I may ask who is Debra Burlingame?
They are now treating JV as an official hard rock source...he has his own Blog....It's OK!
I know the feeling, I went to bed early last night and woke up very early...and said , no sense laying awake in bed, something likely is happening on FR......will catch up on my sleep latter.
God bless America.
