Skip to comments.Saddam Targeted American Assets For Terrorism: Case Closed Jveritas translation confirmed ....
Posted on 04/08/2006 11:12:43 PM PDT by Ernest_at_the_Beach
A few days ago, I posted a translation of a document culled from the captured Iraqi documents that the US found during Operation Iraqi Freedom. This particular memo, dated March 17, 2001, comes from a brigadier general in the Iraqi Air Force and requests a list of volunteers from all units under his command for suicide attackers. The memo explicitly explains the targets for these terrorist attacks, as the original translation from Joseph Shahda shows:
The top secret letter 2205 of the Military Branch of Al Qadisya on 4/3/2001 announced by the top secret letter 246 from the Command of the military sector of Zi Kar on 8/3/2001 announced to us by the top secret letter 154 from the Command of Ali Military Division on 10/3/2001 we ask to provide that Division with the names of those who desire to volunteer for Suicide Mission to liberate Palestine and to strike American Interests and according what is shown below to please review and inform us.
When I posted this document, readers of this blog questioned the accuracy of the translation. People know that Joseph translated this for Free Republic, a strongly pro-war website, and that it was distributed by Laurie Mylroie, another pro-war commentator. Skeptics felt that this pedigree lent itself to a possibly warped interpretation of the memo. While the accuracy of the translation remained in question, the actual text -- which showed an active Iraqi terror program aimed at Americans -- would not get the attention it deserved.
In order to solve this problem, I decided to hire two Arabic translators on my own.

We are not strongly 'pro-war'. We are strongly 'pro-American'. Both Iraq and Iran were threats to American Interests. If you don't believe that, just translate the Iraqi documents and/or listen to the words coming out of the President of Iran's mouth. IMHO.
I didn't mean pro-war as an insult; FR has strongly supported the Iraq war, and that's all I meant.
Can you believe it's taken me this long to finally get a login?
1000 thanks yous Captain for going the extra mile!
Thanks for dropping by....we deeply appreciate what tremendous Good you are doing with your Blog!!!
...hey, there we go. We need Saddam to be found innocent, then move to York Neuvo, live for six months, gain voting rights, then run for Senate Against Hillary. Maybe then the American left will treat these people as enemies...
Now that we have established the translation of the memo from the Iraqi Air Force general to all units requesting volunteers for suicide missions against American "interests", the timing of the memo appears to fit into a disturbing sequence in the months prior to 9/11. This memo is dated March 17, 2001, less than six months prior to the coordinated al-Qaeda attack on the US, at a time when the AQ plotters and pilots appeared to be in close proximity to Iraqi intelligence agents in Europe.

Welcome Aboard, Skipper!
You wouldn't happen to be the same Capt. I reported..."Good Morning Captain. The Officer of the Deck sends his respects and wishes to report the hour of 0800......"?
Thanks for presenting CQ to the Web.
Yep and thank you Ernest for the ping.
I appreciate it.
ON THE NET...
These Docs help, but the Libs and Media will continue to Disbelieve in thier existence, unless WE start shouting...
In the end, disproving "The Great Liberal Lie" boils down to getting Wilson's Deposition UNDER OATH in the Libby trial...
You da man! I love your website. I didn't say "blog" because I didn't want to offend you. :D
Couldn't have said it better myself!
However, now that the information is established, we can certainly work to shove it down the Lamestream Media's throat until they do acknowledge it.
Seems like Tony Snow, Mark Levin and Brit Hume may be able to help kickstart this effort; they're not blinkered media folks.
I, for one, would absolutely love to watch Perky Katie be cornered into reporting this; her scowl would be reason enough for me to watch the See,BS! Evening Snooz for the first time since the Challenger blew up.
Be sure and read Captain Ed's comments linked at #28!
Isn't it fair to say, compared to Saddam, that the Serbs weren't much of a threat to anyone? Where was all the fuss about Dill & sHrillary's lies?
Thought you might be interested in this.
Welcome, "officially", and thanks for spreading these revelations.
