Posted on 04/09/2006 10:19:52 AM PDT by jveritas
Pages 99 to129 of document CMPC-2003-00013038 dated in March 1997, many years after Saddam was supposed to fully comply with the UN resolutions to disarm his WMD and reveal everything to the UN inspectors, include many correspondences from the Iraqi intelligence service asking their employees not to store any information related to WMD and remove any information they have regarding WMD from their computers and records. This is yet another document that shows how Saddam Regime was doing all their efforts to hide their WMD programs or any information relate to it from the UN inspectors, a clear sign that this regime never really complied and they always wanted to keep their WMD programs and production.
Beginning of Translation of Page 107:
I am the signatory below, I pledge not to store any information related to the Prohibited Weapons on any computer that we have installed and evacuate the related numbered magnetic discs to outside the location. And for this I sign
Name: Issam Shaker
Position: Director of Administration in the Fourth Directory
Directory: The Forth Directory
End of translation of Page 107
In the document, there are many letters with the same text as in page 107 signed by other employees of the Iraqi intelligence service.
Beginning of the Translation of Page 115:
A visit was made to the Computer Center of the Third Directory Storage and search it and inform the person who is directly in charge of it to remove all the information related to the Prohibited Matters and what is related to the committees of inspection and industrialization and that he will be held responsible for this.
End of translation of Page 115
In the document, there are many letters with the same text as in page 115 that inform different departments in the Iraqi intelligence service to remove all the information related to WMD.
So now we know that hiding the weapons of mass destruction is historically as important as the mass part and the destruction part. From now on we shouldnt call them weapons of mass destruction, we should call them the HIDDEN WMD. Or just HWMD.
Jevritas, that sentence in itself is another smoking gun!
Old Hansi working on his retirement funds?
Be patient....time is on our side!
The "magnetic disks" could just be the translation for a regular hard drive. The hard drive of all computers store their data magnetically. (its all just ones and zeros).
Just as these documents are now reveiling the secrets of Saddams plans, their computer hard drives hold even more secrets. I would bet that the NSA or some such agency is hard at work or have already completed searching the hard drives of a lot of computers that were siezed when we rolled into Bahgdad. Deleteing the data doesnt make it go completly away. Unless they used special software to scrub these drives clean, no matter how much other stuff was written over the deleted data, it can still be recovered and put back together.
You are doing outstanding work here. Do you have a ping list for this stuff?
I hope I'm not the first to inform you guys of this.
This is more than a smoking guy.... in my opinion.
time to watch the Masters.............
One more quick ping to posts #70 and #71
#70 - I was informed about the subject of the information that the search teams from the United Nations are searching for, and it was removed from our computers.
#71 - CQ reader Sapper sends along a new document from the captured files of the Saddam Hussein regime, one that had just been released on Friday, that has notations indicating where WMD stockpiles might be found. The information on the memo has not been translated but the notations themselves sound breathtaking:
Please see Iraqi map to locate Al-Rasheed area on this page important information that the Iraqi regime has Transported the chemical and biological weapons to al-Rashad area, and pronounced a Military Prohibited area
this area is completely covered with trees & bushes
This should be screamed from every American rooftop along with being shoved down the throats of the prickass DUer's, MSM/Dems, Bush Haters, and those podunck irrelevant towns in Vermont who voted to impeachment Bush.
To all those in the MSM that perpetuate the "Bush Lied" mantra...Go pound sand!
Because WE, Rush, and Foxnews will do a better job than the Bush adm. ever could!
In 1998 John Kerry was on tv making the case for a possible future war against Saddam Hussein (over WMDs). The left has said that they were destroyed before we went to war in 2003 (with the implication that they were destroyed while Bill Clinton was still in office).
So that means that between 1998 and Dec 2000, they were "destroyed". This 1997 purging of information won't persuade the ostriches on the Left who prefer to keep their heads buried in the sand.
It seems that is not an Iraqi regime document but rather a document by an opposition group since they call Saddam Iraqi government as "The Ruling regime". There are no signatures, or no names attached to the document. I do not think that Saddam regime will themselves the "Ruling Regime". Anyway it is important to investigate where did this come from.
Beginning of the translation:
The transportation of Chemical Weapons to the Al Rahed Region
The ruling regime transported in the beginning of this month the Chemical and Biological Weapons to Al Rashed region where he declared it a military zone that is prohibited to visit. This region is covered by heavy trees and vineyards..

Thank you Delta :)
You are right. We can make them all eat their words. At the very minimum, all of should make sure our family, neighbors, friends, co-workers are informed of this.
Some of them in turn will tell others and so on.
It is best too to swarm the internet sites, bloggers, write our newspapers, call or email our elected officials, etc.
Lets become annoying to them all. How did the dems convince the world that Bush lied? By repeating it and repeating it.
We can do the same. The squeeky wheel actually does get the grease.
I like it: Hidden WMD :)
I print out all of jveritas' translations and pass them out to the people in my office.
We have a big-time anti-war lib working with us, and in light of the documents he now can only quote Buddha to me.
Which had this:
The use or misuse of large-scale industrial facilities is only part of the problem. The testimony of a number of defectors, including civil engineers and military officers, suggests that the regime is continuing to disperse biological, chemical, and nuclear facilities in or under civilian sites such as residences, downtown buildings, and some of the more than 40 palaces and luxury residences built for Saddam and his retinue. These are the types of facilities that UNSCOM was unable to investigate before being ordered to leave Iraq.
One defector, Saeed al-Haideri, has described biological and chemical sites located in government companies and private villas even beneath Saddam Hussein Hospital in Baghdad.
Specifically, al-Haideri has alleged that two so-called presidential sites in Radwaniya from which Iraqi authorities barred U.N. inspectors in 1997 contained sealed, airtight, underground structures build by a Yugoslav company.
IRAQ: Infrastructure continues to improve in Al-Rasheed
RADWANIYA, Iraq - Coalition forces along with Iraqi leaders completed a road project that spans more than four kilometers and cost about $565,000.
Radwaniya is a neighborhood located in the district of Al Rasheed.
The paving of the Hamourabi village road is great for the community, said Capt. Christian Neels, 3rd Battalion, 7th Infantry Regiment civil-military operations officer, and native of Muscatine, Iowa. The completion of the road will offer a quicker means of allowing farmers and the local population to get to the market and in the long run, contribute to the economic progress of the area.
Neels added that unemployment in the surrounding towns of Musafer and the Hey Al Askari area is high. With few jobs available in the community, the roadway will allow the population to get into Baghdad where employment opportunities are greater.
Soldiers from 1st Battalion, 21st Field Artillery, 1st Cavalry Division initially proposed the project to provide easier access for farmers and the local population to get to the market and to operate their vehicles after rains. Prior to the paving of the roadway, civilian traffic was severely restricted by the mud roads and the adjacent canal.
After the transition of authority between 1st Cav. Div. and 3rd Inf. Div. in February, 3/7 Inf. inherited the project and worked closely with Sheikh Ali Muttar, the Radwaniya Neighborhood Advisory Council chairman, Neels said.
Sheikh Ali has overseen other infrastructure improvement projects in the Radwaniya neighborhood.
A 3,000 meter waterline that runs alongside the Hamourabi Road was built and works in conjunction with two water towers in the area, said Sheikh Ali.
The two water towers in Hey Al Askari and Al Musafer have the potential of providing drinking water for at least 7,000 people, he said.
He also said that before the water project can be accepted by the Municipality of Baghdad, the local contractor must make some modifications.
Although the Radwaniya area now falls under the control of 3rd Squadron, 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment, the Soldiers of 3/7 Inf. keep in touch with the progress of Sheikh Ali and his community.
Continuing roadway and water improvements and establishing long-term employment of the local population in our sector will continue to be our emphasis, Neels said.

We need a MAP....
Thanks for the update on the "Al Rahed" document.
Sounds like you are right, that it is an opposition group that has written this.
Could it be documents captured by the Iraqi regime before the invasion?
Just want to add my voice to all the others who've thanked you for your excellent work!
Thank you. That is how a revolution starts. One ranger one riot. I say one Freeper (jveritas) can make history. God speed.
