It's clear that someone at CIA (or maybe more than one someone) is trying to take down the administration, or at least trying to get them to back off of their CIA reform efforts.

Miller's reports from the field obviously supported the administration's WMD claims.

The CIA operative may have found it convenient to muddy the waters for the administration on outing Plame's (already known by the Russians) identity. Perhaps the administration let its guard down because she used to be an embed.

Plame is a red herring, so I wouldn't waste time on those threads, but it's interesting how Miller had history with the issue on the ground in Iraq.

It would be interesting to me to go back and look at jveritas' WMD translations that include the names of specific Iraqi officials and see what is available in terms of where those people are now.

What ever happened to that deck of cards of the most infamous Iraquis?

I have notified the "Waterbury Republican" (a suprisingly balanced Connecticut newspapaper) of your translation

I went looking for the people who signed this document. I'm probably not the greatest at digging stuff up like this, and I could not find any reference to the last two, but I did find this for the first one--one of the deck!

CNN LATE EDITION WITH WOLF BLITZER

Aired April 27, 2003 - 12:00 ET
THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.
WOLF BLITZER, CNN ANCHOR: It's noon in Washington, 9:00 a.m. in Los Angeles, 7:00 p.m. in Jerusalem, and 8:00 p.m. in Baghdad. Wherever you're watching from around the world, thanks for joining us for LATE EDITION.
We'll talk about the weapons hunt in Iraq with Dr. Mohamed ElBaradei in just a moment. We're also standing by to hear directly from the defense secretary, Donald Rumsfeld, and the Central Command commander, General Tommy Franks. They've spoken with reporters. We'll get to them shortly.

But first, let's check in with CNN reporters covering the latest developments in the new Iraq.

And let's go immediately to the Pentagon, where another Iraqi leader is reported to have been taken into custody. Let's get the latest from CNN's Patty Davis at the Pentagon -- Patty.

PATTY DAVIS, CNN CORRESPONDENT: Well, Wolf, he is the six of clubs on that U.S. deck of most wanted Iraqis. His name, Lieutenant General Husam Muhammed Amin Al-Yasin. U.S. Central Command not giving any details of his being taken into custody. And we saw General Amin on television many times prior to the war with Iraq. He was the liaison between Iraq and the United Nations weapons inspectors.

The big question, will he talk about Iraq's alleged chemical and biological weapons now that he is in custody?

http://www.desert-voice.net/war_on_saddam.htm

April 29,2003: Lt. Gen. Hossam Mohammed Amin, chief Iraqi liaison with U.N. weapons inspectors, was taken into coalition custody, the U.S. Central Command announced. Amin, the former Iraqi National Monitoring Director, was No. 49 on the most-wanted list and was captured near the town of Ramadi, west of Baghdad on the road that leads to Syria and Jordan.

Amin, also known as Hossem Mohammed Amin al-Yasin, was among the key figures in Saddam's weapons programs and would have detailed knowledge of any illegal armaments, if Iraq still posses them.

There was also this on a list of what the inspectors were doing each day before the war:

http://www.comw.org/pda/fulltext/030104inspectiraq.html

The inspectors have visited 230 sites since the resumption of inspections, 37 of which had not been previously checked by UN experts, the head of Iraq's National Monitoring Directorate, General Hossam Mohammad Amin, said Thursday. Reiterating that Iraq has no prohibited weapons, Amin said Blix, who heads UNMOVIC, would arrive in Baghdad in the third week of January, but there was no exact date for the visit.

I also found this one on another site but there was no source listed for the article:

General. Hossam Mohammed Amin said he saw nothing to justify the criticisms expressed last week by chief UN inspector Hans Blix and Mohamed El-Baradei, head of the International Atomic Energy Agency.

I have bunch of e-mails that I got from another thread recently. And I think it was from your post. Thanks.

Most of these were provided by Peach so you probably got them from her post. Just so they get out, that's what's important.

There seem to be some that are sending to many different outlets. It sure seems like it's more positive than when jveritas started. Looks like it's catching on. Had one post that cautioned against making the contacts look like spam. Do you think it could be a problem?

I don't think it's a problem. Did someone say that to you?

I think it was just a caution, check #38.

Hmm - I don't see it in #38. Regardless, I don't think it's a problem if on each of these threads we post the links.

Thanks for finding that, jazusamo.

I'm not positive what the freeper was referring to but do sort of remember that MoveOn and other organizations like that sent out mass mailings and that routinely ignored as spam.

When I send stuff to the media, I send it to them directly. In other words, I don't send it to a whole slew of them at once. I know it takes more time that way and am not certain it's the best way or makes a difference.

Maybe you could freepmail that freeper and he'd correspond with you and give you more information. If he does, please share it with me, if you don't mind.

Thanks for all you're doing, jazusamo. I appreciate it very much and think that it represents the best of Free Republic. Activism.

That looks like a pretty good letter to send out.

I do have one suggestion though. You may want to add that jveritas puts a link to the originals in each of his translations. That way they can get to the posting of the original document, and not just get a translation that they have no way of verifying.

"There's an old trick in the media circle that usually works in getting the word out, target small outlets, local newspapers and local news, and then the MSM can't take not being the head honcho and will follow. Look at the Cheney Accidental Shooting."

I was thinking the same thing the other day, so I have started doing that for the small town newspapers in the state of Kansas.

I urge others to do the same in their state.

It'll work but it takes a lot more effort and once one gets published it really opens the gates.
