One of the few times I have listened to Ziegler and there you were. You are really good on Radio. Great job. Was glad to see you get involved with the issue right from the start. Looks like you are the right person at the right time in the right place. Lets hope we discover the answer to that $64,000 question. Hopefully it was just sloppiness or misguided internationalism.

So far I have been on Tony Snow Show, Bryan Suits Show from Seattle (Twice), Dave Ross Show from Seattle, and tonight on John Ziegler show.

News papers, I have been interviewed by the Boston Globe and the New York Times.

I have been interviewed by Pat Fish (Freeper Fishtalk) for an article posted on bloggcritics.com

I hope with Tony Snow as new White House Press Secretary things will turn around toward the best in the Public Opinion war.

It looks like KFI offers podcasts for registered listeners.

Not sure how soon this show will be available.

ROTFLMAO!

Me either, but then again I still have trouble retrieving the messages off my cell-phone.

Do you think maybe the little thingy attaching the pea to the pod is the eye?

I don't know that it would happen, but we can get the word out by calling reporters and talk shows to ask them to do interviews. Joseph needs a book or needs to do a webcast.

US puts Iraqi documents on the Web
Goal is to speed up translation of files

By Hiawatha Bray, Globe Staff | March 18, 2006

Joseph Shahda of Randolph earns his living as an engineer. But in his spare time, he's an intelligence agent, working to ferret out the truth about the regime of deposed Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein.

When the US government on Thursday began publishing captured Iraqi government documents on the Internet, Shahda eagerly began to translate the files into English and publish them on a conservative website.

''I feel a sense of duty," said Shahda, a native of Lebanon who supports President Bush's decision to invade Iraq. ''I think it's a duty for people who know Arabic to translate the documents."

US officials hope that thousands of other Arabic speakers feel the same. Goaded by Congress, Director of National Intelligence John Negroponte has begun to release millions of pages of captured files online in an unprecedented effort to harness the Internet to disseminate raw intelligence material. There, anybody with a knowledge of Arabic can download the files and translate them for the world.

It's the same ''open source" principle that drove the successful development of the Internet and of powerful free software like the Linux operating system. Instead of hiring a team of brilliant professionals to analyze Iraqi documents in secret, the open source systems will use hundreds of clever amateurs, who'll publish their work for anyone to analyze and improve upon.

''Workers control the means of production, but without all that tedious communism," said Glenn Reynolds, a law professor at the University of Tennessee and author of ''An Army of Davids," a book that shows how the Internet encourages public activism.

US intelligence officials say nearly all the documents released have been given at least a cursory reading by Arabic experts. Beth Marple, Negroponte's deputy press secretary, said amateur translators won't find any major surprises, such as proof Hussein hid stockpiles of chemical weapons.

Still, conservative bloggers, eager to bolster the case for going to war against Iraq, have long argued for release of the documents. They gained a powerful ally last month in Michigan Republican Pete Hoekstra, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. In an interview with blogger Andrew Marcus, Hoekstra called for Negroponte to release the documents online. ''Unleash the power of the Net," Hoekstra said. ''Let the blogosphere go." Kansas Republican Pat Roberts, chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, backed Hoekstra's proposal.

Within hours of the first release of documents, Shahda posted his first translation on the conservative website Free Republic. It was an Iraqi intelligence report of an interview with an Afghan informant that suggests -- but does not prove -- agents of Al Qaeda and the Taliban were active in Iraq before the Sept. 11 attacks.

According to an intelligence official who declined to be identified, Negroponte plans to release all documents that have no further intelligence value. Files that might help apprehend members of the Iraqi insurgency will remain under wraps. So will files that could violate the privacy or harm the reputations of innocent people. For instance, the Hussein regime used rape as a method of torture, and the government won't release documents containing the names of Iraqi rape victims. Nor will it release files mentioning Iraqi-Americans or other US citizens, such as journalists.

The remaining documents, the official said, will mainly provide insights into Hussein's rule. ''This stuff needs to be laid bare because it helps the democratic process in Iraq, like it did in South Africa, like it did in Germany," he said.

At least one Iraqi blogger agrees. ''We are currently trying to organize a network of bilingual Iraqi bloggers to translate as many of the documents as possible," said ''Omar," a Baghdad dentist who publishes IraqTheModel, which is widely read in the United States. Omar will not reveal his full name because his support for the overthrow of Saddam Hussein could put him in danger of death.

While conservative US bloggers, and some Iraqis, are eager to translate and read the Iraq documents, some prominent liberal bloggers scoffed at the release. ''To me, this is just more evidence that the Bush administration doesn't take national security seriously," wrote Markos Moulitsas Zúniga, founder of the popular Daily Kos website. ''Why doesn't our government have enough translators to handle this job?"

Jonathan Singer, weekend editor of the liberal site MyDD.com, was equally dismissive. ''The Hussein documents are not of great interest to me," said Singer, ''for the simple reason that they simply reinforce the notion that the Bush administration cherry picks intelligence to suit their needs."

The administration could have been pushing this w/o Tony Snow -- why aren't they?

The Bush administration doesn't seem to care if they are lied about. What they need to realize is that those lies hurt not only them, but our entire nation.

They seem to approach politics with the savvy of innocent children, and they're going to get us all killed in the process.

All right jveritas!

KFI AM radio in Los Angeles is the 5th rated radio station (Abritron 12+) in the 2nd largest radio market in the US. In other words, they have a large audience!

eyespysomething was using the computer last night and wouldn't move, but I stood over her shoulder and listened to you on the radio program.

You did a really great job. Your answers were precise and factual, no speculating or getting off track. I was really impressed and very proud of you.

You had the strength of conviction on your side and I am confident that those who were listening were able to understand that you're spreading the truth.

I laugh when I compare your calm, exact answers to Cindy Sheehan or some such "Bush lied" fool. Maybe Tony Snow should make you a deputy press secretary!

I agree on both counts.

Did anyone record your interview last night? I haven't heard any of your other interviews, but the one last night would be worth playing for people. The way you hit each of the points individually - links to terrorism, continued WMD interest/programs, nukes (the 50000 aluminum rods!) was perfect for allowing people to digest it all.

If you've still got your blog set up where you were posting the documents and Ziegler can give you the audio, maybe you should post it on the blog? I'd love to have a link to send to people who missed it but would like to hear it.
