Ray Robison, who has major work on the Harmony Database translation project is going to be posting less on his eponymous website Ray Robison. The reason is one to celebrate rather than mourn: he is writing a book on the translations. Follow the link above and leave a comment in the comments section, to show your support for seeing the book reach print. http://rayrobison.typepad.com/ray_robison/2006/05/announcement.html
Sounds interesting. I'll stay tuned.
put me down for three copies.
good luck on your new endevour.
Looking forward to reading it...
Then I'll just need your credit card number....hehehe
Unless you're going through all 48,000 boxes of information before you write the book, I'm guessing you're planning for a sequel?
bingo! that is important for getting a book published now a days...
Does this mean the documents won't be posted on FR as frequently either? Will you be holding back certain documents for the book and not posting them?
not to speak for jveritas, but we all agreed job one is getting the info out so we won't hold anything back for the book
I also want to see some video.
What you are all doing for our country deserves a book so your efforts may be appreciated by many.
thanks my friend! you freepers are the ones making it happen though.
Add my name to the list; I'll buy it in a heartbeat.
this is a great point, my intention was to make a companion DVD if there are any videos that provide value to the non-arabic speakers. I had put in a FOIA request to DIA for some videos last summer, and if that ever gets released, it may be in the book or sequals.
Personally, I appreciate that, though I'd have understood if your answer had been the opposite. If it were me and I found the in the documents the map that shows where the WMD are buried, I'd probably save that for the book ...
you could probably sell it to Fox for a million and not even have to write the book... LOL
On Hannity, Lifeguard Ted actually said that "We were told we would find nuclear weapons." The president did not say that.
This is EXCELLENT news!!!! Wishes of GREAT SUCCESS to all of you on this historic project!
I'd buy the book!
As much as we'd all like to run the collective nose of the liberals into the dirt, I hope that the book is NOT a "nah, nah, nah" type of book.
If fact, I'd like to see a book on these translated documents from the perspective of that there has never been political issues, but rather a straightforward book revealing what has been learned from the prewar documents.
Of course, some juicy "sound bite" type chapter headings in BIG BOLD FONTS would be effective in that that is the only depth of reading that liberals partake in.
Anyways, Congrats all around on this effort!
I'll buy a copy or two.
That would be a excellent valued-added endeavor.
You could come out with book one, then do a companion DVD to rekindle interest and prompt a press release/media time etc, and get folks primed for book 2 ;^)
Good idea DFU! An intro/preface of truth vs lies/dis & misinformation accompnied by some select lines from the documents would be very enlightening for alot of people. It would also provide very good sound bite/text blurbs for promo spots and media coverage/press release.
It's not so much rubbing anyone's nose in it- it's telling the TRUTH so the public can see who's really been doing the misleading. People are woefully ignorant and need their eyes opened. Besides, these are the questions people have wanted answered.
Wonderful news! Whatever you title your book, please call it "Volume 1".
I'll buy many copies to give away.
You missed my point. The book should NOT spend time discussing liberals nor Democrats. That would be a waste of effort and not the point of the discovery contained in the documents.
By just the fact that the book WILL link al-Qaeda and Saddam is enough on its own... plus many more facts. The IDIOTIC idea that Saddam would NOT deal with Jihad terrorists because he is secular will be blown out of the water.
Let the facts of the prewar documents speak for themselves. Look at how effective the movie "United 93" is without trying to slap the face of one side or the other.
Excellent! I think you should just run the translations. Very little commentary needed.
I'll even make my in-laws read it.
Good idea guys.
Let the truth come out!
Not at all. Any document of importance I will post first on this great Free Republic.
I'm looking forward to the book, but I'm glad we'll continue getting the first look at the documents.
Congratulations to you for this opportunity!
Include a downloadable version you can purchase also! And (I think Avacado suggested this) have dem quotes for the names of the chapters, and then have the docs that show them to be lying or just wrong as the basis for that chapter. Just for fun. But yes, I'd read it (but y'all didn't really have to ask me that, did you?).

Please add the keyword prewardocs to any articles pertaining to this subject.
Not yet :)
I need to get some new ones but I've been busy with this being the last week of school.
Such a project needs to 'compare and contrast' the lies and slanderous treachery of the democrat party leadership and the truth jveritas is uncovering. To merely publish the documents -if your intent is to get the truth to the American people- doesn't require a book. If you compare and contrast, put me down for a copy and any assistance in writing/editing I might be able to render.
Possibly the biggest mistake that could be made. This stuff must be made in documentary form that cannot be refuted by the MSM....it must set them back on their heals.
FOX's endorsement would only lend to ridicule and derision by all of the rest of the MSM....which, like it or not, is formidable!!
Any publication of a compilation of the Iraq Documents must be done with a "documentary tone" that virtually blows away the chattering classes ability to discredit it.
I envision a simultaneous release of a book and a DVD with supporting commentary from disinterested translators and from Iraqi witnesses willing to testify to the truth behind the document translations.
Yes, notify me when you need an official letter.
Lots of great suggestions on the thread, I also support contrasting the lies of the left in the project.
Why drag down this very important and historic work to the level of a Michael Moore slime fest? The documents speak for themselves.
If it's a tit-for-tat "you lied" type of book then even I am not interested in it.
