Just to clarify, noteable quotes of the media and leading politicians will be used, but not in a michael moore (ick) kind of fashion. Thier own words can be contrasted against the documents to show their failures, without using name calling.

the level of a Michael Moore slime fest?

Where did I advocate that? I believe the facts out of the pre-war docs can be illustrated in juxtaposition to the lies and statements of the left in a manner that isn't Moore-esque. And to do so is reasonable and just, IMO.

Okay...as long as that is not the core of the book. I also think the INTRO should briefly cover the 12 years of 17 breached UNSCRs for disarmament obligations and the subsequent UNSCR 1441 which Saddam failed to comply with. See:

http://www.un.org/apps/news/infocusnewsiraq.asp?NewsID=354&sID=6

THE SECURITY COUNCIL, 27 JANUARY 2003:
AN UPDATE ON INSPECTION
Executive Chairman of UNMOVIC, Dr. Hans Blix

Saddam failed UNSCR 1441 on "Cooperation of Substance" and "Cooperation of Process" according to Dr. Hans Blix.

The "left" needs to be reminded that the Iraq War is about the noncompliance of the disarmament UNSCRs and his failure to comply.

I would also probably note that regime change and democracy for Iraq supported via a proxy war has been U.S. law since 1998 in the "Iraq Liberation Act of 1998" (HR 4655).

Don't get caught up in the "left's" argument for a smoking gun. It was never about a smoking gun. It was about the threat of 12 years of noncompliance by a brutal regime with a PROVEN history of using WMD against innocent civilians. I ask please to not chase the left's tail. It will get you nowhere.

Best of luck to you guys. I have spoken with Jveritas in private and I have all the confidence in the world that your efforts will be a success!

You didn't advocate that. I said it to make sure that this is not where the book goes. It would be tragic if that is all that the book amounted to -- ala Michael Moore style.

I want more than anyone to smack those nitwitted liberals all over the place but this book is not the place to do it.

The documents are not about liberals or Republicans, they are about Saddam and his regime.

The documents are not about liberals or Republicans, they are about Saddam and his regime.

Will agree with the latter but not the former point, at least to a degree. The left has done nothing but deny the ties between Saddam and AQ, Saddam and his WMD, Saddam and his evil deeds. All for no other reason than because they don't happen to be in power (thank God) at the time the crisis came to a head.

They embolden the jihadi's with their shenanigans to the point of giving aid and comfort to the enemy.

I don't want to take anything away from the translations, nor make this a primarily politically focused us/them endeavor. But to omit the very pertinent context of the facts, vs. the intentional political subterfuge of the Democrats and media leaves a gaping hole in the "story" and doesn't give the reader a complete picture, IMO.

Regardless, I support the project and the authors and will respect their good judgements and decisions on the matter. Bump!

Ditto that! Unveiling Saddam is worth every bit of time and effort. The world needs to know the truth.

...but don't you think that can be acheived without the mention of liberals or Democrats or what they think or thought or said? For example, the following chapter titles should do the trick:

Saddam Regime Financially Supports al-Qaeda

Osama group and Taliban meet in Iraq right before 9/11

Secular Saddam in Arrangements with Jihadist Groups

I am not suggesting those very titles but they are examples of letting the documents speak for themselves. There is no need to mention liberals or Democrats. The truth will set those fools on their collective asses.

I have been watching very closely to all reactions from the left to the translated documents and they either a) ignore them, b) suggest they might not be real. In no such instances has the left attempted to take on their contents.

That should tell you something that they are unwilling to take on the contents of the documents. That is where the strength lies in those documents - their contents. And that is what you FIGHT those bastards with!

Going tit-for-tat and saying that they lied will just result in a distraction from the contents of the documents. AND THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT THEY WANT!

Do NOT feed into that game. It's their game and they will win it! Just let the documents speak for themselves. That is what they fear most -- the contents. And that is the strength of the documents!

It's just my opinion but it is how I feel very deeply about this issue. Don't feed into their game. You'll lose!

Count me in for multiple copies.

I'd love to see translations juxtaposed with an assortment of quotes from media, pols, and pundits on WMD, terror, Al Qaeda connections, etc.

I just had the privilege of speaking with Kim Weissman and he gave me your username to watch and read.
I don't know if you know him, but he apparently has heard of you or knows you.
I consider him to be exceedingly wise and eminently readable and will follow his advice and read your words too.
Thanks for all you do,
S.
