Due to space constraints, I was not able to really cite thoroughly each document, but only mention it in passing in order to at least give readers some basic idea of where to look for what I was referencing. However, they are all available at jveritas' home page right here on FR.

Good article. FR and jveritas will be getting some hits from it.
Slowly but surely the truth comes out. Thanks!
Saddam Memos Called 'Old News' by Major Media
Top secret memos captured by U.S. troops during the invasion of Iraq in 2003, but declassified and released only in the last month, reveal both a linkage between Iraq and al-Qaeda for the purpose of launching attacks against the common enemy--the United States--and the presence of weapons of mass destruction.
This stunning revelation has been ignored by the major U.S. media outlets because it is considered "old news."
"Look, these documents were captured three years ago," said Bob Weaver, Middle East editor for CBS News. "In our business, three-day old news is passé. Three years is ancient history. Our viewers need to be presented with fresh, up-to-the-minute news, not this old crap."
Weaver admitted that he couldn't reconcile his perspective with the network's efforts to dig out President Bush's 1968 National Guard service records during the 2004 election campaign. "I admit it seems contrary to our demand for news freshness, but domestic politics are not part of my beat," said Weaver. "I'm sure Rather had good reasons for delving into that issue. We've just got to take that on faith."
While less vocal about their stance, other major media outlets are also ignoring the memos.

"I wrote this column for my college newspaper. I hope it helps shed some more light on the Iraqi documents coming out at present. "
I seen absolutely ZERO!!! mention of these truly astounding revelations in any of the Big Media outlets. Even Fox News has not exactly trumpeted these Bush-vindicating releases. In fact many Big Media outlets like Chris Matthews still treat pariahs like Joe Wilson as truth-tellers. It's like living in a Bizarro World...thanks to the American media.
If someone gave that lying skunk Weaver a lie-detector test, I'll bet the needle would break the machine it would be oscillating so wildly. That's just a bald-faced lie he told. Of course libs care about "old" news...if it shines a bad light on conservatives. The fact is these revelations exculpate Bush, and slime like Weaver know that...but they can't admit it. It means they were wrong about Bush and the war. Admitting they were wrong would destroy the illusion they have of themselves. So admitting the truth is something libs can never do. It would kill the leftist dream.
liberals are the most religious people I know.
Good luck putting this in a school paper. Please tell us what the religious libs vandalize.
Great column! Thank you. Every bit of truth that gets told is a miracle.
So predictable. 'Old news, nothing but crap. Rather had good reasons for what he did'. Goebbels would be proud.
GOOD job rw!
Be sure to send a copy to Chris Matthews:)
Excellent job. Thank you very much for getting the truth out on these very important documents.
