I wrote this column for my college newspaper. I hope it helps shed some more light on the Iraqi documents coming out at present. One point I really want to emphasize is that even if Saddam's regime did not actually carry out the recommendation to train suicide bombers with Iraqi cash, Saddam did at least PAY them equal to regular military units, showing he did support the terrorists, the very insurgents we are now fighting.

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.

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.

Great job, RW. JVeritas has done some excellent work, too! How does the truth get out to the masses who believe in ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, etc... when the TRUTH is anathema to this Not Yet Extinct Media? The word IS getting out, but has anyone heard it from any of the NYEM? They really do remind me of Baghdad Bob!

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.

conventional wisdom?

If this comes from the Left, I would hardly call it 'wisdom'!
