Our country's citizens owe you so much JVeritas! Thank you so much for the work you are doing translating these documents...
yup, it was me, first time on TV, hope I didnt look like a complete ass LOL
Re#52 Yep. I recall an article back where the Ruskies bought some sarin warheads after the fall of Saddam to get them off the street. Methinks Syria's got the "stockpiles" (because some WMDs have been found) and they know we know and know further that if any get out, they will pay in a big way. Time will tell...
"yup, it was me, first time on TV, hope I didnt look like a complete ass LOL"
I saw you and you came across very well. I was happy to see the documents being talked about on national TV. Slowly but surely the translated documents are reaching a wider audience. That is 100% good!
Good job! And thanks for the effort of moving the docs forward!
thanks very much, more stuff is coming up, these docs are finally getting the attention they deserve
Because Iraq had some of their people in Afghanistan?
Congratulations! Again. Will we have video available?
Wasn't one of Saddam's sons running this newspaper?
Ray, I don't think we can possibly convey how important this is what you are doing. I know that what you are doing means a LOT to me.
Yes. The newspaper was a state-run, state-sanctioned newspaper and nothing was published without Saddam's approval either directly or through his henchmen.
Hmmm...that is something I have never heard before. How did Steven Reeve get this information?
I believe that's a possibility and they thought maybe we knew it and would attack them also? I don't know, there are many possibles I guess.
The author is Simon Reeve and I'd have to take the book out of the library again and see what his source was.
Fitz Hollings read it on the floor of the Senate.
I'm sure we were monitoring their newspapers since they were all state-run and state sponsored.
There has got to be a better translation available. I know Arabic is a nebulous round about language, but there have to be folks at the Army's Foreign Language school who can do a better job than this
Yeah, no kidding. Here's a little clue for those people out there who are still perplexed, or in denial:
I think we need to research this one.
Hey Mark, thanks, I want to watch it and make sure it is not as horrible as it felt when I was doing the interview, if it is okay, I am going to try and post it on my site, maybe this weekend
The more I read the documents the more I suspect that the WMD or Precursors of the WMD were buried in the Anbar Province in the Desert West.
That is the Western Desert.
Thank you very much, I am honored by your praise :)
I try the best I can.
Ray Robison. See here:
I'll take your take on this. Time will tell.
That said, thanks for all you are doing with these documents, jveritas. You are doing a great service for your country (and this site). A thousand kudos and continuing thanks....
Awwwgg! What can I say; I called it as I saw it. Good for a first time interview on a national news network, but more practice (which I'm sure you'll get!) will make it better.
FR refresher point for CD: Watch what you say on here. You never know who may be a FReeper!
Can we get a response on this from the so-called 9/11 commission? This needs to be thoroughly investigated and should become a lead news story. Your hard work is much appreciated. Where does it go from here?
Great information. Proving once again why those who want to be informed, visit FreeRepublic.
The 9-11 commission primarily did what lumbering bureaucratic bodies do best for this type of thing. Present a legal case against those that could be "proven guilty beyond a shadow of a doubt."
Law enforcement meant to PUNISH, not prevent.
Thanks. I think to get the word out we need to have more media attention, and of course the administration must be supporting this as well.
Thank you, Jveritas.
The case will be best presented when there is a critical mass to push out all at once.
Not only is there information in those documents that will fill a ton of gaps that we (the public) don't know what was happening.
The information is there, it needs to be overwhelming, organized and then presented properly and pushed hard to our fellow bloggers and friendly media outlets.
If you did this yourself from the original Arabic then you have my sincere apologies for my comment. My thoughts were directed to those websites that publish supposed translations of Arabic, particularly, only to have it sound like literal translations of Japanese instructions for VCRs 25 years ago. If the translation was yours then best is to be appreciated.
The translation is mine and so all other translations I posted so far on FreeRepublic, you can look it up on my FR profile page :)
I try to do literal translation as much as possible and thus the translations may look weak in term of English grammar and composition.
Agreed 100% and you are doing a great job in getting these documents out to the public.
You have no idea who jveritas is, do you?
Do a little research.
and isnt this why we hate CNN? Let the news programs be what they are.....JUST news programs and NOT cheerleaders for politicans
Anytime shield :)
Ouch! Though I phrased it incorrectly, I meant spokesman for our side and the truth. Too often, they are not as polished or forceful like the representative of the left.
Having said that, this was the first TV appearance by the spokesman who presented the information and he did well given that fact.
Gee, ya think Saddam knew we would consider 911 an act of war? Ya think he might have been in on it ? DUH!
gotcha, sorry about that, I thought you were going another direction with your comment.
I've said it before and I'll say it again:
I truly believe 9/11 was a contract hit. Osama delivered the plan and the personnel while Saddam provided the diplomatic cover for money transfers and documents, and perhaps diplomatic papers allowing for passage of the perps.
We need to start organizing a time-line on these docs and including other known information like the Iraq Perspectives Project, Stephen Hayes etc. so we can get a better idea of how things fit together. A Freeper, named piasa also has extensive chronology on what was happening in Iraq according to the media over a number of years. I think it might be a little difficult for some to grasp the significance of some of these documents without a meaningful context. Once a basic time-line is established, new documents can be inserted into it.
