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...

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!

Curious that they would reposition and alert their people if it's a strike on Afghanistan.

Because Iraq had some of their people in Afghanistan?

Yes. The newspaper was a state-run, state-sanctioned newspaper and nothing was published without Saddam's approval either directly or through his henchmen.

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

Now why would Iraq expect an attack in response to 9/11? Unless...

Yeah, no kidding. Here's a little clue for those people out there who are still perplexed, or in denial:

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.

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.

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?

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.

Joseph,
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.

I try to do literal translation as much as possible and thus the translations may look weak in term of English grammar and composition.

Though Fox is on the right track, when they are on the air with this info, they and their spokesmen need to be more forceful and emphatic in presenting the evidence and interpreting its importance with respect to our attack and invasion of Iraq.

and isnt this why we hate CNN? Let the news programs be what they are.....JUST news programs and NOT cheerleaders for politicans

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.

Iraq was the only nation that didn't lower their flag at their UN mission in NYC after the 9/11 attacks. That was a red flag to me then and it is one of many I continue to feel today.

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.

JMO.

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.
