My October 5th E-Mail to the IAEA Regarding Saddam Re-Constructing His Nuclear Program
November 3rd 2006 | jveritas

Posted on 11/03/2006 11:23:55 AM PST by jveritas

On October 5th 2006 I sent the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) an e-mail requesting some answers to the findings I got from the captured Iraqi documents regarding Saddam Regime re-constructing their prohibited nuclear program. The findings were about Saddam regime rebuilding and re-using some of their nuclear labs and facilities like the RWTS (Radioactive Waste Treatment Station), Radio-Chemistry Laboratories, and the Degussa Furnaces which are used to melt Uranium and other nuclear activities.

Of course I did not receive any response from the IAEA but here we go today and read in the New York Times article that the IAEA has complained recently about US captured documents showing some sensitive nuclear information. The IAEA and the New York Times did not care about the documents showing Saddam regime re-constructing its nuclear program because these documents expose all the lies that they have been spreading in the last three years but they are rather focusing on a small released portion of Iraq 1996 FFCD (Full Final and complete disclosure) that relates to Iraq previous nuclear program.

I am not sure if the IAEA was not aware, before I sent them the e-mail, that the captured Iraqi documents were posted on the FMSO website but it seems they have reacted just recently about these documents and their reaction unfortunately was not to show Saddam re-building his nuclear programs as many documents prove but rather to blame the Bush administration for publishing part of Iraq 1996 FFCD which by the way was not such a secret document as the IAEA is pretending since this FFCD has been reviewed by experts of “Members Nations” and thus it can be subjected to leak regardless.

Below is my E-mail to the IAEA on October 5th regarding documents that reveal Saddam re-constructing his nuclear program:

From: Shahda, Joseph

Sent: Thursday, October 05, 2006 10:26 PM

To: 'g.voigt@iaea.org'

Subject: Questions about Iraq (Saddam regime) Nuclear Activities/programs

Dear Sir/Madam

My name is Joseph Shahda from Abington Massachusetts, USA. I have been translating some of the Iraqi documents (Saddam Hussein regime) captured after the Operation Iraqi Freedom and that are posted on the US Foreign Military Intelligence Service (FMSO) website (http://70.168.46.200/). Some of the documents I have reviewed so far are related to potential nuclear program activities. I would like some clarifications if possible to help me more understand these documents.

(1) Was Iraq allowed to re-build its Radioactive Waste Treatment System (RWTS)?

(2) Was Iraq allowed to re-build its Radiochemistry Laboratories?

(3) Was Iraq allowed to fix and re-use furnaces or ovens from ex-nuclear facilities?

I greatly appreciate if you can reply to my questions above. Thank you very much for all your help.

Sincerely;

Joseph Shahda

Abington, Massachusetts

U.S.A

IAEA is disgusting and they are working to undermine President Bush of course in collaboration with liberals and their media like the New York Times.

thanks - it's important because the combination here is key:

1) Know-how & intent (these docs)

2) Available materials (the nuclear pre-cursors and other source materials - the other docs / press reports I've been unable to re-find)

3) Salman Pak (terrorist training camp used by Saddam's henchmen to train foreign terrorists with a ready-to-use train ala Spain bombings, a double decker bus ala London bombings, and jet plane fuesalage ala 9/11)

Have you ever seen this link:

http://www.iaea.org/worldatom/Programmes/ActionTeam/nwp2.html

This is the old INVO site run by the IAEA before the war.
You might find some interesting data to mine on the site (wink)

Also have a few more links in some of my old files:

If you need any research help, let me know!

Thank you jveritas. Hopefully this dopey "gotcha" attempt by the NYT and the IAEE will actually result in the end product of your hard work becoming a part of the public debate. The NYT has opened the door for this, and I hope your work is now analyzed and discussed outside of these forums.

They sure did. After dismissing these documents all along and consider them irrelevant now the New York Times want to take few document with the help of the IAEA to attack President Bush and forget the many more important documents that prove Saddam never stopped working on his WMD programs including the nuclear program.

You are very welcome. If you read it closely and then follow up on the 'detailed' reports the IAEA gave to the UN leading up to the war, you will find that it is full of lies and ommissions!

I know you are probably getting sick of answering fan mail, but you one of crown jewels of this place.

You will certainly go down in the FReeper Hall of Fame, just like Buckhead, TankerKC, and Howlin during RatherGate.

To your great credit, you stuck with us during the crisis in Lebanon, when, in the emotion of the hour, many people were saying injudicious things.

We will tell our children, "We knew this guy. He probably won't get the credit he is due. I can't remember his real name, but he changed the world"

So, in other words, someone at the IAEA blabbed to the NYT. Between the two of them they came up with the phony excuse that nuclear bomb building instructions were posted at the government site because it was obvious you were finding evidence the IAEA and the NYT didn't want you to find. It was a way to stop you and anyone else from translating the documents. The truth is not on the agenda of the NYT or the IAEA.

"Oooh, nice little tidbit:
“Some intelligence officials feared that individual documents, translated and interpreted by amateurs, would be used out of context to second-guess the intelligence agencies’ view that Mr. Hussein did not have unconventional weapons or substantive ties to Al Qaeda.”
But I thought the whole point of putting them up was to uncover that link? Since when was it the agencies view that Saddam didn’t have WMD’s or ties to Al Qaeda? The day after we attacked?

I think this is the story in a nutshell. They wanted to shut you and others up, Joe.

One thing this says is that once again, our intel underestimated an enemy. According to the paper of record, Saddam was just one year away from having a nuke. There were marches every year in my city against the sanctions, and they were slowly being eroded. It was just a matter of time. This shows me once again how needed the war was.

I am writing a paper for a class arguing that Saddam had WMD and a significant relationship with al-Qaeda. These Iraqi documents would be extremely helpful for my paper. Did you or anyone you know download/copy all the documents before the site shut down? It would be best for the purposes of my paper to have exactly what was on the site before it got shut down. The paper is due towards the beginning of January so I probaby can't wait till they come back up.

Another of the treasonous coverups by the Treason Media is being exposed. Imagine hiding knowledge from Americans of the intentions and actions of Saddam which endanger Americans. But enemity towards George Bush trumps any tendency to loyalty to the United States.

Can anyone recall such treasonous activities by Americans at any time or place in history as the Treason Media has perpetrated since 11/2000?
