"This is an interview conducted by freeper Chris Donohoe (April15bendovr) with freeper Joseph Shahda (jveritas) about Saddam regime WMD programs and their relations to terrorism based on his translations of some captured Saddam regime documents. Also he talks about some Al Qaeda-captured documents.
On the WMD issue, Joseph Shahda reveals that the documents clearly indicate that the Saddam regime opted to build the precursors required to make chemical weapons rather than the final chemical weapons product. They did this for two reasons. First because these precursors are dual-use materials and Saddam could always claim that they are used for civilian industries and not chemical weapons. Second the precursors have much longer shelf than the final product and when required it would only take the Saddam regime a few weeks and in some cases few days to assemble final chemical weapons products.
On the terrorism issue the documents prove that Saddam had much more relation with terrorism than previously thought. For example, some documents show that the Saddam regime had trained foreign terrorists from 1999-2003 and at the beginning of the war Saddam ordered his generals to treat the foreign terrorists as if they were special forces in the Iraqi army and to give them the same wages and benefits.
Also in the video Joseph Shahda talks about an authentic Al Qaeda document written by a top Al Qaeda leader called Saif Al Adel, which proves once and for all that Al Qaeda terrorists led by Zarqawi came to Iraq before the war and established terrorist cells not only in Northern Iraq but also in the Sunni areas in central Iraq that are totally controlled by Saddam. This clearly indicates that although we do not have proof of an operational relationship between the Saddam regime and Al Qaeda, it is an absolute fact that Saddam's regime turned a blind eye on the Al Qaeda presence in Iraq, operating under the old saying The enemy of my enemy is my friend.

april15bendovr & jveritas BUMP
It was great meeting with you and conducting this interview. Thank you very much for spreading the truth.
Thank you very much for this great compliment that you gave in the caption of the video but I would never consider myself a hero. The real heroes are our brave troops who are fighting for our freedom and our way of life.
I am just a translator and I only did my little duty during this time of war to reveal the the truth about Saddam terrorist regime and its WMD programs.
Again, thank you very much :)
I’m going to check this out as soon as I get back from church. Thanks for putting this together!
Threads of translated docs are also on jveritas’s freeper page:
Thank you both.
Your truth gives the support the troops need. It helps them to know that the cheerleaders for failure in Iraq cant win when the truth comes out.
Thank you for posting the link
Excellent work guys!
Thank you very much.
This would be my question:
The Pentagons statement after they closed down site stated that some of the Iraqi documents were used for counter intelligence. Meaning some of the documents are intently fake documents in order to throw us off. Due to some of them being faults documents the MSN has thrown out all of the documents as a source of information.
How would you respond to MSN reaction to these documents?
You know, I don’t think someone in Iraq would have been able to slip in some fake documents during to situation they were in to through off our intel do to the fact that we were bombing them.
Doesn’t that mean that it was someone on our inside that planted fake documents?
