    Washington Times ^ | March 3, 2009 | Tony Blankley
    ...... George W. Bush didn't lie about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. He was merely mistaken. Whereas President Obama told a whopper last week when he claimed he was not for bigger government ......... [Obama]: "We have already identified $2 trillion in savings over the next decade." But, lamentably, a few days later, The Washington Post reported: "A senior administration official acknowledged yesterday that the budget does not contain $2 trillion in spending cuts over the next decade. Instead, the figure represents Obama's total efforts at deficit reduction, including tax hikes [of more than $1 trillion] on families making...
  • Mystery Deepens Over WMD Documents

    How the classified military documents from Iraq, which named the coordinates of where the Army suspected weapons of mass destruction to be hidden, ended up in an Arabic translator's apartment on Hoyt Street in Brooklyn, is clear. Not likely to be known anytime soon is what, if anything, the army contractor did with the documents. The U.S. attorney's office in Brooklyn, which is prosecuting the case, appears to have little direct evidence that Noureddine Malki passed information on to the insurgency, either during his time in Iraq in 2003 and 2004, or upon his return to America in 2005. But...

  • Iraq docs show U.S. right on war

    In the conventional wisdom, it is now believed that Saddam Hussein did not have weapons of mass destruction when the U.S. invaded three years ago, nor did he have ties to terrorism. If a massive collection of recently-declassified Iraqi government documents provides truthful insight into Saddam’s regime, this conventional wisdom is completely wrong, and war was justified. The task of translating the vast trove of documents – millions of pages of Arabic text – has largely fallen into private hands. Several of the documents point to ties between Al Qaeda and Iraq, as well as terrorist ambitions by Iraq not...
  • Iraq Translated Document - IIS Top Secret doc proves intent to hide prohibited items from UN

    Ray: Proving intent. Some would believe (or at least claim to believe) that Saddam wanted to comply with UN mandates to get the sanctions removed. This document shows without a doubt (unless proven inauthentic) that this is not the case. The IIS demonstrates that not only is it procuring prohibited items but providing secret facilities to hide them from the UN. I also believe that this demonstrates proof that Iraq did hide prohibited items from the UN which were not found. I have seen nothing about these computers in UN reports. Please let me know if anyone finds a reference...
  • New PreWarDoc fits with Gwynne Roberts article about Iraqi nuclear test

    Fitting the pieces together In February 2001, the Sunday Times ran the article Was this Saddam’s Bomb by Gwynne Roberts. I couldn't find the original but it is also on . I only recently read this article and found it interesting but very hard to believe. One of the newly released documents CMPC-2003-015757 contains the Roberts' article in English. This is the first time I have seen it. I did some research and found no serious academic or professional rebuttals other than people who also found it hard to believe. However, it seems that supporting evidence has been right...

    - The IIS activity covers many countries in the Middle East and their contacts reach the US, Canada, Europe and Russia. - Other documents contain a paragraph mentioning that Iraq is buying off opposition parties in Russia. - In this first post I will translate parts of a document giving guidelines for work and assessing the progress of contact recruitments in Europe and the US. - In a later post a document will show Iraq’s efforts to send agents into Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. - Before you start reading ask yourself: Are so called “Peace Activists” considered as non governmental...

    Ray: Sammi provides a partial translation of a notebook that appears to be from an Iraqi connected with the former SSO. The Center for Non-Proliferation Studies describes the SSO: If authentic, this document helps to establish the role that Syria played with Iraq as an arms provider. A lot of people may not realize this but Syria provided Iraq with many conventional munitions before the Gulf War and after. It is a little easier to accept the "Mission Impossible" sounding plot that Saddam moved remaining WMD to Syria if you realize they were sneaking weapons across the border all the...

    Iraq VP and Taliban representative meeting II "Both in One Trench" ISGP-2003-00014127 Ray: Sammi provides us with a follow up meeting between a Pakistani cleric and the Vice President of Iraq. The main topic is establishment of a secret relationship between the Taliban and Iraq through Iraqi Intelligence apparatus for the purpose of assisting each other against the United States. Context: before the Taliban took full control of Kandahar, there were several factions fighting to gain power. There is another document at the FMSO website in which Saddam and his ministers discuss Afghanistan and how the different factions are vying...
  • The Case For Iraq's WMDs, Al Qaeda Connections, And Russian Involvement

    I've set out to create a sort of information clearinghouse of post-war information on Iraq's WMDs, ties to terror groups, ties to Al Qaeda in particular, Russia providing aide to Saddam, etc. I wanted to have post with a lot of background so as newly released documents continue to roll in and get translated and liberals whine "so what, this is just one document", we can always link back to this post or find older links in it. It started out mainly just for my personal use, for when I post on developments as they come, I will always link...

    The Weekly Standard ^ | 03/13/2006 | by Stephen F. Hayes
    The Bush administration has decided to release most of the documents captured in post-war Afghanistan and Iraq. The details of the document release are still being worked out, according to officials with knowledge of the discussions. Those details are critical. At issue are things like the timeframe for releasing the documents, the mechanism for scrubbing documents for sensitive information, and most important, the criteria for withholding documents from the public. But some of the captured files should be available to the public and journalists within weeks if not days. President George W. Bush has made clear in recent weeks his...

    The Weekly Standard. ^ | 01/21/2006 | Stephen F. Hayes
    MORE THAN TWO MONTHS AGO, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Pete Hoekstra requested 40 documents captured in postwar Iraq as he sought better understand the activities of the Iraqi regime in the months and years before the U.S. invasion in March 2003. On Friday afternoon, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence finally provided 39 of the 40 documents Hoekstra had requested. I had been seeking the same documents. For more than five months I pestered Department of Defense public affairs staff to see them. I provided titles to the Pentagon staff and, eventually, filed a Freedom of Information Act...

    Stuart A. Cohen, who has been with the CIA for 30 years, was acting chairman of the National Intelligence Council when the 2002 National Intelligence Estimate on Iraq's weapons of mass destruction was published. The National Intelligence Estimate of October 2002 concerning Iraq's weapons of mass destruction has been dissected like no other product in the history of the U.S. intelligence community. We have reexamined every phrase, line, sentence, judgment and alternative view in this 90-page document and have traced their genesis completely. I believed at the time that the estimate was approved for publication, and I still believe now,...
