Are Put on Web, and Search Is On – Scott Shane
Director of National
Intelligence John D. Negroponte has begun a yearlong process of posting on the
Web 48,000 boxes of Arabic-language Iraqi documents captured by American troops.
Rep. Peter Hoekstra (R-Mich.), the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee
who led the campaign to get the documents released, does not believe they have
received adequate scrutiny. Hoekstra said he wanted to "unleash the power of the
Net" to do translation and analysis that might take the government decades.

Craig found some interesting little nuggets in newly released documents from Saddam’s Iraqi files here (PDF file).
don’t claim to understand the full context, but it appears that these Iraqi
officials were admitting to:"
- Bribing Russian officials to get
specific UN Security Council proposals changed.
- Lying about imported
- Transporting nuclear material
outside of Iraq
File description: ISGQ-2003-M0004667
This undated media
file contains 62 minutes and 36 seconds of audio recorded tape, of President
Saddam Hussein’s meeting with high ranking Iraqi officials, discussing Ikius
Report in the Security Council regarding the Iraqi Biological
Pg. 2 LIEUTENANT GENERAL
…However, there are grounds for the
Biological Program. Sir … one could be suspicious of it [the Biological Program]
if we concentrate on it [UNINTELLIGIBLE] and the trafficking effort and dodging
everything in regards to it….
…We have succeeded in a few of the
UN paragraphs, we have won Russia, ahhh … we have
convinced Russia by way of generous
accounts [payoffs] in which, you remember how and why it happened
Pg. 10 COMRADE HUSAYN:
…They have a bigger problem with the
Chemical program than the Biological program, a lot bigger than the Biological
program. It is not the weapons, the size of the imported material, the size of
[UNINTELLIGIBLE] that we presented to them or the size of the stockpile. They
knew that not all of this was true. We have not told them that we used it on
Iran, nor have we told them
about the size or kind of Chemical weapons that we produced, and we have not
told them the truth about the imported material….
Pg. 13 COMRADE HUSAYN:
…Sir, where was the Nuclear material
transported to? A number of them were transported outside of Iraq. A number of them [did
not specify whom] knew about the nature of our work in the past [UNINTELLIGIBLE]
I mean, they got out. Therefore sir, to solve this issue, we must stand firm.
Why should we stand firm? We should stand firm because the time will allow us to
confess all that we have … Sir, this estimate could take up to five years while
they are trying to solve it….
Any of my readers read Arabic? If so look over the document(s), is the translation accurate?
UPDATE: From Angry American (how appropriate, me too);
This additional document is quite damning hereMarch 11, 2003 – NOTE THE DATE – 9 days before the beginning of the Iraq
WarThe al-Quds liberation army division supplied us with information….as
follows.1. The Iraqi government will distribute the same leaflets that the American
forces are distributing but it will contain anthrax.2. Iraq imports uniforms resembling American forces uniforms for the
purpose of killing Iraqi citizens….3. Dig trenches around Baghdad…oil…burning…cause mayhemRay Robison explains the relivance of this document hereWhy on earth is this not being blasted out in the media?
Divine intervention? Sometimes you have to wonder…if these weapons had
been used on our troops, KIA and those temporarily and permanently sickened from
them may have been staggering. The unprotected innocents that would have
suffered the same, would have been mind boggling.
Sometimes Gd works in mysterious ways…the fact that these weapons were
not used in this war, saved countless lives.
Amen. We did find all those gas masks after the invasion, remember?
