Iraqi Document Fever

Catchy No?

Just been cleaning out my emails - mostly from moonbats "Hey facist! You know Bush is a liar, liar pants on fire....there's nothing in the document - NOTHING!!!"

But for people of intelligence these documents are explosive. It's going to be a fun summer.

Reservations not withstanding...

Thomas Lifson at American Thinker quotes blogger Ray Robinson as "throwing water" on the document fever:

"Our contributor Ray Robison does not share the enthusiasm of many bloggers over the release of captured documents. Writing on his website Ray Robison, he notes that only those boxes marked NIV [no intelligence value] are to be released.

NIV is the trash. There is nothing of intelligence value in these items or they would be IV.

One of the reasons for the resistance to the release of these documents is the risk that people would not be able to apply context to these documents and would make incorrect assertions. The limited release of nine document has proven that concern to be valid."

I've not familiar with Mr. Robinson, but he is not exactly correct about the classification of "NIV". True, it means "No intelligence value", but that doesn't mean that they are not valid or authentic. NIV correctly interpreted can mean "for the trash - file 13", or it can mean that their intelligence value has expired. Meaning that the information has been farmed, and "pieced" or incorporated into other infomation. It can also mean that it has no value in the present scenario, or "declassed".

But it doesn't mean that it wasn't valued back then - prior to 2003 or beyond.. I will agree that I too await the translation on the al-Zarqawi dossier, but although the initial release doesn't tickle ur toes, let's not throw the baby out with the bath water (sorry - I just like the clitche). Fact is there is a lot more coming - a helluva lot more.

Keep on translating.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?


As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!

Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
