Iraqi Perspectives Project – Saddam & Terrorism: Emerging Insights from Captured Iraqi Documents

This report was released online, available for download, this past week after the mass media did their best to completely lie and misinform about the contents of the report. They did this under the assumption that the American public would believe their lies, since they probably would not even bother to read the report.

Well, here is your chance to prove the mass media wrong. Just go here to download and read the report:

The Iraqi Perspectives Project — Saddam and Terrorism: Emerging Insights from Captured Iraqi Documents.

Here is the press release about the report: United States Joint Forces Command (USJFCOM) has released online an unclassified redacted version of the Joint Center for Operational Analysis (JCOA)-sponsored study entitled “The Iraqi Perspectives Project — Saddam and Terrorism: Emerging Insights from Captured Iraqi Documents.”

(NORFOLK, Va. – March 20, 2008) — United States Joint Forces Command (USJFCOM) has released online an unclassified redacted version of the Joint Center for Operational Analysis (JCOA) – sponsored study entitled “The Iraqi Perspectives Project — Saddam and Terrorism: Emerging Insights from Captured Iraqi Documents.”

In order to accommodate continuing public interest and to provide an accurate, definitive report, this online version is made available to improve efficient delivery of this material.

The five volumes of the document, linked below, documents the history of the Saddam regime.

The Institute for Defense Analyses produced the report under contract for the command as part of the broader Iraqi Perspectives Project.

The Iraqi Perspectives Project examines operational and strategic insights and lessons from the perspective of former senior Iraqi decision-makers through the analysis of primary source material such as interviews and captured regime documents.

The study’s authors completed the report after screening more than 600,000 captured documents including several hundred hours of audio and video files archived by U.S. Department of Defense.

As part of USJFCOM, JCOA studies strategic and operational lessons from recent and ongoing military operations in order to improve the joint force.

Volume 1 contains the executive summary of the report. Volumes 2-5 provide supporting documentations.

Again, the mass media has been completely lying about the contents of this report. This is not suprising to anyone except the so-called “anti-war” and “peace” activists who swallow down the lies of the mass media every time. Well, except when the mass media was reporting the ties between Saddam Hussein and al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden in 1998-1999, of course. But, why should we care about all the terrorism going on during the Sainted Clinton Administration. It’s all Boooooosh’s fault afterall.

Anyway, here are also a few great analyses of the report done by the gentlemen at Flopping Aces:

Americans Deserve Insight, Not Old News, On Iraq War, So Where is It?

Pentagon Report Confirms Saddam’s Regime Supported al Qaida

No Ties Between Saddam and Al Queda Network of Terrorist Groups

While the mass media reported that this report proved that there were no ties between Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden/a Qaeda, here is the actual conclusion from the report:

“v. Conclusion
One question remains regarding Iraq’s terrorism capability:  Is there anything in the captured archives to indicate that Saddam had the will to use his terrorist capabilities directly against United States?  Judging from examples of Saddam’s statements (Extract 34) before the 1991 Gulf War with the United States, the answer is yes.”

[btw, no emphasis added on that ’yes’. It’s emphasized in the report]

Read the entire report to find out what other lies the mass media has been pushing on you, while assuming you are just an ignorant, lazy idiot who will never read the report.

If You Yield to a Threat… You Do Not Avoid War

“[I]f you yield to a threat, you do so in order to avoid war, and more often than not, you do not avoid war. For those before whom you have thus openly demeaned yourself by yielding, will not stop there, but will seek to extort further concessions, and the less they esteem you the more incensed will they become against you. On the other hand, you will find your supporters growing cooler towards you, since they will look upon you as weak or pusillanimous. But if, as soon as you become aware of your adversary’s intentions, you prepare to use force, even though your forces be inferior to his, he will begin to respect you, and, since those with which you were allied will now esteem you, they will be ready to help when you begin to arm, which they would never have done had you given up.”

–Niccolo Machiavelli, Discourses Book II, Chapter 14. , Written in 1517.

Enlighten Us, Please – Just What the Hell do You Want?

Via commentor DW, at Sweetness & Light, who expresses my attitude about this entire Black Perpetual Victim Theology perfectly: New Pastor: Wright’s Sermons Are Art Form

“…but as a Black man in America i can still see that this country has a way to go and all this talk of get over it is just that talk.

Doc, maybe it would be helpful if you could enlighten us as to precisely what it is you want.

Do you want money ? Is that it ? Do you want every white person in North America to open his or her wallet and fork over some cash and maybe apologize while we’re at it ?

Do you want us to just leave ?

Do you want affirmative action programs where black people will be given preference over whites ?

Do you want people to be better educated over the injustices of the past, like having, say, a black history month ?

Do you want programs specifically designed to help black people succeed, like a United Negro College Fund or something ?

Do you want a country where a little black kid can grow up to be an MD ?
“Paging Doctor Harris…”

Do you want a country where a black man can become Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff ?
“General Powell, the red phone…”

Is it helpful to have it so that when a vicious crime is committed by blacks against whites, like the Christian/Newsom murders or the Central Park jogger rape, that it is acceptable for the black community to say that “the bitch was asking for it” ?

Do you want it so that black rappers can spread a message of hate and violence and get rich doing it -at the expense of black youths ?

Enlighten us, Please – just what the hell do you WANT ???

You’re an educated man, and a not unreasonable one, I suspect, so explain to this poor, dumb, northern cracker how people like the Reverend Wright, or Al Sharpton are doing anything other than keeping the old animosities alive. Yes, there’s plenty of hard feelings to go around but I think people like those two want it that way. Name one black person that Sharpton’s stood up for that wasn’t a violent criminal asshole. Or, better yet, name one violent criminal asshole -who happened to be black- that Sharpton hasn’t stood up for ?

And that’s supposed to give the black cause (whatever the hell that is) legitimacy ?

Guess what -all it does is alienate and piss-off white people who would ordinarily be sympathetic to disadvantaged blacks. How does that help anyone -black or white ?

It does give people like Sharpton and Wright a nice, lucrative career, though, doesn’t it ?

So I’m all ears, Doc. What’s the solution ?

And this is the key point for me:

Guess what – all it does is alienate and piss-off white people who would ordinarily be sympathetic to disadvantaged blacks. How does that help anyone – black or white?

After I knew about all the Rev Wright nonsense, I only thought ill of Barack Obama. But now after the mass media, Barack Obama apologists and Black leaders and Black media members have come out and stated that Rev Wright was correct and this is typical among “Black Churches”, I find my attitude about Blacks completely changed. So, as DW stated, I went from being sympathetic to disadvantaged Blacks to now being pissed off and looking at average Blacks in an entirely different way. Now, when a Black person walks by, I don’t just go on my merry way seeing him or her as just another American, but rather I now find myself thinking “hmm, there’s a Black person, I wonder if they are normal like me or a raving lunatic like Rev Wright?”

And no, I don’t feel good about feeling this way, but this is what Barack Obama’s race-baiting candidacy and his apologists have wrought. Nice job.
