Best source on translation of Saddam tapes to be played and analyzed at
DNI Negroponte remarks of the intelligencesummit.org tapes, nothing new: yet DNI does not have a translation of the material to comment upon: DNI is either guessing or spinning or both: and DNI shows a peculiar impatience to reach a conclusion that DNI has not earned. Regret to observe the lack of translators and focus in USG.
I am recommending patience. These are early days. Arabic speakers will now get hold of the first available material and start to pull it apart.
More coming soon, this weekend, in major media. Transcripts, pull quotes, scary details.
Much more coming. Do not choose sides. Wait, listen, study.
