The treasure trove of captured documents from Saddam Hussein's regime collectively known as Harmony, which are now available for translation by anyone with access to the internet, continues to yield indications of WMD programs. As much of the press continues to pick around at intelligence assessments and analyses pre— and post— war which were in error, it is carfeully averting its eyes from evidence that Saddam was hiding the illegal weapons he had, was working closely with terrorists and had every intention of continuing to produce WMDs as soon as the sanctions program ——already weakened——was over.
The bloggers are not ignoring the captured documents which contain this evidence. JVeritas, a Free Republic poster has taken on the arduous task of translating and posting these documents. Here's the latest:
In pages 63 and 64 of document Document CMPC—2003—002284 , there is secret and confidential memo dated September 16 1998 concerning a meeting of the National Monitoring Department to discuss how to destroy some 'non necessary documents' and keep the necessary one in a safe place according to the memo but the most important part of the memo is a paragraph on how to handle 'The Researches That Cannot Be Declared and that is related with the previous Prohibited Programs of WMD and how to make sure that information about these researches will not leak to the outside because it will be too dangerous if this happened'. Yet another document that proves without any doubt that Saddam Regime never stopped working in his WMD programs and Research and they were just waiting for the opportune moment to produce these WMD again on a large scale. Also remember that in September 1998 the UN inspectors were still in Iraq and they were kicked later on that year after some US air and missile strikes. So most definitely these Secret Research Programs related to WMD were still in existence and may have reached a more advanced stage from late 1998 to late 2002 where during this period of time there were no UN inspectors in Iraq. This document is another proof that we could have never trusted Saddam and that we had all the right to remove his brutal and terrorist regime after 9/11/2001.

Needless to say, official translations must be made to verify the open source translations, but the policy ofn opening up the files to the public is paying off big time, as the Vice President might say.
