Flashback: AJStrata - Unleash the blogosphere
Flashback: Pajamas Media documentarian Andrew Marcus interviews Rep. Hoekstra Feb. 16 about the docs: "They ought to be put on the Internet...unleash the power of the 'net on these 55,000 boxes of documents to see exactly what went on...Let the blogosphere go!"
John Hinderaker starts digging into the new document trove here.

Saddam's terror training camps
I have received most of the surveys back from the blogswarm that undertook a review of the newly-released documents regarding the Guantanamo Bay detainees. Most of the study's volunteers have remarkably similar comments about the information provided in the documents. The Denbeaux study which prompted this blogswarm reached a number of conclusions that appear now to be highly subjective assumptions. For instance, the Duke wrote after his review:

The link king strikes again!
Thanks for looking.

Hoekstra: Bloggers can help digest Iraq documents
Millions of pre-Iraq war intelligence documents are now being posted online, and two Republican lawmakers want bloggers' help in digesting them.
Senator Rick Santorum and Michigan Congressman Peter Hoekstra
I've been waiting for something like this for a long time.
Like Wile E. Coyote running off a cliff, the whole "Bush Lied" crowd will pretend that of they just don't look, they won't fall. Thanks to people like you, that will be more difficult.
Will you add prewardocs to your keywords these threads are under? I've done a ping list for the threads, and that's the keyword I'm adding. I'm off to do a search on your keyword now to make sure I haven't missed any!
Ping and bookmarked
Looks like it's in News/Activism now--thanks, Backhoe!
Good link- thanks!
Appreciate those pings- thank you.
Cool! I meant to ask the mods, and got tied up in what Entropy Squared colorfully calls "the meatworld interface."
I hope somebody's coordinating the document translation.
