Saddam Intended Suicide Missions Against US

Showing the sort of initiative that should be coming from an alert mainstream press, Ed Morrissey of Captain's Quarters has confirmed the translation of a captured Iraqi document asking for volunteers for a "Suicide Mission" against "American Interests".

Fearing that critics would claim the document had been mistranslated because the original translation had been done for the Free Republic, Morrissey hired two independent translators to confirm the original. Captain Ed has posted the results, both of which confirm the original translation:
The top secret letter 2205 of the Military Branch of Al Qadisya on 4/3/2001 announced by the top secret letter 246 from the Command of the military sector of Zi Kar on 8/3/2001 announced to us by the top secret letter 154 from the Command of Ali Military Division on 10/3/2001 we ask to provide that Division with the names of those who desire to volunteer for Suicide Mission to liberate Palestine and to strike American Interests and according what is shown below to please review and inform us.
This document, in and of itself, proves that Saddam had not only contemplated terrorism against US interests, but was actively recruiting martyrs for that purpose. The conclusion is obvious, as stated by Captain Ed: "...destroying Saddam's regime is an integral part of the war on terror, not a distraction."

The mainstream media has yet to report the existence of this document.
