The Captured Iraqi Intelligence Documents: What Do They Reveal and How Should They Be Handled?

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Allison Auditorium

The U.S. Government currently is sitting on a mountain of captured Iraqi documents that potentially could provide valuable information on Iraq's WMD programs, contacts with various terrorist organizations, corruption in the U.N.'s oil for food program, and other important issues. Yet these documents are being translated, processed, and declassified at a very slow pace. Why do so many documents remain unprocessed more than three years after the fall of Saddam Hussein's regime? How should they be handled to disseminate important information as soon as possible without compromising U.S. security interests?
