Does Pajamas Media deserve credit for the release of the Saddam Documents?

Maybe, maybe not, but I will allow you to decide. Back in mid-February Pajamas Media went to Washington to cover the Intelligence Summit and did video interviews with Congressman Hoekstra (chair of the House Intell Committee), former DCI Woolsey and Richard Perle, among others. In all those interviews we discussed our idea – new to all of them – that the myriad untranslated Saddam tapes and documents be released to the blogosphere for translation. The three men all, to one degree or another, liked the idea, although they were surprised by it. Today, it was announced that at the instigation of Hoekstra these documents have been released by the Pentagon for … and this is how it was worded on the Brit Hume Show on Fox News … for translation by the blogosphere.

UPDATE: One of the documents already translated by Iraq the Model here.
