Open sourcing intelligence

In an interesting move the US Intelligence have put a large number of documents that were captured in Iraq shortly after the invasion, but have yet to be translated and cataloged, on the web for anyone to view.

This is a really bizarre thing to do. Firstly, it shows that gathering intelligence is not a priority. Secondly, so much "noise" is going to be generated by unqualified translations (Iraqi babelfish anyone?). I suspect this was instigated via embarrassment when tapes from this pool of documents provided evidence that Saddam did have WMD, but what a strange thing to do.

Who is General Failure and what is he doing with my country?
