: : It's a website - c'mon, it's GOT to monitored by the US gov't already. In fact, one might guess that supposedly forecast U.S. military moves could have been used to confuse Iraqi intelligence.... All kinds of bullshit goes on in war.
: It's suspect that the people at IraqWar.ru could have been aiding the "Iraqi" military because the site translates *only* into Russian & English. If they'd been aiding the Iraqi military, they would have had the site written up in Arabic, NOT English. English language web sites are easy for the U.S. government to monitor.
xxx The reason why the U.S. government may have wanted that service discontinued was NOT because it was helping the Iraqi military by forcasting U.S. military news, but because Venik was translating *news* into English that wasn't as *doctored* as either the U.S. & Russian governments wanted it to be. The *English* translation is the key - *news* with delicate information that wasn't meant for the English speaking public must have been mixed into the "intelligence reports".
