    I posted a link to the ORIGINAL documents so that people could read them and draw their own conclusions.  The other two diaries relied on third party reporting which is fine but I prefer to look at the source data and make up my mind.  

    NO ONE is trying to shut down any conversation.  I want as many people as possible to look at the documents.  You don't get to control what conclusion they draw from those documents after reading them.

      but I do have the right to suggest to others that we have more knowledgeable people available to us help us make sense of what we are reading.  We have Amy Goodman, and others like her, who bring together expert witness, if you will, with experience of the politics and culture of these organizations and people who understand the literature.

      To assume that each of us can draw meaningful conclusions from reading the decuments on our own is a little like saying that anyone can read the Bible and draw their own conclusions...Yes they can but their conclusions are ilkely to be very faulty, misleading and naive.  

      What I appreciated about the other two diaries is that they gave us a path to knowledgable people who can help us parse what we're reading in useful ways.
