Release of captured documents

The Director of National Intelligence dumps a bunch of "documents and media captured" during the U.S. invasion of Iraq.

From a news account, with my emphasis added:

Still, conservative bloggers, eager to bolster the case for going to war against Iraq, have long argued for release of the documents. They gained a powerful ally last month in Michigan Republican Pete Hoekstra, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. In an interview with blogger Andrew Marcus, Hoekstra called for Negroponte to release the documents online. ''Unleash the power of the Net," Hoekstra said. ''Let the blogosphere go." Kansas Republican Pat Roberts, chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, backed Hoekstra's proposal.


According to an intelligence official who declined to be identified, Negroponte plans to release all documents that have no further intelligence value.

Just so we're clear on that last point.
