Seized Intelligence Files Spur U.S. Investigations (

The Iraqi files are 'almost as much as the Stasi files,' said a senior U.S. official, referring to the vast archives of the former East German intelligence service seized after the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.

The records would stretch 91/2 miles if laid end to end, the officials said. They contain not only the names of nearly every Iraqi intelligence officer, but also the names of their paid foreign agents, written agent reports, evaluations of agent credentials, and documentary evidence of payments made to buy influence in the Arab world and elsewhere, the officials said.

I wonder how many Saudis or Syrians are in those files. Maybe we should publish them.
