Sibel Holiday 

Boston.com / News / Nation / Translator in eye of storm on retroactive classification
Sifting through old classified materials in the days after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, FBI translator Sibel Edmonds said, she made an alarming discovery: Intercepts relevant to the terrorist plot, including references to skyscrapers, had been overlooked because they were badly translated into English.
Ummm, I'm glad this is being reported in a major mainstream paper, but why wait for the holiday weekend to print this old news as if it was brand new?
