"Unleash the power of the Internet" on the Congress.

By Rafael DeGennaro, March 30, 2006 – 4:38pm.

I guess Congress is beyond irony. The AP reported March 27, 2006 that congressional Republicans pushed to put documents from the Saddam Hussein government on the Internet:

The U.S. government is making public a huge trove of documents seized during the invasion of Iraq, posting them on the Internet in a step that is at once a nod to the Web’s power and an admission that U.S. intelligence resources are overloaded.

Republican leaders in Congress pushed for the release, which was first proposed by conservative commentators and bloggers….

….The idea of the government turning over a massive database to volunteers is revolutionary and not only to them. “Let’s unleash the power of the Internet on these documents,” said House Intelligence Chairman Peter Hoekstra.”
