Latest site list update: 17.08.06
How effective the court injunction may be against the Murder in Samarkand documents will of course depend largely on how widely posted and mirrored the documents are. It is clearly just a matter of fact that the more sites that choose to host the documents, the less likely it is that the government will be sucessful in supressing them...
They first appeared on 2 sites in the UK and one in the US: Craig Murray, at Blairwatch and on Dahr Jamail's Iraq Dispatches. Although they have now been removed from the Craig Murray weblog they are still available from the other two.
Heck! A couple of the best have turned up here as well:
The Iraq Memo
The Torture Telegram
Other sites that have them available include:
Many Angry Gerbils
Politics in the Zeros
An Oxford Mirror
Ministry of Truth
Free in Holland
and a fair few others too...
Now entering the mysterious world of hostless hosting and p2p.
http://dahrjamailiraq.com has a .torrent file that they made for p2p sharing of the documents and is, apparently, gaining traction on the web:
It seems that providing a link to this .torrent file does not violate any copyright laws since the documents downloaded from the files that the .torrent file point to don't reside on any given web server...
Another alternative is provided via anonymous hosting at Rapidshare.de
Sites in Canada, France and elsewhere are also blogging on the documents issue. And finally, apologies to anyone missed out on this rather cursory summary. See comments for further details of the mentioned sites.
