4. Yup. How many of us speak Arabic? And, more to the point:
How easy is it to get a copy of the original tape? Ekkehard Sieker described the difficulties involved in actually acquiring the damn thing (he went through a Kafkaesque rigmarole).

But if he can do it, so can any American reporter. The original Arabic tape could now be acquired from the German journalists, thereby evading White House obstruction, and the test could easily be repeated with a dozen independent Arabic translators living in the States. The total cost of a dozen translations would probably be no more than about $15,000, maximum. Any TV station could afford that, and they'd have a big story on their hands.

- Does anyone have any contact to anyone good on US TV?
