Sorry about the formatting of my posts,
I have a 24 inch 1920 by 1200 pixel monitor
so I see a lot and cannot what tell my posts look like
at lower screen resolutions, next time I will try and
do a proper text formatting and fix the character
I did the formatting in that way because the email
I received was displayed as a normal Hotmail web entry
except with the ATTENTION: and my name as subject line.
I opened the email and found it intriguing and
did a cut and paste of the text to an open
Windows Notepad window. At that time the text
just kept running to the right and thus I had to
manually insert carriage returns into the text
so I could read and post it on ATS.
That tells me the original text was done in a
word processor such as MS Word which does NOT
insert hard carriage return/linefeed sequences
at the end of a line to give a hard line break
so that is why the formatting is a bit off
not the mention I was a bit excited and
wanted to post as fast as possible BUT ONLY AFTER
doing some preliminary Wikipedia and Internet searches
on some of the phrasing and wording of the email
text to see if it's language conforms to some
generally accepted military-speak or memo formats.
It does NOT, but some of the acronyms
and minor phrasing DOES conform to someone
who would have extensive knowledge of or possibly
might BE of military origin or placement.
The following paragraph:
The resulting inefficiencies became an operational nightmare
after certain crash events became "media fodder" and magnets
for the local, national and international press, in addition
to the ruckus raised by local military commanders close
to the "Areas of Operation" who became aware of specific
retrieval events and were chagrined at their exclusion
to the festivities.
Is a bit suspect because it is typical news-speak, editorialising
and opinion, so it makes me think a person with a media
background or education wrote the original email but mixed
in some factual information from another source!
It would be interesting to read the Original Source Material.
In terms of suspects, I have some personal beliefs
but those of course are unsubstantiated. What I do know
is that email got to me in a rather unusual manner
which is why I am raising some brouha here on ATS.
My guess is that there is both TRUTH and some fallacy
in the email text....This indicates to ME that is is both
dis-information and a sneak-peak at what might come
for real....otherwise someone is having a big laugh
at my expense which would PO me to no end!
And again, I have no knowledge of the reasons
WHY I was chosen to receive this text and as another poster
noted, why not send it to a moderator or the ATS website owners?
What do THEY gain by sending it to ME instead of CNN?
Otherwise, my take is to read the text with a grain of salt
and keep looking for the nuggets of gold in all that
wet sand of information overload.
If you've got good stuff such as Audio/Video/Photos,
you know where to reach me !!!!!!!!!!!!!
