For those who have net read this text, it is one fun read. Now what really perked me up was the description of the creation of the face on Mars. This ancient text describes the face thousands of years before we discover it with our Mars missions. Sure, some say it is not a face but I believe it is and that this text gives the reason for it. If you have not read the text, you should for it is quite interesting and entertaining.

1-7. …… entire land ……, …… struck, the palace was devastated. …… panic spread rapidly among the dwellings of the black-headed people. …… abandoned places …… in Sumer. …… the cities were destroyed in their entirety; the people were seized with panic. Evil came upon Urim and made the trustworthy shepherd pass away. It made Ur-Namma, the trustworthy shepherd, pass away; it made the trustworthy shepherd pass away.
8-14. Because An had altered his holy words completely, …… became empty, and because, deceitfully, Enlil had completely changed the fate he decreed, Ninmaḫ began a lament in her ……. Enki shut (?) the great door of Eridug. Nudimmud withdrew into his bedchamber and lay down fasting. At his zenith, Nanna frowned at the …… words of An. Utu did not come forth in the sky, and the day was full of sorrow.

Yes, I find very little backing for what he says. I could be wrong (and if I am please correct me, but with data please). However it seems to me that while some ancient Sumer texts could be interpreted slightly as Sitchin has, most of the conclusions he reaches are unwarranted by the tablets themselves.
To use an analogy:
It's like your finding a shopping list on the ground that says "Milk"... and from that you conclude that the person that wrote it also loved Oreo cookies and cocoa." Maybe he did, or maybe he didn't... but it's a wide stretch to speculate
