The Spanish version is at least partly a translation from English to Spanish (Aznar's words might be original in Spanish or back-translated from English), and the English version is (at least in the case of Bush) kcurie's back-translation to English. I am in the process of polishing the English for wider diffusion (at least Booman's and DKos).

Great work, kcurie and Migeru!

Have you got this open now for editing? If so, can you deal with the long URL at the top that explodes the columns?

Now I've read through, there are a lot of places where I think I could clean up/improve the English. I could list them in a comment or make the changes myself, if you and kcurie trust me.

Can you go in and make the changes?

According to the El Pais news story the minutes were kept y Javier Ruipérez, Spanish Ambassador in the US. One can therefore assume the Spanish is Aznar's and Bush's and Condi's English in our version is a back-translation.

I can post it to the front page of DocuDharma if you want. I know I can post it under my name, I think I can promote your diary if you post it over there.

I can post it on dK tomorrow if you want me to.

It should be posted tonight. It is after all a sc00p, and wont remain so for long... If the diary goes nowhere, you can always re-diary it later.

I actually read about it in Le Monde this morning before seeing it in the Salon, where I had intended to put a link, but saw that Fran already had.
