The soldiers came looking for weapons of mass destruction. What they found in the flooded basement of Saddam Hussein's secret police headquarters was a legacy of destruction — the demise of one of the oldest Jewish communities in the world.
There was a treasure trove of Torahs and Haggadas, centuries old. And there were marriage records, university applications, financial documents — the living record of a community, seized by the Mukhabarat from the homes of Jews as they fled Iraq under pressure and amid persecution, with only a handful remaining.
Now comes the historical conundrum: Who owns these materials?
With the materials still sitting in a College Park office building, stabilized but with mold on them, the Iraqi government is demanding that they be shipped back, saying they are the property of the Iraqi people.
"They represent part of our history and part of our identity. There was a Jewish community in Iraq for 2,500 years," said Samir Sumaidaie, the Iraqi ambassador to the United States. "It is time for our property to be repatriated."
We want the Jews' property returned. But not the Jews.

HUDSON – The mystery of Alvirne High School's world-record, 320-foot-long slide rule from three decades ago has been solved, mostly.
One question remains: Where is it now?
After the enormous, wooden contraption was laid out in front of the school on a crisp March morning 31 years ago, proving to be so long that students had to change the calculation so they wouldn't block the driveway; and after The Telegraph had published a picture of it, so the Guinness Book of World Records would acknowledge Alvirne's work in the 1980 edition; and after the school's senior class had celebrated their accomplishment by taking their own pictures for the school yearbook – after all that, what happened to the slide rule?
THE aliens are out there and Earth had better watch out, at least according to Stephen Hawking. He has suggested that extraterrestrials are almost certain to exist — but that instead of seeking them out, humanity should be doing all it that can to avoid any contact.
Hawking's logic on aliens is, for him, unusually simple. The universe, he points out, has 100 billion galaxies, each containing hundreds of millions of stars. In such a big place, Earth is unlikely to be the only planet where life has evolved.

After finding the script, the lucky patron did what any good Samaritan would do—he turned it over to a local British tabloid. The Sun didn't release any details of the script—although it did run blurred photos of the pages to torture obsessive fans—except to say that the movie will diverge radically from the book.
The tabloid returned the script to Warner Bros. the next day. According to the Sun, this is the third time that Harry Potter "secrets" have almost been aired. In 2003, early copies of the The Order Of The Phoenix were discovered a field before the book was officially released, and three years later, an early copy of the script turned up at "an alleged 'dogging' site" near a British highway.
