He's working very hard at it.
It's coming off a little forced actually. I chalk it up to lack of practice.

But then I would be demonstrating my...how did he put it? Lack of education and life experience. :-°

I guess he's right. A better educated and experienced person wouldn't have unbanned him :-B

I haven't regretted a decision this much since I bet on the Lions to have a better season than the Pats.

these really are fascinating. Each one is like a short story.
Heres a "Secret" one that the wiki leaks guys scrubbed the informants name but failed to protect "the source" .. The guy came in and spilled his guts to the US, and i'd say the chances of him living are low.

SUBJECT: XXXXXXXXXXXX TALKS OF CORRUPTION AT THE HIGHEST LEVELS OF GOVERNMENT


.. The Charge recently met with XXXXXXXXXXXX --("the source") who described his frustrations with FRELIMO, President Guebuza, and Mohamed Bashir Suleiman (MBS). He complained that they exercise complete control over the licit and illicit economy of Mozambique.


... The source, who has excellent connections within the Government of Mozambique (GRM), including the private number of the President, as well as a personal relationship with MBS ..
... The source describes President Guebuza, who he has known and befriended for the past twenty years ...
...The source's milk processing facility was threatened by MBS who used VAT-avoidance and under-invoicing to dump vast quantities of imported condensed milk on the market in order to put the source out of business.


I bet they know who he is now ..

I thought this comment from Glenn Greenwald was pretty much spot-on, and raises a number of points that have largely being ignored:
"Whatever you think of WikiLeaks, they have not been charged with a crime, let alone indicted or convicted. Yet look what has happened to them. They have been removed from Internet … their funds have been frozen … media figures and politicians have called for their assassination and to be labeled a terrorist organization. What is really going on here is a war over control of the Internet, and whether or not the Internet can actually serve its ultimate purpose—which is to allow citizens to band together and democratize the checks on the world’s most powerful factions."

Glenn Greenwald doesn't appear to understand what the internet's ultimate purpose actually is.
