Robert, did you LOOK at the website the page you cite is found on? I never
even got whatever point you were trying to make because I wasted a half hour
sitting here with my jaw dropping. Even though I've spent a good deal of
time researching the lunatic white-supremacist, black helicopter crowd
before, this site was so extreme I was glued to the screen in horror.
There's plenty of good information on the Afghan/Islamist crisis becoming
available now from reliable sources. I don't want to re-ignite the "tainted
source" debate we had here recently, but do understand that folks from my
side of the humanities/science divide see a reference to a source like that
as evidencing a lack of judgment about the cultural context of the material
you're passing on.

Your friend,

Greg Burch
Vice-President, Extropy Institute
