Well duhEdit

Does an ex-president need to become captain obvious for Americans to be told the truth? In other news Jimmy Carter announces that Afghanistan probably would have handed over Osama Bin-Laded to a neutral country for trial? -- (talk) 15:07, 23 September 2009 (UTC)

I would have to agree. President Carter is simply stating the obvious. I don't understand why some people are making such a fuss over this. -- Poe Joe (talk) 00:32, 24 September 2009 (UTC)

well, Duh?Edit

Well, you may be aware that the United States engages in these activities but very, very few Americans are. Don't you think it is odd that this did not appear on any mainstream media today?

I was unaware of this new story until checking out wikinews. I didn't notice it on Fox, CNN or MSNBC this morning. Nor was it mentioned on my morning drive radio. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Msmyth13 (talkcontribs)

A lot of stories like this will get coverage on Al Jazeera - who are nowhere near as bad as some make them out to be. The interesting thing is to watch their news bulletins and see how many of their newscasting staff have come from the BBC, because they're trying to be the Arab World's answer to the BBC. --Brian McNeil / talk 14:47, 24 September 2009 (UTC)

Carter is a discraceEdit

Former President Carter is a disgrace to the nation, with all these remarks he is making now, he never was a good president anyways. -- (talk) 01:53, 26 September 2009 (UTC)
