Disputed Sources (was NOW?)


Now I know there is a great tradition in News of the Weird, but this is a completly un-supported and un-sourced article. There has to be a better source than this. -Drew 15:54, 19 February 2006 (UTC)Reply

I pulled this and placed the Sources Flag on it. This thing has no sources once I looked at the Salt Lake citation. Its from a compilation of unknown sources. It needs to be independently verified.-Drew 18:46, 19 February 2006 (UTC)Reply

Totally agree. What's this nonsense about cell phone batteries and electronic tracking?! A source might help -- 18:28, 19 February 2006 (UTC)Reply

The original report was by the Chicago Tribune on Christmas of December 2005.

I'm new to this Wiki thing, so I don't know how to get this republished back to the main page - but it deserves to be. I'll leave that to you. Here is the link to the original Tribune Investigation:

I cannot get into that link to verify the information. If this was Christmas 2005, its fairly old. Are we sure this is news? -Drew 16:13, 21 February 2006 (UTC)Reply

I sourced the link on the front of the article. Not sure why you can't link to it and read it; works for me. It seems to be news for the Salt Lake City Tribune (as it states in the original Wiki article written here - "A December CIA Report" - but this story broke back in December with the investigation by the Chicago Tribune. In the grand scheme, its not new news. --Namaste rich 00:24, 22 February 2006 (UTC)Reply
