Air Combat Command is reporting the death as being of Abu Nasr al-Tunisi[1], could be an important distinction and Anderson just identified the wrong man - leading to this mess. Sherurcij 21:34, 28 September 2007 (UTC)Reply

  • In February 2002, the FBI listed an Abu Nasr al-Tunisi as possibly being involved in a plot against US interests in Yemen.[2]
Definitely an error by ACC, since Anderson's Question/Answer period mentioned al-Tunisi leading the Aisha Brigade/Battalion anti-aircraft operations - exact same as the al-Tunisi who was reported killed last year. Sherurcij 02:00, 29 September 2007 (UTC)Reply

PD edit

Why the hell is this article in the public domain? --Nzgabriel | Talk 00:44, 29 September 2007 (UTC)Reply

Because the author (myself) releases all their work into the public domain, to quote User:DragonFire1024 "It is allowed, but not encouraged". Sherurcij 01:15, 29 September 2007 (UTC)Reply
You have a problem, DragonFire1024 added about 4k to this, and he doesn't release work as PD. --Brian McNeil / talk 11:45, 29 September 2007 (UTC)Reply
a) As per the template, by editing he agreed his edits were in the public domain, by not removing the template and stating otherwise
b) I know the instant "omg, I can trap him" is to add some small detail and thus make it CC-BY...but I can always just reword your information and poof, once more PD. I don't try to make CC-BY articles PD, don't try to make PD articles CC-BY
c) He only added a source to the story, he added nothing to the story itself. Sources can't be licensed or copyrighted, and the template is clear that the story is public domain. THus there is no problem. Sherurcij 18:30, 29 September 2007 (UTC)Reply
The great big problem you're overlooking is the majority of the community doesn't want PD. This was decided a long time ago, so if you want PD you are on your own and I - personally - will edit nothing which I see that template on. If there are issues I will tag, but no content as I want Wikinews credited. --Brian McNeil / talk 18:39, 29 September 2007 (UTC)Reply
