== did you mean... ==
In this section: MacShane and Muslims you state: "In the same article, he misrepresents the statement which had caused the outrage by publishing the altered version of the speech, which was changed as a result of the furore."  Hmmm... did he republish the original??  If he altered it to due to pressure, I suspect that you mean that he reverted to the original...
you say:
:To salvage its credibility, the IISS, unlike the British Government, claimed that it made mistakes in its dossier about the extent of the Iraqi threat, and commissioned an independent assessment by [[Rolf Ekeus]], a former head of United Nations arms inspectors in Iraq.Samore and Chipman later claimed that their dossier had caveats about Iraq's supposed WMD arsenal, while the Government insisted on removing such caveats from intelligence assessments - leading to "sexing up" accusations.<ref> Kim Sengupta, [http://www.mindfully.org/Reform/2004/IISS-Iraq-Occupation26may04.htm Iraq Occupation Made World Less Safe, Pro-War Institute Says Studies ], ''The Independent'', May 26, 2004
But is what they say about the caveats true?  If so, does this undermine the previous popint about their original report?  Can you explain or include the evidence?

== why removed? ==
Why did you remove the table format of the component organizations of NED?  It put forth the linkages better than what you did.  NB: there were more groups that will be added to this.
== but it conveys the relative importance ==
But the table conveys the relative importance.  You also axed the USAID link.

== requirement ==
The folks at SW require entries to have a bit of info about what has been added or changed... one usually enters this in the Summary line.  It would be nice if Spin* folks would do the same...
== ff off... ==
Hi Idrees
You entered the footnote references to the LFOI with some silly format... since you entered this to begin with, could you make sure they match and make sense??
Kind rgds
Yes, I know.  See: http://www.spinprofiles.org/index.php/User_talk:Paul

== Foundation for the Defense of Democracies ==
Hi Idress,
Not sure if the [[Foundation for the Defense of Democracies]] page is originally authored by you but if it is you may be interested in some Tax Returns I have added to the page. They include major funders and other interesting stuff.

== wrong name ==
Edward Luttwark is misspelled, it should be: [[Edward Luttwak]]
== issues? ==
Hi Idrees
could you add something in the Issues box on your portal page? guess it comes down to a question like: why should the public care about this issue?/implications for democracy, fairness, etc.
thanks! --[[User:Claire Robinson|Claire Robinson]] 20:05, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
