Since these issues have not yet played themselves out, I would consider 
them pre-historic.  Though the Iraq item is a tad speculative.  The 
facts are continuing to evolve, and much of what is written is based on 
incomplete information.  But Wikipedian collaboration can overcome that.

I would put these dogs on a long leash, but still watch that they don't
