Copyright and Times reference[edit]

This sentence is a direct copy paraphrase of Baldwin's Times article:

He also cited the containment of al-Qa'ida as a major achievement of the past seven years.

There may be others, so please check carefully.

I've changed that sentence. I also reverted the Times reference in the text. I've had a look at the article on the times website, and it's exactly the same as the one in The Australian. So I've revered it so it matches the sources section. --RockerballAustralia (talk)

I credited The Times in the sources section, as does The Australian, so it does match the sources section. If an AP writer says something, we don't credit it (in the body) to the New York Times that published the article, as far as I know, so I think mentioning The Times is proper, and I disagree with your reversion.
I had a couple of nits, but I think it is a great article. Thanks.

Try to make better use of local links and categories. I have added them. --SVTCobra 23:00, 16 January 2009 (UTC)
