This post has nothing to do with torts.
How is it possible that the White House, which has direct access to and hopefully control over the State Department, the Defense Department, the CIA, the NSA, and host of other agencies, possibly rely on a Web site called Encyclopedia of World Biography to prepare a biography on a world leader?

BTW, read this for George W. Bush’s bio on the same site. A teaser:
"After graduating from Yale in 1968, Bush moved back to Houston where he worked for an agribusiness company (a company that produces farm products and equipment) and for a mentoring program (a program in which people counsel or guide others). But the recent graduate was unfocused. Later, after beginning his political career, questions arose about how he had managed to avoid serving in the Vietnam War (1965–75; a war fought in Vietnam in which the United States supported South Vietnam in its fight against a takeover by North Vietnam). He was a member of a Texas Air National Guard unit stationed at Ellington Air Force Base. The unit included other sons of powerful people. At the time, the National Guard had a long waiting list of young men eager to avoid combat service in Vietnam during the war, but Bush managed to sail through easily."
