What is this about?
I'm actually a little confused. What is all this about? This seems to be about some insignificant author who wanted to smear Clinton. Why is he listed as a significant person from Amsterdam?
Biased, sloppy article with factual errors
This biased article is sloppily written with poor sentence structure, grammatical errors, factual errors, and biased wording. The first lines look like a 3rd grader's book report: "Gary Aldrich is a former FBI agent and author from Amsterdam, New York.Born May, 22, 1945 in Amsterdam, NY. His wife is Nina, she is an ex-FBI agent, they have 3 children." An un-cited line is factually incorrect: "He founded the Patrick Henry Center for Individual Liberty, whose aim is, "promoting the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights and supporting the right of citizens to engage in ethical dissent."[cite this quote]" The Patrick Henry Center for Individual Liberty states, "The Patrick Henry Center for Individual Liberty is a non-profit organization focused on identifying, encouraging, supporting, and protecting those who believe in free speech, particularly as it applies to ethics and honesty in the federal government." [ http://www.thepatrickhenrycenter.com/ ] No citation for: "Aldrich was an FBI agent assigned to the White House under both Bush and Clinton. He was with the FBI for 26 years (1969-95), the last five years ('90-'95) he was the agent responsible for background checks on White House staff." No citation for: "The book was praised in many conservative circles." NPOV challenged with this statement: "In the liberal news media, the book was condemned as an untruthful attack..." (Which may also fall under the category of a hoax or patently false statement). All of the rest of the statements (save for the very last sentence) are highly charged in nature, and lack documentation or citations.
All in all, the article is sloppily written, with statements that range from highly questionable, to outright falsehoods. More chaff than wheat here. —Preceding unsigned comment added by ILarynx (talk • contribs) 11:11, 15 February 2008 (UTC)
