Multimedia Discussion[edit]

There is ongoing discussion between Tiller54 and myself as to whether this picture should be featured in this article:

The conflicts in Eastern Europe were a critical international policy factor for the 1996 election cycle, in New Mexico[1] and elsewhere.[2] Clinton can be seen here shaking hands with troops stationed near (former) Yugoslavia, months before the election, 1996.

What are your thoughts on this issue? Thank you. --7partparadigm talk 00:40, 7 February 2014 (UTC)

The caption claims that the Yugoslav Wars were "a critical international policy factor for the 1996 election cycle". If that were true, there would be references that support the claim. The 2 provided are, respectively:
The caption therefore clearly fails WP:V and should be removed.
As for the picture itself, it's not of Clinton either campaigning or in New Mexico, thus it has absolutely no relevance whatsoever to the article and should also be removed. Tiller54 (talk) 16:08, 7 February 2014 (UTC)
References do not support the claim. The picture is completely irrelevant to the article. --NeilN talk to me 16:34, 7 February 2014 (UTC)
In agreement w/ Tiller54 & NeilN. Not relevant to article, fails WP:V. Should not be included.--JayJasper (talk) 17:54, 7 February 2014 (UTC)
Fair enough, outvoted. --7partparadigm talk 00:26, 8 February 2014 (UTC)
