  • Symbol question.svg - Article is new enough and long enough. No obvious copyvio nor close paraphrasing noticed. Some issues though - First: Hook contains a conjecture/supposition - not a fact ("possibly the United States"). Second: The hook fact is not supported by an independent, reliable source. This link used to support the hook is to an organization founded by Samatar. EagerToddler39 (talk) 18:55, 19 January 2014 (UTC)
