Outsourcing & Identity Theft- Related?

A reporter for the British newspaper Sun, managed to bribe an employee of an Indian call center which handles bank work for confidential account information about 1,000 British customers. This information was bought for £2,750 up front & another £275 later. As 75% of IT outsourcing is goes to India, this incident should be taken very seriously.

Could there be a link between the rising incidence of identity theft & outsourcing?

Public to MSM: Drop Dead

A Rasmussen Reports survey found that,

*20% of Americans believe prisoners at Guantanamo Bay have been treated unfairly.

*seven-out-of-ten adults believe the prisoners are being treated "better than they deserve" (36%) or "about right" (34%)

* just 14% agree with people who say that prisoner treatment at Guantanamo Bay is similar to Nazi tactics.

*69% disagree with that comparison

And this ladies & gentleman, is why democracy is the best system of governance.

Begins With an "I" & Ends With "slam"

"The problem is that we let religious people say stunningly false things and we consider it rude to question those beliefs,” says Flemming. “But we should be shunning those people." “If that sounds intolerant, that's the point,” he adds. "I'm not tolerant of suspending reason."

So said Brian Flemming when promoting his film. To which religion is he refering to here, Christianity of course. Would he say the same about about, say.......a religion which begins with an "I" & ends with "slam"?
