"Weekly Standard should have given jveritas credit for translating the document."

Do these guys realize that when they publish something like this without giving credit to the orginal author and site, they may be setting themselves up for Plagiarism charges?

A lot of future journalists in college set around all day using their computers to see who had the original publication and thought on many issues. It might not happen for a few years, but when it does it can be very embarrassing. Only a rat senator like Biden can get by with it without damages to his reputation.

Well that's because of what Biden's reputation already was ... plagarist, if anything, improves people's impression of him.

When it comes the Weekly Standard I have agreed with them to publish my translations with no need to credit me in the article. However I will ask them if they can mention Free Republic.
