Bill Clinton doesnt like all the misinformation and rumors floating on the Internet. And he thinks the United Nations or the U.S. government should create an agency to do something about it.
It would be a legitimate thing to do, Clinton said in an interview airing Friday on CNBC.
The agency, Clinton said, would have to be totally transparent about where the money came from and would have to be independent because if its a government agency in a traditional sense, it would have no credibility whatever, particularly with a lot of the people who are most active on the internet.
Lets say the U.S. did it, it would have to be an independent federal agency that no president could countermand or anything else because people wouldnt think you were just censoring the news and giving a different falsehood out, Clinton said.
That is, it would be like, I dont know, National Public Radio or BBC or something like that, except it would have to be really independent and they would not express opinions, and their mandate would be narrowly confined to identifying relevant factual errors he said. And also, they would also have to have citations so that they could be checked in case they made a mistake. Somebody needs to be doing it, and maybe its a worthy expenditure of taxpayer money.
Interviewed alongside the CEO of a cybersecurity company, Clinton also said he did not expect lasting impact from the documents disclosed by WikiLeaks showing employees of the State Department run by his wife, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton assessing world leaders.
I dont believe theres any long-lasting impact on our relationships. People know that we didnt leak this on purpose. People know that the secretary of state and her top team, they had nothing to do with this, Clinton said. The diplomats whose cables were made public were just giving their impressions of what they saw on the ground in countries around the world.
At the same time, though, political figures in other countries will be careful what they say to Americas representatives around the world for a while because theyll have bad memories of the, you know, the leaked memo, he said.
Stressing the dangers of putting some information online, Clinton said that he and his wife keep hard copies of their living wills that cant be tampered with.
Its not like its that big or important, but its important to me, whatever I have to give to my family and whatever else I want to support, he said. Id be appalled to think somebody could fool with it.
He added: I do have a physical copy in one place, and I think thats important. So I think, you know, one of the things we may have to think about is whether our backstops and a lot of things are old-fashioned. Maybe snail mail, maybe more couriers. (5.13.2011, Jennifer Epstein)

"A society whose citizens refuse to see and investigate the facts, who refuse to believe that their government and their media will routinely lie to them and fabricate a reality contrary to verifiable facts, is a society that chooses and deserves the Police State Dictatorship it's going to get." Ian Williams Goddard
The fact is that "political correctness" is all about creating uniformity. Individualism is one of the biggest obstacles in the way of the New World Order. They want a public that is predictable and conditioned to do as it's told without asking questions.
