Given that so many WP "volunteer" editors/admins are obviously working fulltime at WP, and given that they can't surely all be rich kids, I wonder who pays their bills? No, I'm not talking about editors paid by PR agencies to promote something or other in the corporate sector. Everybody knows about them. I'm talking instead about certain very obviously fulltime editors/admins who're very actively engaged in certain high-profile military-political and military history topics. We'll never know; it's top secret. But use your imagination, and if that fails, try common sense.
Conspiracy theory? Of course; but it's no less suasive than some of the drivel that finds its way into the fairly tale world of WP (and sometimes even into WR, come to think of it.)
A couple of years ago, US Special Operations Command launched a campaign to recruit civilian psychological warfare operatives who would be "controlled by managers reporting to SOCOM based in US regional command HQs around the world - managers holding US Top Secret/Secure Compartmented Information clearances, with "extensive public diplomacy, journalism, and media-relations skills". http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/09/16/so...ops_against_uk/
USSOCOM’s Joint Military Information Support Command (JMISC), in "emphasizing culturally-attuned international engagement", spoke of orchestrating a 24/7 multi-media campaign formatted to the cultures and languages of relevant audiences, to provide "an alternative to the extremist ideology for global audiences (in) a tough, entrenched war of ideas."
