Second in a biweekly series of updates. Like last week, we’ve posted lots of new material on WikiLeaks, domestic terrorism, the Plame-Niger and the finances behind European football.
We’ve added half a dozen or so WikiLeaks entries in the Domestic Propaganda project, with one crossposted in Iraq under US Occupation.
Several new entries are now in the Iraq-Uranium subproject.
Lots of new entries are in the Domestic Terrorism project, including material on US militias, environmental and animal-rights activists, and early entries in the Branch Davidian subproject.
And we’ve done a fistful of entries on the finances behind European football (soccer for the Americans) in the Miscellaneous project. Still pondering over the best permanent home for these.
If you’re not writing for the History Commons, give it a spin, we’d love to have you. And we are always financially strapped, so anything you can donate will be very welcome.

It should have been reversed, because when all is said and done, there is far more meat on the bones of Raymond’s book than on McClellan’s.
