I have mixed feelings about this. Any news about bitcoins spreading around is good but Al Jazeera has a very bad anti-American reputatation. They went out of their way to tell the terrorist side of the story in Iraq and as an anonymous currency it isn't a good idea to associate with that kind of thing. As a libertarian I know drugs should be legal so things like silk road are okay but there should be a way to root out other criminal groups who try and use bitcoin.
You have IMHO AJ all wrong. They are not Anti-American and not pro terrorist. In fact, the USG has twice blown up [on purpose] their bureau in two cities for truth telling. It is the USG [and I'm American, if you care to know!] that is the terrorist - with its endless wars only for profit and Empire - its phony war on [really of] Terror. If anyone will try to destroy BTC or anything like it, it will be the USG - or the financial Oligarchy behind them. AJ is the best news service, bar none.
