Mr. Qaddafi, You've Got Mail

from the emailing-the-world's-most-despoting-leaders dept

Well, this one can be fun for the whole family. Following the widely publicized hack into what was supposedly “Saddam Hussein’s email box” by Wired a few weeks back, the NY Times has decided to see what other despotic world leaders offer in terms of email access. It seems to be a mixed bag, but apparently you can send personal greetings to most of them (including SMS messages to Muammar Qaddafi in Libya). The chances of any of these leaders ever getting anywhere near reading any of those messages, though, seems slim.
