To be sure, the Brojos do have to be damn careful here. This is a real person who lives in the US, and unlike all us, they are clearly identifiable people associated with this website. If The Brojos are willing to undertake this, they will have to monitor the thread VERY carefully to make sure information is coming in rather than just speculation and name calling. Libel laws certainly must come into play here if the site takes on this issue.
Actually, they are at essentially no risk.
Nearly every news website, for example, has a "comments" section with a disclaimer that views expressed are not those of the site, not verified, etc, etc. And FOX doesn't get sued every time some armchair pundit says that Obama wasn't born in the US, supports terrorism, as so on.
Hell, they already link to far more defamatory material!
