I was forwarded this.  Please ignore the political content.  I tried to
watch the video clip in my totally standard Lenny, with iceweasel


and I can't believe the result.  The video skips and freezes, the sound
hiccups and repeats like a broken record.  It even left the sound system
repeating garbage after I had told iceape to stop and closed the tab.

No hiccuping in IW 3.0.5 and Flash 10.0r15.

I tried to download the clip, but all there is are windows executables
(*.exe) , so I canceled the downloads, but it seems a download continued.

Does anyone know anything about this site?  Is it a virus download?
Talk about a hostile web site!

The exe files are self-extracting zip files, simple as that.
