Legitimate Source?

`Kay new to the community, but not the MUN program. I have a conference in a few weeks, and I'm representing Uganda in the Security Council. I have two situations of which I am not used to facing: being with a partner (which isn't important at the moment), and proving the legitimacy of a source I happened to stumble upon. The topic I currently face is the recent missile testing in Iran along with nonproliferation, and I believe I've found a very blunt statement on where I will stand on the matter (http://english.aljazeera.net/news/middleeast/2008/07/2008791884511325.html), but I'm not sure if I can trust it. What would you guys say about this site? Is it trustworthy? Thanks.

Al Jazerra is a legit news paper that caters to the Middle Eastern region. You can trust the news articles, but keep in mind that they are written with a Middle Eastern bias.
I realise that the article is legit, but what about the feedback below it?
No, the feedback is something that you can't rely on. It only reflects the opinion of one person, as opposed to the country as a whole. You can definitely take it into consideration, but I would not base everything off of that. The best idea I think would be to look into the AU's opinion on the issue, because Uganda is most likely going to have a very similar opinion as the rest of the AU.
