WordPad, cut and paste, format

Sometimes I clip a news report, essay, etc from the Web and paste it into Wordpad for the information (not for illegal purposes). When these have URL references in them, sometimes Wordpad puts them in and sometimes it doesn’t.

Ie, Here is Bin Laden’s home page.
Here is Bin Laden’s home page http://binladenhome.net :Note this is made-up.

How do I get Wordpad to consistently give the URL? I sure don’t find it in the Help.
