News That Really Isn't News

Bush and Bandar

In George W. Bush's last press conference, he mentioned al-Qaeda at least thirty times, insisting that they were the main cause of our troubles in Iraq. When you actually look at the numbers, this group is responsible for about 10% of the misery in Iraq. The LA Times reported today about where most of the suicide bombers come from : Saudi Arabia. Are they al-Qaeda ? Hard to tell when they blow themselves up into tiny pieces. I think it is likely that they are Wahhabi, though. In any case it seems that country that provides most of these outsiders in the Iraq War is Saudi Arabia, supposedly our staunch allies. To be fair, I would say this simply points out how different a "War on Terrorists" really is and how misbegotten it is to attack a whole country's government. It's really only smaller groups, not a country's army in total.

Do you think that these are sponsored by the Saudi State or are groups unto their own?

That's exactly my point. These are not sponsored by the state, but are wild fundamentalist nuts, not a part of any Saudi Army or Intelligence.

You are exactly right Jim we can't count a whole government terrorists for the fault of a few.

example would be; holding all Americans responsible for the sins of the higher ups.
