Well, for those that think that Saudi Arabia is a trusted ally in the War Against Islamofacist Terror, this little ditty from Reuters should make one pause and realize that at best, the Saudi's have just not actually done the terrorism themselves.
Afterall, the Saudi government was one of only two nations to recognize the Taliban government of Afghanistan as the United States and allies were liberating the nation from the brutal fanatics. The other nation was Pakistan.
Terrorism experts such as Steve Emerson have been warning that the Saudis have been financing the building of mosques thoughout the world and of course the United States. With that funding comes Wahabi clerics, and their narrow view of Islam.
So, these programs of "sorcery" are nothing but horoscope shows. Kind of like having someone like the late Joyce Jillson giving horoscopes on television. Ooohhh! How scary!
But, to people that have wielded so much power, the Wahabi fanatics, everything that is not from their interpetation of Islam is a perversion. And of course should be dealt with by the sword.
I have always thought we should not be so chummy with the Saudis. I do not think that they can be completely trusted. But we are in a rock and a hard place. The best that we can hope is that some in the royal family can get some very minimal reform. Otherwise, there could be another Iranian-like revolution by even more fanatical groups.
One more reason to start throwing the kitchen sink to get us off the foreign oil. And yes, that includes offshore drilling and development of ANWR.
We can not continue to deal with nations such as Saudi Arabia in which there is a debate on whether or not television executives should be put to death for having very timid programming that-HORRORS-may even produce a laugh!
