Saudis Under Scrutiny

It's so good to be back after a three week hiatus. I'll try to post at least once or twice a day for the next month-until I leave to Israel.

The transcript isn't up yet, but if you want a good laugh [and a whole bunch of examples of 'red herring' reasoning errors] check out Meet the Press in a few hours so that you can read Tim Russert's hysterical interview with Tom Daschle. It was truly one for the ages.

Also, according to the Wash Post,
the FBI, in an unprecedented move that has strained relations with a close ally in the war on terrorism, has subpoenaed records for dozens of bank accounts belonging to the Saudi Embassy, part of an investigation into whether any of the hundreds of millions of dollars Riyadh spends in the United States each year end up in the hands of Muslim extremists, U.S. and Saudi officials said.
The Saudis? Never! They're our parteners in the War on Terror, aren't they? After all, didn't you see the insert they paid for in the current issue of Foreign Affairs? What a shameless PR plug. As if people reading such a publication don't know the truth? I'm terribly confused as to why they spent so much money on that-glossy and colorful pages!-but it's their money, what do I care?
