World's Largest Supporters of Terrorism?





... take a nice clean, bright white towel, wrap it neatly around a huge, smelly, dripping piece of Sunni and what do you get? My, my ...! You get the most active supporter of Terrorism in the world! A Saudi Arabian! You know those guys, don't ya? They have friends in high places - the White House, for instance!

By SALAH NASRAWI , CAIRO, Egypt Dec 8, 2006 (AP)— "Private Saudi citizens are giving millions of dollars to Sunni insurgents in Iraq and much of the money is used to buy weapons, including shoulder fired anti-aircraft missiles, according to key Iraqi officials and others familiar with the flow of cash."

"In one recent case, an Iraqi official said $25 million in Saudi money went to a top Iraqi Sunni cleric and was used to buy weapons, including Strela, a Russian shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missile. The missiles were purchased from someone in Romania, apparently through the black market, he said. " ... remember the American jet that recently crashed?

"Last week, a Saudi who headed a security consulting group close to the Saudi government, Nawaf Obaid, wrote in the Washington Post that Saudi Arabia would use money, oil and support for Sunnis to thwart Iranian efforts to dominate Iraq if American troops pulled out. The Saudi government denied the report and fired Obaid."

... with "friends" like these, who needs ... Oh! Never mind ...

I've got a post ready to go and the Saudi terror funding is one of the things I comment on. We're screwed until we confront the Saudis.

It was getting a bit "smelly" around here, so I cleaned up a bit!
