Before that, the Americans/Brits have been flying largely unscathed....That, however, has dramatically changed. Why, you might inquire...... While I've discussed this theory via private circles, this is the first I've seen of it in the "main" stream media. Cheers...todd

Two-Faced Saudis INVESTOR'S BUSINESS DAILY Posted 4/2/2007 War On Terror: We get the sense the Saudis grin and kiss us on both cheeks when we walk into their palaces, then spit on the ground the moment we leave. The latest affront is over Iraq. It turns out our "close ally" King Abdullah, in a speech before fellow Arabs, has condemned our presence there as "illegitimate." The harsh tone shocked U.S. officials who were under the impression the king was cooperating with our efforts. "In beloved Iraq, blood is shed among brothers in the shadow of an illegitimate foreign occupation," Abdullah carped at the annual Arab summit in Riyadh. Such a statement could have come from the lips of Saddam Hussein, who threatened Abdullah's regime. But removing that threat next door apparently wasn't good enough for Abdullah. He wants us infidels to remove ourselves, before the job is finished. The slight proves again our ally's duplicity, and our own naivete in continuing to trust him. It's not merely an issue of semantics. We actually thought the Saudis might have our backs in Iraq. But the reality may be that they're working against us there � and may even be sponsoring the insurgents killing our troops. Abdullah's remarks add weight to reports that Saudi is funding the insurgency next door. As we've noted, the Iraq Study Group, in a throwaway line deep in its report, stated that "funding for the Sunni insurgency comes from private individuals

within Saudi Arabia." Separately, the Associated Press has reported that the Saudis are "giving millions to Sunni insurgents in Iraq and much of the money is used to buy weapons, including shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missiles." Sunni fighters say they've bought stockpiles of Strela missiles with the Saudi cash. Strelas have been blamed in a series of attacks on U.S. helicopters in Iraq, including a CH46 Sea Knight shot down over Anbar province, which borders Saudi Arabia. The Saudis also are manning the insurgency, something we've been pointing out for the past two years. Pentagon figures show the vast majority of suicide attackers and foreign terrorists inside Iraq are Saudi citizens. If King Abdullah shares the jihadists' view that we are infidel occupiers, it should come as no surprise that he would give the nod to their attacks on our troops. No less than the chief justice of Saudi Arabia's Supreme Judicial Council has been taped exhorting young Muslims to go to Iraq to wage jihad against U.S. forces. Americans know precious little about the man we're depending on to help fight alQaida and other Muslim terrorists in Saudi Arabia. Who is King Abdullah? For starters, he's much more devout than his late brother, King Fahd. Last year he ordered Saudi newspapers to stop publishing pictures of women. He's also a Jewhating hothead, seeing "Zionist hands" behind everything bad. Not surprisingly, he supports Hamas and has let the terror group set up offices in Saudi Arabia. He also has OK'd fundraisers for families of Palestinian suicide bombers. Last week, the king called for an end to the international boycott of the new Palestinian government. The U.S. and Israel want the boycott continued. Abdullah also abruptly canceled an appearance at a White House dinner set this month in his honor. It's worth remembering that Abdullah also turned down an invitation to the White House less than four months before the 9/11 attacks. Then, as now, he was angry President Bush was siding too closely with Israel over the Palestinian issue. Within a few weeks of 9/11, Abdullah cut off ties to Washington, shocking the Bush administration. "From now on, we will protect our national interests," he told the White House through his ambassador, "regardless of where America's interests lie in the region." In essence, he was warning that from that day forward Saudis would go their way, and Americans could go to hell. The major unanswered question of 9/11 is just what was the full extent of Saudi Arabia's role. What did Abdullah know, and when did he know it? After 9/11, the Saudis expressed shock over the attacks, and vowed to help us fight the terror network they funded from its infancy. But since then, all signs indicate the Saudi government still sponsors terror. Sadly, the White House has continued to reward it. Abdullah asked for entry into the WTO and got it. He asked for visas to deploy 20,000 more young Saudi men here,

and he got them, too. State-sponsored terror substantially increases the likelihood of successful and more lethal attacks within the U.S. How many times must we be double-crossed by the Saudis before we wise up and play hardball?
