Hundreds of Saudi ‘suicide bombers’ languish in Iraqi jails
Source: Azzaman

Hundreds of Saudis who sneaked into Iraq to carry out suicide bombing now languish in Iraqi jails, said Iraqi National Security Adviser Mufaq al-Rubaai.

He said 160 of them have already been sentenced and the rest are awaiting trial.

He did not specify the type of punishment, but Iraqi courts usually pass death sentences with regard to cases involving violence and resistance of U.S. and Iraqi troops.

Saudi Arabia is constructing a massive fence along its borders with Iraq to prevent its national crossing into the country.

Rabaai said many more Saudis who were used as “suicide bombers” have died in Iraq.

2. Saudis again?
15 of the 19 9/11 attackers carried Saudi passports.

It looks like Saudi Arabia supports and sponsors terrorism. So why aren't we bombing the hell out of them? Oh, yeah, I forgot...the Saudi Royal Family and the Bush Family are pals and business partners...

How this relationship escapes the average American is beyond me... :grr:

3. The war on terror is a joint venture:
Buscho provide the troops and their "alllies" provide the terrorists. Then they make a killing on no-bid military contracts and rocketing oil prices.

It's a win-win situation (except of course for us little people caught in the middle).
