Saudi and other Arabs working for the U.S. company Boeing - CBS
The compound houses Saudi and other Arabs working for the U.S. company Boeing, reports CBS News Correspondent Tom Fenton.

In no way can I keep up. From the little I read and saw on CNN's anchor reports, CNN's interviews with the people it gave me the impression that this was a group of Iraqi civilians with no connection to the U.S. invasion.

I did a DU search and didn't find Boeing mentioned in the last week. What is Boeing doing in Iraq? Is this a new group just brought in or have they always been there?

Why don't reporters address these kinds of obvious questions when they publish a report? Why don't editors catch it and make the reporters add this kind of obvious info?

1. Outsourcing?
I'm sure they've been cleared by the CIA.

2. The explosions were in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, not Iraq.
Saudia Airways is a major Boeing customer. As is the Saudi government, due to the Saudi purchases of F-15s over the years.

3. I'm overloaded! Thanks for setting me straight. I've gotten mixed up with
so many bombings! When it just happens I get so upset and frustrated sometimes I'm not thinking clearly.
