I'm disappointed, but I'm not surprised that some Federal court dismissed the 9/11 lawsuits against the slippery, two-faced Saudi government today.
Just because Bin Laden hates the Saudi Royals as well as hating us, doesn't mean that the Saudi Ruling Princes are anywhere near totally on our side.
Their brand of Islam wants everyone else to join them and obey their ways, or DIE!.
But not really "join" them. According to an old friend of this LBPD who's lived there for years, the Princes and their buddies break all sorts of "rules" of Islam, including like drinking the best single malts, smoking the best herb and hashish, and importing large harems of some of the most exquisite global "call girls" petrodollars can buy. It's a party!
Jim Hightower explains the good old Saudi Royalty pretty well here:
"Not a few of them wallow in conspicuous consumption, which includes drinking, gambling, consorting with prostitutes, and other violations of strict Islamic law that the nation's 22 million ordinary citizens would have their hands chopped off for violating."
But we WILL continue to kiss their asses nonetheless. No matter whose party has their dude (or dudett) in the White House.
This battle is just beginning...
