What is Saudis’ Role in Iraq?
July 17, 2007 § 1 Comment
Here is a story from the L.A. Times attempting to “outline” Saudi Arabia’s involvement in the Iraq work. Essentially, what they are asking is are they with us or against us as Times staff writer Ned Parkers claims,
“Fighters from Saudi Arabia are thought to have carried out more suicide bombings than those of any other nationality, said the senior U.S. officer, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the subject’s sensitivity. It is apparently the first time a U.S. official has given such a breakdown on the role played by Saudi nationals in Iraq’s Sunni Arab insurgency.” (N. Parker, L.A. Times)
The Saudi Government knows of the problem, but suggests that it is doing all it can to prevent them. Gen. Mansour Turki, a Saudi spokesmen for the Interior Ministry says,
“Saudis are actually being misused. Someone is helping them come to Iraq. Someone is helping them inside Iraq. Someone is recruiting them to be suicide bombers. We have no idea who these people are. We aren’t getting any formal information from the Iraqi government,”
So there you have it ladies and gentlemen, it appears that another manhunt is upon us.
