Insurgents = Saudi's

The NYT, tells us once again, that the main contingent of 'freedom fighters' in Iraq comes from..Wait for it.

Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia and Libya, both considered allies by the United States in its fight against terrorism, were the source of about 60 percent of the foreign fighters who came to Iraq in the past year to serve as suicide bombers or to facilitate other attacks, according to senior American military officials.

The data come largely from a trove of documents and computers discovered in September, when American forces raided a tent camp in the desert near Sinjar, close to the Syrian border. The raid's target was an insurgent cell believed to be responsible for smuggling the vast majority of foreign fighters into Iraq.

They also go on to point out another obvious fact: The records also underscore how the insurgency in Iraq remains both overwhelmingly Iraqi and Sunni.-How many times does it have to be printed in black and white before BushCo will quit filling our ears with bs?

Your guess is as good as mine. But I do notice that Iran isn't even 'on the map' so to speak..
