Saudi Chief Justice Approves Killing in Iraq

Apparently, Sheik Saleh Al Luhaidan, holding a very influential position in the Saudi government, has been encouraging men to enter the fight in Iraq during his sermons.

This really is just another symptom of the overwhelming problem we have with Saudi Arabia. They play nice to us in person and in front of the cameras, but then when they are back home and speaking in tongues that Americans don't understand, they let it all hang out; they preach some of the most provocative, vile anti-American sentiments.

The government is very secretive of how it approaches the Saudis. It doesn't seem to castigate them for anything, and reveals very little to the American public about its relationship with the monarchy.

I may never understand why our government takes the approach it does with Saudi Arabia, but I certainly hope we stop putting up with such nonsense at some point.
