Half of Militants in Iraq are Saudi, Not Iranian

"The Los Angeles Times is reporting nearly half of all foreign militants targeting U.S. troops in Iraq have come from Saudi Arabia – one of Washington's closest allies in the Middle East. U.S. officials have so far refused to publicly criticize Saudi Arabia's role in Iraq, focusing instead on Iran. Democracy Now! spoke with an L.A. Times correspondent in Iraq, Ned Parker, and Toby Jones, a former Persian Gulf analyst with the International Crisis Group and history professor at Rutgers University."

Bush is trying to blame Iran, though. Just like with the 9-11 hijackers, this administration if focusing attention away from Saudi Arabia and on other nations. Does this seem suspicious to you?
