The Los Angeles Times reports today that according to a senior U.S. military officer and Iraqi lawmakers, about 45% of all foreign militants “targeting U.S. troops and Iraqi civilians and security forces are from Saudi Arabia.” Only 15% are from Syria and Lebanon; and 10% are from North Africa. This is based on official U.S. military figures made available to newspaper by the senior officer.
Nearly half of the 135 foreigners in U.S. detention facilities in Iraq are Saudis, he said.
This lie stacks up quite nicely with the biggest of them all..that Iraq was involved in 9/11.
Yet, they are BushCo’s BFF aren’t they?
The sick part is..the 9/11 bombers were from Saudi as well. And a section of American’s still believe Iraq was involved in 9/11 and all the bad guys in Iraq are coming from Iran and Syria.
Those ‘senior military officials’ giving us the truth better be careful…
