Does anyone else think that the US administration's "jumping up and down and pointing" immediate indictment of Al Quaida as the culprits behind the Saudi Arabia attack is reminiscent of the kid who breaks Mom's antique lamp and then frames his little brother?
Has Al Quaida even taken responsibility for this attack? If they were responsible, it would seem that -- as in the past -- they would have made their involvement known fairly quickly.
If our intelligence is so advanced that it can so accurately predict an attack in Saudi Arabia (and it wasn't a mere warning if the US embassies and offices were all cleared a day in advance) why wasn't it better prior to 9/11 or in Baghdad where attacks remain numerous and unpredictable?
I am sure that I am not the only one who wonders if the Bush administration, finding itself unable to publicly oppose its friends in the Saudi Royal family, has taken a back door approach to either coerce cooperation or to make the Saudi government look more sympathetic (a victim, rather than an enabler).
