Surprise! Saudis Behind Al Qaida

All the news that's fit to print- or that would have been fit to print about eight years ago, since everyone knew it then, from the New York Times:

"WASHINGTON — Documents gathered by lawyers for the families of Sept. 11 victims provide new evidence of extensive financial support for Al Qaida and other extremist groups by members of the Saudi royal family...

"The Saudis and their defenders in Washington have long denied links to terrorists, and they have mounted an aggressive and, so far, successful campaign to beat back the allegations in federal court based on a claim of sovereign immunity."

"Defenders in Washington." That would be, in more straightforward terms, "Republicans."

By the way, anyone who didn't know this years ago must have spent most of the Bush Administration on the Appalachian Trail.
