News of Concern to Green Eagle

Thanks to Talking Points Memo for covering this story, of vital interest to Green Eagle:

"Saudi Arabian officials have reportedly arrested a vulture suspected of being a Mossad spy, after the bird, tagged by Israeli scientists, flew into Saudi territory today...according to Haaretz, "residents and local reporters told Saudi Arabia's Al-Weeam newspaper that the matter seemed to be a 'Zionist plot.'"

All Green Eagle can say about this is, he'd better not hear of them detaining a parrot, or he is going to fly right over there, and give them a bite that they will not soon forget.  And believe me, Green Eagle does not threaten bites casually.  They have been warned.  For their own safety, he hopes they are listening.

Our little avian brother, the Arctic Tern, travels to Antarctica and back each year.
A little bird told me he spies for Santa Claus.

Someone should point out to the Saudis that vultures would scarcer if their regime - rated among the ten most despotic in the world yet given twice the US military support as given to Israel - would only stop chopping bits off people for petty crimes.

Just a suggestion.

I'm glad you realize that what you said is "just a suggestion." I wouldn't want to think you have lost so much contact with reality that you actually thought anyone in our government would do anything about that.
