Remarkable stuff in the papers if you read past the lead paragraphs. CIA says we’re in just as much danger now as just before 9-11. In other words, the war on Afghanistan and all the police state measures have done no good. They have identified most of the major funders of Al Quaeda, who are almost all wealthy Saudis. Most of the 9-11 terrorists were Saudis. But we’re about to wage war on Iraq, while Saudi Arabia is our staunch ally. Then we know that North Korea has all the weapon programs that Saddam is feared to possibly be about to develop, but we are taking a diplomatic approach to them. Could this have something to do with oil or the lack thereof? Aaaargh! I think we need an opposition party!
