It is noteworthy that the head of Saudi (foreign) intelligence (this is the apparatus that founded, trained, and produced Bin Laden and his gang of fanatics over the years--and with US cooperation during the Afghanistan war of the 1980s), Prince Nawwaf Ibn `Abdul-`Aziz, was sacked yesterday. I find it interesting that he was ousted the day after the explosive revelations about Saudi intelligence work through the Az-Zaman media Empire (see my post from yesterday). I will have something to say about that later.
