Saudi media and their love affair with Bin Laden

When Bin Laden family members were held in Iran, Saudi media said that this is evidence of cooperation between Iranian government and Al-Qa`idah. Now, Saudi media (especially the mouthpiece of Prince Salman and his sons, Ash-Sharq Al-Awsat) are pressing for the release (and hero's welcome) of Bin Laden family members. "A daughter of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden has taken refuge in the Saudi Embassy in Tehran after eluding guards who have held her and five brothers under house arrest for eight years, a Saudi-owned newspaper reported Wednesday."
