Most Suicide Bombers in Iraq Come from Saudi Arabia

(note, this was originally posted here; my friends, we must be vigilant always: already the news media is repeating the fraudulent Iran-insurgency connection. We cannot allow president Bush to continue to spread this lie)


Today's L.A. Times confirms that most foreign fighters and suicide bombers in Iraq are actually from Saudi Arabia, NOT Syria or Iran:
Although Bush administration officials have frequently lashed out at Syria and Iran, accusing it of helping insurgents and militias here, the largest number of foreign fighters and suicide bombers in Iraq come from a third neighbor, Saudi Arabia, according to a senior U.S. military officer and Iraqi lawmakers.
White House Press Corps, are you listening? Personally, I would like to see the White House Press Corps do its job and ask the president to explain why he supports military action against Iran, when Saudi Arabia is responsible for more suicide bombers than anyone else.

Since we can't contact the press corps directly, this is a perfect opportunity to Write a letter to the editor of your local paper.
