Bush's new partners - the UAE

February 21 10:28 PM

A follow up to my previous post, let's take a quick look at some data about the United Arab Emirates ...
  • The UAE was one of three countries in the world to recognize the Taliban as the legitimate government of Afghanistan.
  • The UAE has been a key transfer point for illegal shipments of nuclear components to Iran, North Korea and Lybia.
  • According to the FBI, money was transferred to the 9/11 hijackers through the UAE banking system.
  • After 9/11, the Treasury Department reported that the UAE was not cooperating in efforts to track down Osama Bin Laden's bank accounts.
And Since I dont like it when people make wild baseless claims, here are some links:

CNN
LA Times

I honestly believe that if you have any loyalty to the President now, it's nothing more than blind loyalty and misplaced faith. Other than actually growing horns and eating a baby live on TV, I dont know what he would have to do to make some people sit up and at least say "Wait a minute, somethings not right here!"
