Dept of "What's wrong with this picture?"
From the Washington Post, we read:
The FBI, in an unprecedented move that has strained relations with a close ally in the war on terrorism, has subpoenaed records for dozens of bank accounts belonging to the Saudi Embassy...
In other news, the Washington Post (dateline 1943) has a story that the US has strained relations with "a close ally in WWII" by bombing Japanese positions in the Pacific. I know Saudi Arabia paid for a number of ads touting themselves as "our partners in peace", but do you believe everything you hear on the radio?

Saudi Arabia: home of fifteen of nineteen.
Saudi Arabia: source of most of the funding for the jihadist movement.
Saudi Arabia: whose ambassador's wife channeled funds to the 9/11 attackers.
Saudi Arabia: origin of more state-sponsored anti-American khutbas than I can shake a stick at.

If Saudi Arabia is a "close ally in the war on terrorism", what in hell would an enemy look like?
