One Hand-Holding Man Date and Look What Happens

If you were President of the United States, and the largest terrorist attack on American soil had happened on your watch, perpetrated by 19 hijackers, 15 of whom were Saudi Arabian, subscribers to a radical Islamic sect called Wahabbi which has its roots in Saudi Arabia, and members of a terrorist network called al-Qaida led by a Saudi Arabian by the name of Osama bin Laden, and you had repeatedly claimed to support both freedom and women’s rights, yet Saudi Arabia was one of the worst offenders on both counts, what would you do?

Well, if you were President Bush, you would choose to relax travel restrictions between Saudi Arabia and the United States.
US Ambassador James C. Oberwetter says changes in the US visa process would ease travel between the States and Saudi Arabia.

The ambassador’s comments come in the wake of the Saudi-US Summit and before a high-profile, 63-member Saudi business mission leaves for the US next week.

“Last week’s visit by Crown Prince Abdullah to the United States has given a major boost to the bilateral relations,” said Oberwetter. “I am very satisfied with the outcome of the royal visit,” he said, referring to the joint communique issued after the talks held by Crown Prince Abdullah and the US President George W. Bush.


Oberwetter said once the new system was in place, it will ensure long-term stays for Saudi businessmen or tourists in the US with multiple-entry visas. “It will also reduce the time lag for processing visa applications and interviews,” he said, without detailing the proposed system.
Superb. How safe you feelin’ now, all you Bush-voting pricks who were so sure that he was the only one who could protect America? I hope you’ve realized by now that the only thing Bush is interested in protecting is the investments of all his rich fucking pals.
