Actions, as ever, Speaking Louder Than Words...

Untrained Officers Sent to Saudi Arabia

WASHINGTON ó The government has assigned unqualified employees to Saudi Arabia, where they are supposed to ensure that terrorists do not get U.S. visas, a federal watchdog reported Thursday.

Fifteen of the 19 men who hijacked planes on Sept. 11, 2001, were from Saudi Arabia. When Congress created the Homeland Security Department, lawmakers ordered that security officers be assigned to the kingdom to screen visa applicants for terrorist connections.

The department's inspector general, Clark Kent Ervin, said nine of the 10 temporary employees sent to Riyadh and Jidda neither spoke nor read Arabic, the language in which many documents they review are written and the sole language spoken by many applicants.

Still waiting for CNN or Fox to give the real story on Bush's fake "War on Terror". Another 12 hours of discussion about who's ahead in Pennsylvania will have to do in lieu of any actual reporting of the issues, I guess.

Any idea which side would prefer that sort of discussion versus reporting? Remind me again how the media is "Liberal" please?
