They Were Only Following Orders...

EDDAH, 23 September 2005 — The Saudi High Commission for Relief was granted immunity yesterday from litigation in three lawsuits stemming from the Sept. 11 attacks on the United States.
US District Judge Richard Casey found that Interior Minister Prince Naif and Riyadh Governor Prince Salman, president of the High Commission, were not personally liable since they were acting as agents of the Saudi government.

The lawsuits had made baseless charges that the High Commission, which had played a big role in the reconstruction of Bosnia, and the princes had sponsored terror with Saudi funds under their direction.

It appears that the Saudis got away with it AGAIN. Although I voted for Bush, I now wonder about his troubling connections with the House of Saud.

It's time we develop and implement a energy source that will allow us to disconnect once and for all from this malignancy that holds us in energy thrall.

    Eleanor,

    When I read comments such as

    "It's time we develop and implement a energy source that will allow us to disconnect once and for all from this malignancy that holds us in energy thrall,"

    I always wonder who "we" and "us" are supposed to mean, and what "they" are supposed to do. Maybe I just have an aversion to such collective terms.

    I'm referring to a problem on which I ruminate more or less continually: I envision a road of capitalism that the government should have adhered to from the beginning, and I see that we have diverged from it more and more as time has gone by. Obviously, it would have been easier to remain on it at every juncture than to largely ignore it, as has been done. Now, when I discuss issues such as these, I necessarily contemplate how to "cut across" in order to get back to it.

    In short, I don't want to see the government involved in the issues that you discuss at all. But since it's already involved, how does one remove it?
