And they flew some planes into the World Trade Center, too

When it comes to oppressing women, there are few places as disgusting as Saudi Arabia. Three years ago, you'll recall, fifteen schoolgirls died in a fire when the Saudi religious police would not allow them to exit because they were not wearing appropriate Islamic dress. Now, Saudi Consultative Council member Mohammad al-Zulfa is in all kinds of trouble simply because he has asked for a discussion of lifting the ban on women drivers in Saudi Arabia. To do so would mean that women could come and go as they please, expose their eyes and wind up "interacting with strange men."

You will also recall the loud protests from George W. Bush and Laura Bush when the schoolgirls were murdered by their countrymen.

Just kidding. Saudi Arabia is our friend.


Your voice is coming on strong. Snarky too. Yum.
