The graphic alone is worth linking but the text of the article is the real punchline.

Wow, tell us what you really think.
"Imagine that the Ku Klux Klan suddenly becomes the ruler of Texas, and has at its disposal all the wealth acquired from the sale of Texas oil. They then use this money to build up a network of well-endowed schools and colleges all over Christendom to preach their particular brand of Christianity. You will have an approximate idea of what has happened in the Islamic world. Because of oil money, the Saudis, who are Wahhabi, they use this money to establish a whole network of schools and colleges all over the Islamic world."
Now some folks in the pentagon are figuring out that Saudi Arabia is an enemy. It's nice that it's on the front page of the Post and will therefore come up for discussion among opinion makers but... Dan Quayle is on this board and so is Newt Gingrich.
Oh well. Iraq can make Saudi oil irrelevant.
It will be so delightful if GWB ends up ridding the world of the regimes in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia, thereby doing more for women's rights than any politician in the last 70 years. If Iran falls on it's own just think, suddenly millions of women will be more free.

Although I think DailyPudit is right to demand "and where is CNN?"

I can only hope that soon working in airport security will be more shameful than being a used car salesman. The funniest part was that the security chief defended this.
“If GI Joe was carrying a replica then it had to be taken from him.”
The mind boggles. If our security rests in the hands of people so inflexible and so ungodly lacking in common sense... we're all doomed.
