THE WASHINGTON POST GETS IT: They have an article headlined “Report: Terror Funds Flow Through Saudi Arabia”, with this opening paragraph:

The Bush administration’s efforts to cut off funds for international terrorism are destined to fail until it confronts Saudi Arabia, whose leaders have tolerated some of its wealthy citizens raising millions of dollars a year for al Qaeda, according to a new report from an influential foreign policy organization.

Of course, near the end is this paragraph:

The report acknowleged that criticizing Saudi Arabia publicly and demanding a crackdown on Islamic banks, charities and wealthy sponsors of al Qaeda could create a backlash that would jeoprodize the survival of the Saudi government.

And this is a bad thing??
