Saudis Quickly Kill Leading Al Qaeda Figure In Riyadh


by Steve

Good for the Saudis. Hours after an Al Qaeda-affiliated group claimed credit for beheading an American captive, Saudi security forces in downtown Riyadh surrounded several leading figures of Al Qaeda in Saudi Arabia and killed them in a raid. I must say that it is interesting that the Saudis were able so quickly after the terrible news about Paul Johnsonís death to locate, surround, and kill the leader of Al Qaeda in Saudi Arabia. He was right under their noses in downtown Riyadh, and just like that within hours they found and killed him.

How efficient. It makes you wonder why they canít do that all the time.
