There he goes again!
I never thought we would accuse Michael Moore of understatement, but now we must. In his movie Fahrenheit 9/11, Moore discusses the close financial relationship between Family Bush and the Saudi princes. You know, the Bin Ladens allowed to fly out of America while the rest of us remained grounded, the Carlyle Group, etc. Now the NY Times reports that key Saudi prisoners at Guantanamo were sent back to the Saudi government in a secret three-way deal involving the release of Brits.
One Defense Department official, quoted by the Times, said, "Why are we doing this for these guys when we haven't done this for other, better allies? We were just told to do it."
C'mon Michael. Toughen up. And how can we get some of that Carlyle Group stock?
