Looks like we'll have to wait if Interpol has their way.

Wonder if Chavez will offer him asylum?

I don't think a foreigner can be prosecuted for treason. The DOJ is thinking of prosecuting him for espionage though. I'm still skeptical about the success of such a strategy.

For us to leave our secrets so insecure and scream when someone gets their hands on them is akin to walking down the street buck naked and accusing people who look at you of being peeping Tom's.

All of this talk about information leaking makes me think about my memory.

Asylum sounds like the right place for that pervert.

On page 2, In December 2005, the Saudi king expressed his anger that the Bush administration had ignored his advice against going to war. According to a cable from the American Embassy in Riyadh, the king argued “that whereas in the past the U.S., Saudi Arabia and Saddam Hussein had agreed on the need to contain Iran, U.S. policy had now given Iraq to Iran as a ‘gift on a golden platter.’ ”

As for Abdullah's knowledge of the Mideast, I dare say he knew quite a bit more than Dubya.

You guys know why we had 'infidel' troops in the 'Holy Land', right?

Oil. If Iraq, Kuwait, and Saudi Arabia didn't have oil, we wouldn't give them the time of day, much less our troops.
