Interesting story and interesting source, our buddies the Saudi's do not like us all that much.. but once again it points to the evils of religious extremism, whether it be Islam, fundamental christian or Unifimoonism. http://today.reuters.com/news/artic...19629188_RTRUKOC_0_US-IRAQ-SAUDI-FIGHTERS.xml WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Most al Qaeda fighters in Iraq are from Saudi Arabia and Libya and many are university-aged students, said a study released on Wednesday by researchers at the U.S. Army's West Point military academy. The study was based on 606 personnel records collected by al Qaeda in Iraq and captured by coalition troops in October. It includes data on fighters who entered Iraq, largely through Syria, between August 2006 and August 2007. The researchers at West Point's Combating Terrorism Center found that 41 percent of the fighters were Saudi nationals. Libyan nationals accounted for the second largest group entering Iraq in that time period with about 19 percent of the total, followed by Syrians and Yemenis each at 8 percent, Algerians with 7 percent and Moroccans at 6 percent.
