The US should in fact do as the sowdy says, but first launch carpet bombing campaign that targets entire mountain ranges throughout all of the enemy’s strongholds, and I mean hit em hard, powerfully hard, then declare victory and leave, with the promise that they’ll be back if they get the slightest whiff of Afghani involvement in supporting terror.

(al-Reuters) – The United States should have used the killing of Osama bin Laden to declare victory and quickly withdraw from Afghanistan and now faces an increasingly nationalist uprising in the country, a senior Saudi prince said on Wednesday.

Prince Turki al-Faisal, a former Saudi intelligence chief and ambassador to Britain and the United States, said the Obama administration had not been given enough credit for removing the al Qaeda leader, who was shot dead by U.S. special forces in Pakistan on May 1.

  1. Hmmmm……Is this the same Prince Turki al-Faisal that met with Osama Bin laden in in June 2001 in a hospital in Dubai?

    One of his friends, Bin Laden’s cousin Sheikh Suhail Ibn Mustahil Ibn Salim had become a business partner of former Texas Governor George W. Bush, in the family’s Zapata Oil and Arbusto Ltd.

    During an increased crisis between Washington and Saudi Arabia on January 12th 2002, al-Faisal met with Senator John Kerry (->) and members of a delegation from the U.S. House of Representatives, headed by Congressman David Price.

    Prince Turki Al Faisal had confirmed meetings with the Bin Laden Group and Osama bin Laden himself, several times in Saudi Arabia and Pakistan before he was stripped of his Saudi citizenship in 1994. In July 1998, as the lawsuit said, Al Faisal met Taliban leaders in Kandahar, Afghanistan and reached agreement on fresh aid from Riyad. “Prince Turki also promised to provide oil and generous financial assistance to both the Taliban in Afghanistan and Pakistan. After the meeting, 400 new pick-up trucks arrived in Kandahar for the Taliban, still bearing Saudi Arabia license plates.

  2. Psy-ops from Saudi? Who’d a thunk it? The Saudi’s have even less credibility than Ghadaffi in Libya when he played us with the ‘alleged’ death of his ‘alleged ‘ daughter . . .a ‘daughter’ who just happened to be located recently practicing medicine in the UK .
    Anything/Everything a muslim says is immediately discounted as wholesale fabrication.
