Traitors in our midst

Reader comment on item: What Riyadh Buys [in Washington]

Submitted by Glenn Klotz (United States), Dec 11, 2002 at 09:38

It seems what we have are a bunch of U.S. citizens who have confused loyalty to one's boss or employer (the Saudis) with loyalty to one's nation (the U.S.) Considering the fact that in this case the Saudis have shown themselves by their acts to be less then friendly or even cooperative in our "War on Terrorism," one could conclude that these individuals are the agents of a hostile foreign power. By definition then they could be classified as TRAITORS. Normally during war, traitors are arrested and jailed and sometimes executed. The problem is that in this case one of these agents might be the President of the U.S. The whole sad state of affairs reminds me of that 60's movie "The Manchurian Candidate."
