Unsurprising but still disappointing

The Second Circuit Court of Appeals in New York City has ruled that family members of some of the victims of the 9/11 Terrorist Attacks cannot sue the Saudi government for its (suspected) role in the attacks:,0,6959562.story. It's a cliche at this point, but 15 of those 19 hijackers were Saudi. That says something, or it should say something, right? Well, it does to most clear-thinking people, except for those in our government (and the court system), because they continue to strenuously defend the Saudis as being our "allies" in our battle against Islamic terrorism. However, they keep running into that inconvenient fact that Saudi Arabia produces a vastly disproportionate share of the world's terrorists.

I would ask, "When will we learn?", but the answer is pretty clear that we never will.
