In one of the least-read issues of the year, the New York Times today headlines this story:

Saudi Arabia and Libya, both considered allies by the United States in its fight against terrorism, were the source of about 60 percent of the foreign fighters who came to Iraq in the past year to serve as suicide bombers or to facilitate other attacks, according to senior American military officials.
The Bush administration is expected to immediately issue trade sanctions and threats of military force. Exactly as they have done with their own far more tenuous hints and allegations that Iranians are involved in stirring up trouble, for some reason, against a government stocked with long-time friends of theirs that clearly wants to be an ally.
