Aiding and abetting

Charlie J. breathlessly reports that the U.S. government has named Saudi Arabia as a major source of terrorist funding. (

Well, duh.

His Amen Corner promptly launched into a fusillade of comments, most of the "well, duh" variety, but some of which are plucking the same old same old "Evil Liberals Blaming Halliburton" string.

So this is as good a time as any to point out that Halliburton -- like the murderous Saudi-funded fundamentalists who are, even now, planning further attacks against the free West -- is neck-deep in Saudi oil money too. See here and here and here and here, and especially here. What's more, Halliburton's work as an oil-field contractor plays a direct role in increasing the revenues of the Saudi oil family, which is tantamount to aiding and abetting terrorism.

As of this writing (12:35 pm Pacific Daylight Time), there's one word that has yet to appear in that thread. That word is "conservation" -- because if Charlie J. ever breathed the tiniest hint of an iota of a smidgen of a speck of the merest wisp of a suggestion that maybe we in the free West should think about using less fucking oil as a way to make a dent in international terrorism, his hard-fought position as one of the Republican Party's most cherished cheerleaders would be in serious jeopardy.
