    So what did we get from the UK?...their blind allegiance/support to our "liberation" of Iraq? Seems likely to me (cannot prove this, of course).

    This sends a message to the terrorists that all they have to do is kidnap a few Americans and some Guantanamo prisoners will be freed. It's even worse that the #1 breeding ground of terrorism, Saudi Arabia, is behind all this. So much for the war on terror.

    Wow, releasing known terrorists to curry favor? That's pretty low, even for Dubya. Almost as low as swapping arms for hostages...

    The Saudis sure do seem to get whatever they want from the Bush family.
