There are a lot of things that are different now, and one that has gone by almost unnoticed--but it's huge--is that by complete mutual agreement between the U.S. and the Saudi government we can now remove almost all of our forces from Saudi Arabia. Their presence there over the last 12 years has been a source of enormous difficulty for a friendly government. It's been a huge recruiting device for al Qaeda. In fact if you look at bin Laden, one of his principle grievances was the presence of so-called crusader forces on the holy land, Mecca and Medina. I think just lifting that burden from the Saudis is itself going to open the door to other positive things.
Full interview here.

This is exactly what Ron Paul is been saying when he tries to teach us about blowback.

Blowback - "the unintended consequences of the US government's international activities that have been kept secret from the American people."

Wake up, folks! Ron Paul has been saying the truth all along!

Pretty sure, you could eliminate "international" from that statement.

Wolfowitz is an interesting guy IIRC has an undergrad degree in math from Univ. of Chicago and went on to get a Phd in poli sci. Speaks like 5 languages, including Arabic which he taught himself after he got out of school.

Yeah, this is old news but for some reason the other neoconservatives completely ignore these facts.
