Canada's arms deal with Saudi Arabia under fire
The Globe and Mail is reportingt "the Canadian government has gone to extraordinary lengths to ensure the success of a controversial $15-billion arms deal with Saudi Arabia, a transaction drawing more scrutiny as concern grows over the kingdom’s flogging of a man with ties to Canada."
Raif Badawi is a blogger who was sentenced to ten years in prison and 1,000 lashes for blogging about free speech in Saudi Arabia. Gee didn't 15 of the 19 9/11 hijackers come to America from Saudi Arabia? Big surprise. Whistle blower Mike Springmann confirmed that the 15 Saudis were denied passports but the CIA forced him to approve their passports. Imagine that.
