god bless the freedom of information act, may it all come out sooner than later

"WASHINGTON - Newly released government records reveal previously undisclosed flights from Las Vegas and elsewhere and point to a more active role by the FBI in aiding some Saudis in their departure just after Sept. 11, 2001.."

"The FBI documents left open the possibility that some departing Saudis had information relevant to the Sept. 11 investigation."

That's about as conclusive as

"There has been no evidence that the consumption of fatty foods is not linked to homocidal behavior."

There was enough of an outcry about racial profiling following 9/11 - prominent Saudi families and especially relatives on Bin Laden would be likely targets for hate crimes from a shocked and outraged American public.

I would have feared for my life, too.  If it was within my power to get an FBI escort out of the country for myself and my family, you'd better believe I would have.

It appears to me that the Houston Chronicle is serving red herring tonight.
