What Do You Expect Them to Say?

by Jonah Goldberg

A fairly silly story — especially for the normally excellent Peter Baker — in The Washington Post today tries to conjure sympathy for the Saudis deported after 9/11. Now, I’m sure some of these guys are perfectly decent people. But what do you expect Saudis, especially deported ones, to say? “Gosh, you know, you guys are really lucky you got me out of there when you did. Another few days and I would have dumped fifty thousand gallons of cyanide in your water supply. Damn. Maybe next time. Lord knows your State Department gives out Visas like KFC coupons.”
