Documents pinpoint origin of foreign fighters

Now why would the Bush administration ignore this? OIL?
Saudi Arabia and Libya, both considered allies by the United States in its fight against terrorism, were the source of about 60 percent of the foreign fighters who came to Iraq in the past year to serve as suicide bombers or to facilitate other attacks, according to senior U.S. military officials.

The data comes largely from a trove of documents and computers discovered in September, when U.S. forces raided a tent camp in the desert near Sinjar, close to the Syrian border. The raid's target was an insurgent cell believed to be responsible for smuggling the vast majority of foreign fighters into Iraq.

The most significant discovery was a collection of biographical sketches that listed hometowns and other details for more than 700 fighters brought into Iraq since August 2006.

Hahaha. I'm listening to internets tubes online radio and they just reported this. You may mentally listen to the Twilight Zone theme song here.
