I agree with Rall, to a point. Yes, I said I agree with Ted Rall. Hell may freeze over.
However, as always with Rall, he presents his point in a rather tasteless and over-the-top manner. There were probably a million other ways to express this view without engaging in the shock-and-awe method that is his standard.
We should not be dealing with the Saudis in the manner we are. We need to cut off all of our ties with them and recognize them for what they are: terrorists and terrorist funders.
That said, I still must chastise Rall for choosing to use such a horrifying image to make his point. He seems to thrive on throwing 9/11 in our faces and regardless of the statement he is putting across, he never, ever states his issue with the decorum that 9/11 deserves.
Rall is, and will always remain, a tasteless, talentless hack.
