RECOGNIZING THE ENEMY: One of my generally reliable moles reports that tomorrow's Washington Post will feature a piece by Tom Ricks on Saudi Arabia as the enemy. Ricks will report that a "top Pentagon advisory panel" has characterized Saudi Arabia as an enemy, and recommends that it be given an ultimatum: stop supporting terror or face seizure of the oil fields and of financial assets in the United States. The report isn't an official position, but reflects what Ricks characterizes as a view with growing currency in the Bush Administration.
Sounds like someone's getting a clue.
