    Thanks a million!

    Funny, it was just yesterday that I "stumbled" on the news of Bandar resigning "for personal reasons" in the beginning of July...

    The articles about Bandar's resignation suspected a shift towards Abdullah and implied that after 9/11 Bandar had been losing some of his power with Crown Prince Abdullah using his own spokesman instead of Bandar (although Bandar did get to see the 2003 Iraq war plans even before Colin Powell got to see them).

    The articles on Bandar mention that his father Sultan is very ill with stomach cancer and may not last long...

    If being anti-child-sodomy is now considered the partisan position, then I'm going to be the biggest f---ing partisan on the planet.. - Hunter
