Paul Johnson's Killers

Reports are sketchy, but apparently Paul Johnson's killers are dead.

After Johnson's body was found, Saudi officials "swooped in" on the neighborhood where the killers were.

My question, while realizing it is still early, is this: Why didn't they swoop in a lot f@cking earlier?

That would give the appearance that they give a damn about westerners

That same question arose in my mind, followed immediately by the answer, "The Saudis are riding a tiger they fed and nurtured until it grew large enough to destroy them. Now they are clinging onto it's back in desparation, doing as little as possible to upset the tiger."

It is proving yet again as has been shown over and over in history, you reap what you sow.

I'm pretty sure they didn't know which 'hood these thugs were in until it was too late. I can't imagine sitting idly by until something horrendous went down.

Isn't it amazing that now they are saying the body wasn't found, even though they supposedly used the eye witness' description and license plate number to catch these guys?? Cover ups piss me off!

The reason the Saudis waited is probably due to their position as the world's number one terrorist state. I guess they wanted to get their money's worth. bastards...
