More torture in the middle east, this time in Saudi Arabia, via 60 Minutes last week -- Saudi Justice?. This is an account of several westerners accused falsely of setting off car bombs in Saudi Arabia, who were tortured and falsely confessed. Only when Al Qaeda attacked western compounds in Riyadh last summer were the Saudi authorities willing to admit that it was not westerners who were the attacker, it was their fellow Saudis. More details in The Strange Saga of the Booze Bombers by the Religious Policeman, a dissident Saudi.
