You know the Islamic Saudi Academy: the one that teaches mainstream Islamic concepts such as the killing of apostates and adulterers. Patrick Poole reports in “What Virginia’s Islamic Academy Doesn’t Want You to Know” at Pajamas Media, June 13:
The Bush administration considers the Saudi government to be one of our allies in the War on Terror, and that support extends to the Islamic Saudi Academy as well. Cinnamon Stillwell recently noted an article in the Mount Vernon Gazette that reported 22 soldiers from Ft. Belvoir had recently graduated from the Islamic Saudi Academy”s “Arabic as a Second Language” program. This means that the school is not only being funded by the Saudi government, but also our own government. Deputy Assistant Secretary of The Army Dr. Lynn Heirakuji and the U.S. Army”s Deputy Assistant for Foreign Languages Erol Smith attended the graduation ceremonies.
No doubt we”re all grateful that our government is so adept at identifying who our enemies really are.
Patrick has much more — about criminal activities going on in the school, and more official indifference. Read it all.
