Saudis now fighting in Anbar?

I see this report that four Saudi citizens were killed fighting government forces in Anbar province. I remember lots of articles about Saudi support for Sunni insurgents, but I can't remember Saudi citizens being killed before.

As for Iraq, I asked Joel Wing what up, and he responded that there is a new wave of foreign fighters there.

I can't imagine what it must be like to be a Sahwa leader living in Samarra nowadays. Their numbers are decreasing.

2 AF commanders in Europe ejected, CIA ousts head of Iran desk for being mean

Issue seems to be inability to command well, which is a step forward from the zipper/gambling/cheating/loose nuke issues that have hit other AF officers.

Meanwhile, the head of the CIA's Iran desk was sent home for being a lousy boss.
