Iraq Cites Saudis As AQI Financier
BAGHDAD [MENL] -- Iraq's intelligence community has determined that Saudi
Arabia was leading a Gulf Arab effort to destabilize the government of Prime
Minister Nouri Al Maliki.
Officials said the intelligence community has assessed that Riyad was
financing the current Al Qaida offensive in Iraq, particularly in the
provinces of Anbar, Baghdad, Diyala and Nineveh. They said Saudi Arabia has
recruited other Gulf Cooperation Council states to pour money to Sunni
tribes to resist the Shi'ite-dominated Al Maliki government.
