MODS - not sure if this is a 'war on terror' thing because of the Al-qaida money connection, or if it's an international thing because of the
conservation of the birds of prey ...
Oh ... this has ALL the aspects of a major international conspiracy!
It looks like the Saudi royals like hunting with falcons. They love owning birds of prey and other exotic birds. And it looks like Al-qaida is the
group that smuggles the birds to them.
On the trips to the Saudi hunting camps where the birds are brought, Al-qaida and arms dealers are present for 'hunting'.
This fact was uncovered by the conservationist group, the Union for the Conservation of Raptors (UCR), (an official UN recognized watch group) and
they were going to present the information to the UN about the illegal smuggling connection between the Saudis and Al-Qaida, but they were shut out.
It also seems that there is a very real possibilty of MORE UN BRIBES being paid.
VERY interesting reading.
