To stanch spread of radical Islam,
Saudi Arabia woos detainees

By Hannah Allam

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia - Alarmed to find that detainees are emerging from the Guantanamo Bay prison camp and other U.S. detention centers more devoted than ever to radical Islam, Saudi Arabia is offering counseling, financial aid and even matchmaking to pull young militants away from terrorism.

To keep the former detainees from deep-pocketed militant recruiters, Saudi officials have treated them to perks that have included new cars, resort stays, job placement and help in finding brides. They've also exposed them to moderate clerics and reminded them of Islam's restrictive rules for waging holy war, or jihad.

Saudi officials said the goal is to stop the proliferation of radical ideology that they said is bred in prisons and on the Internet.

The ideology has flourished at Guantanamo and is evident among the returning Saudi detainees - even those who were moderates before they were imprisoned, Saudi officials said.

Detain without basis, refuse and/or restrict representation, torture and/or coerce, deny the right to habeus corpus.

Then be SURPRISED they become MORE radicalized?

The U.S.-led war in Iraq is the biggest factor in radicalizing Saudi youths, according to a Saudi government report.

Malefactors every single one,
intentionally dismissive incompetent criminals.
