Saudi Arabian Women at a Football Match

During a Gulf-Cup, semi-final football match between Saudi Arabia and UAE, held in Abu-Dhabi, some Saudi college girls were spotted among the fans. Photos of the girls were featured on the front pages of Saudi newspapers the next day. There were heavy comments on their choice to be in a stadium full of men, plus they were accused of ruining the country’s image by avoiding their responsibilities and duties as Saudi citizens.

There Are No Hereditary Kings in America

The federal appeals court in Cincinnati, Ohio could rule against US president Bush. Today the court is hearing arguments in a case that began last year.
From the NY Times: “Last August, a federal judge found that the president of the United States broke the law, committed a serious felony and violated the Constitution.”
Judge Taylor of the United States District Court in Detroit wrote, among other things, that US president Bush had “undisputedly violated the First and Fourth Amendments of the Constitution.” She added the line “There are no hereditary kings in America.”
The US National Security agency had “been monitoring the phone calls and e-mail messages of Americans for more than four years without first obtaining warrants from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, as required by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.”
President Nixon was impeached for wiretapping. The article notes that Nixon “caused wiretaps to be placed on the telephones of 17 persons without having obtained a court order authorizing the tap, as required by federal law; in violation of Sections 241, 371 and 2510-11 of the Criminal Code.
President Bush could probably be charged with wiretapping not 17 but thousands of people."
