Al Gore, former vice president of the United States, in Saudi Arabia: Gore Laments U.S. ‘Abuses’ Against Arabs.

JIDDAH, Saudi Arabia - Former Vice President Al Gore told a mainly Saudi audience on Sunday that the U.S. government committed “terrible abuses” against Arabs after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, and that most Americans did not support such treatment.

Gore said Arabs had been “indiscriminately rounded up” and held in “unforgivable” conditions. The former vice president said the Bush administration was playing into al-Qaida’s hands by routinely blocking Saudi visa applications.

“The thoughtless way in which visas are now handled, that is a mistake,” Gore said during the Jiddah Economic Forum. “The worst thing we can possibly do is to cut off the channels of friendship and mutual understanding between Saudi Arabia and the United States.”

Gore told the largely Saudi audience, many of them educated at U.S. universities, that Arabs in the United States had been “indiscriminately rounded up, often on minor charges of overstaying a visa or not having a green card in proper order, and held in conditions that were just unforgivable.”

“Unfortunately there have been terrible abuses and it’s wrong,” Gore said. “I do want you to know that it does not represent the desires or wishes or feelings of the majority of the citizens of my country.”

Gore speaks of Arabs being "held in conditions that were just unforgivable" in a land where Third Country Nationals (TCNs) are treated as slaves; women are the property of their guardian: a father, a brother or a husband; alcohol possession is met with a public beheading; stealing leaves one with only one hand; and the Religious Police -- the Mutaween -- enforce the backward and barbaric Sharia laws.

The Saudi regime is the very nerve center of what we fight. Yet, Al Gore consoles them while spitting at his own government. In a party filled with opportunistic, unprincipled and defeatist politicians, Al Gore has earned the distinction of being the most despicable of them all.

On the upside, he just lost any Jewish vote he might have had...

Might not ding him locally, but forget running on any national platform...

I soooo love it when stupid politicos shoot themselves in the foot, go "huh? wtf was that?", and continue to pull the trigger again and again until it goes click...

Some people are still alive simply because it's illegal to kill them.

Is it still breaking the law to overstay your visa? Or not having you green card in order? Again the demoshits just letting everyone stay and thumbing there noses at the law. And how is it that they break the law but we indiscrimitaly round them up? They broke the law, we had a reason to put them in jail. And yes jail should be deplorable. It kinda makes you not want to go back.

What an asshat.

Ask him where his daddy was the day Congress voted on the Civil Rights Act.

Just think where we would be if this douchebag had become President. The Democrats should lose their right to nominate a candidate to run for president. Look at their track record over the past 3 decades. McGovern, Mondale, Dukakis, Gore and Kerry. Five little losers all in a row. Let's throw in Jimmy Carter for good measure, and how about the incomparable Slick Willie?
