It's kind of funny how some stories have to sort of bounce around for a while before they stick. On November 29th, I wrote that Nawaf Obaid's op-ed in that day's Washington Post was a warning that Saudi Arabia would back the Sunnis in Iraq. Obaid's op-ed mostly received yawns.
Today, the New York Times runs virtually the same story and it's like, holy fucking shit! The fucking Saudis are going to back the fucking Sunnis!
It's weird how that works.
