Finally some tentative steps

Finally, the US is starting to speak forthrightly about the "war on terror". The US's Government Accountability Office has identified Islamic terrorism as having a philosophical root in Wahabism - not some hotch potch anti-western reactionary movement.

According the Daily Standard, the US intelligence agencies have no idea what Saudi Arabia is doing to either support/combat this insidious evil.

Great. How does the West support an evil regime, in the House of Saad, so that we can get a secure source of oil and then tell them to fight their own state religion? The West will someday have to make a choice. Already, there are tentative steps to reducing the West's reliance on oil. But much more needs to be done.
