In advance of President Bush’s anticipated visit to the country later this month, Kenneth Ballen, president of Terror Free Tomorrow, a public opinion organization, shares the results of a surprising new survey of Saudi public opinion. (Christian Science Monitor )

“Fewer than 1 in 10 Saudis has a favorable opinion of Al Qaeda, and 88 percent approve the Saudi military and police pursuing Al Qaeda fighters. Only 15 percent of Saudis have a favorable opinion of bin Laden himself. (A Saudi poll late in 2003 showed 49 percent favorable.)”
