Vice President Gore is probably collecting lots of cash nowadays in speaking fees. There's nothing wrong with that, of course. But it would be interesting to know who paid Gore to travel to Saudi Arabia, the breeding ground of Islamic extremism, to accuse America of committing "terrible abuses" against Arabs after September 11. Who exactly invited him and who paid his expenses and fees? I'm sure Gore, who was an advocate for transparency while in government, would gladly release this information if asked by the media.
