To stanch spread of radical Islam, Saudi Arabia woos detainees

Alarmed to find that detainees are emerging from the Guantanamo Bay prison camp and other U.S. detention centers more devoted than ever to radical Islam, Saudi Arabia is offering counseling, financial aid and even matchmaking to pull young militants away from terrorism. To keep the former detainees from deep-pocketed militant recruiters, Saudi officials have treated them to perks that have included new cars, resort stays, job placement and help in finding brides. Theyve also exposed them to moderate clerics and reminded them of Islams restrictive rules for waging holy war, or jihad.
