Now you've got me thinking.
There were pictures of the "flying 19" all over the media for about 2 years. The Saudi's. These last two guys are the ones who got caught. After the initial exposure following their capture, I haven't noticed "undue" display. I haven't notice particular "stretching" to emphasize a tie to African America. It is not Africa that would be emphasized.
Maybe I missed it.
