You might not like the source, but there is no doubt that this has been an ongoing problem. Probably, a lot of the detainees are Al Qaeda. I can't just say sympathizers, because that would probably include 99% of Qassim.

I saw some far away places in KSA but never made it to Qassim. Real heavy duty Wahabi territory.
