The government of Saudi Arabia reportedly is holding forty suspects in connection with the June truck bombing that killed nineteen U-S military personnel.
The Washington Post says that the Saudis in custody have been linked to Iran in the attack.
But some say it's not true, CBS News correspondent Tom Fenton reports.

THEY ALL BELONG TO THE SUNNI TREND, AND THEY BELONG TO THE AFGHAN, SO CALLED, AFGHAN ARABS.
The saudi authorities have been conducting a sweeping investigation of the barracks bombing. now, saudi sources are suggesting that shiite muslims linked to iran were behind the bombing. that, says the sunni muslim opposition, is a red herring. /SAAD AL FAGIH/SAUDI OPPOSITION LEADER THERE HAVE BEEN A SELECTED GROUP OF SHIITES WHO WERE TORTURED TO CONFESS ARTIFICIALLY FOR A MANUFACTURED SCENARIO OF BEING RESPONSIBLE FOR THE KHOBAR BOMBING AND WE HAVE A THEORY TO EXPLAIN THIS...THEY WILL BE ABLE TO CONVINCE THE PUBLIC INSIDE AS WELL AS INTERNATIONAL ARENA THAT THERE IS NO INDIGENOUS MILITARY OPPOSITION TO THE SAUDI REGIME OR TO THE AMERICANS.
The bottom line is that american authorities have been given very little official information about who the bombers may have been and who backed them. the saudi authorities are playing their cards very close to their chests. eveo the f.b>i., which is helping in the investigation, has been denied access to key suspects.
