Saudi Women Send Regrets
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia -- The U.S. Embassy in the Saudi capital has been in virtual lockdown since the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq began. But anger has come to its doors in an unexpected way.

Only a few Saudi women agreed to attend a tea hosted by Ann T. Jordan, wife of the U.S. ambassador, Robert Jordan. Most of the prominent women invited refused to visit the ambassador's residence in a protest against the war. Those who did attend gave impassioned speeches accusing the United States of hypocrisy and aggression.

Fawziya Abu Khaled, a Saudi poet and literature professor, presented a seven-page open letter to the American people.

"It's not just a war," she said over finger sandwiches and tea served in china cups. "It's an invasion. It's a naked war of aggression."

"We can't sleep," said Hend Al Khutalia, a lecturer at King Saud University. "Our hearts are breaking. We can't even enjoy the food we're eating."
