Al Gore: Is he right in U.S. rebuke or is he a traitor?

I just read Michelle Malkin's post titled Al Gore Slanders America.  The former vice-president was giving a speech in Saudi Arabia to the Jeddah Economic Forum where he is reported saying that the U.S. government committed "terrible abuses" against Arabs after 9/11.

He talks about how Arabs had been "indiscriminately rounded up" and held in "unforgivable" conditions.  Gore then described how Washington was playing into al-Qaida's hands by blocking Saudi visa applications.

Malkin then refutes his charges by quoting from the Justice Department's Inspector General report on how the 9/11 detainees were treated and why they were detained. 

Gore's living in another world, it seems.  Is he right?  Or is his bitterness over losing the election and his rampant self-righteousness getting the best of him?
