  • There are so many ‘stories’out on who, what & why that we need to really use caution & ‘get facts’ before latching on to what seems closest to our own ‘theories’….OK, now that said..I, like you all see it going this direction. It has been beyond my understanding for at least TWO decades why we are so anxious to play kissy face with the Saudis. We have enough oil to take care of us & most European Countries for time to come IF some restrictions on drilling were lifted. They have never’ liked’ us, just tolerate us. They are a stratigic location, but I suspect it’s comforting (to them) to have American military there…”fool me once. it’s shame on you, fool me twice, it’s shame on me”. …& sadly, we’ve gone beyond the ‘twice’ with these countries due to lack of leadership. Michelle may be proud of her Country for the first time, I just wish her husband? would make me proud AGAIN…

    This is one to watch ..closely..Like you , Liz, I just don’t trust what is coverd with so many secrets.

  • It is interesting to note that nearly all terrorist attacks on US soil have been carried out by Saudis. Yet, our unesteemed, inept state department wants to give them expedited entry into the US. There is something seriously wrong with this picture.

    • No argument from me on that one! And I really can’t come up with a real reason for them to do that, so I keep suspecting that there are some backroom deals going on. And no, I am not a conspiracy theorist. Just thinking that if there’s no obvious reason in the public eye, there’s something going on behind the scenes.

      • Saudi locals despise the current “royal” family and would give their eye teeth to kick them out of power. Saudi Arabia is a “friend” of convenience to the US due to that enemy of my enemy is my friend thingy(Saudi Arabia, the Emirates, Oman, Qatar, Jordan, and Bahrain fear Iran due both to religious(Shite vs. Sunni) and political differences.

        The other aspect besides oil is the political influence Saudi has throughout the middle east due mainly to the big petro bucks.

        Ergo, the State department and homeless insecurity kiss the Saudi’s posteriors.
