Yes, our President is personal friends with many of our worst Moslem enemies

in response to reader comment: Bush is with America' enemies; many are close personal friends of the Bush family

cf. the revolting picture I mentioned in my earlier response of Bush holding hands with Saudi King Abdullah. Holding hands?

Bush after 9/11 had a chance to redefine our relationship with Saudi.
I would not ask for outright hostility (as much as I would desire it personally) but more a professional sphere-of-influence agreement like Churchill unsuccessfully sought with Stalin or Nixon pursued more successfully with Brezhnev and Mao.

Nixon was not "buddies" with USSR or PRC, but we had decent, stable relations with them because Nixon made non-negotiable but real demands from them.

Wahabi Islam is a threat to human freedom FAR exceeding the power of Communism, and Bush should have stopped M immigration or visas and quietly told his Saudi masters after 9/11 that they had to stop sending money and maniac clerics to the West, and that the mosques should be closed down rather than subsidized.

The Saudis were scared stiff after 9/11, and I'll bet they couldn't believe that even their "boy" gave them a pass to the degree of covering up the portion of the official report that pertained to Saudi criminality.
