Reader comment on item: Saudi Efforts to Impede Discussion of Women's Rights
in response to reader comment: saudi misuse of rights and freedoms in non-islamic societies

Hi L. Manohar,

I agree with you completely, except on one small point. Both our major political parties are equally culpable and in bed with the Saudis. Though our current President is the only one who has physically bowed down to the king of Saudi Arabia, his predecessors back to Carter, at least, all did so figuratively, though not literally. President Obama was at least being honest when he publicly bowed and groveled to our greatest enemy.

If you're curious about this subject, i recommend a thoroughly depressing book, Sleeping with the Devil, by Robert Baer.
