Reader comment on item: [Freedom House report on] Saudi Venom in U.S. Mosques

Submitted by Dave Mitchell (United States), Feb 1, 2005 at 10:06

Have I missed it or is this topic avoided by the popular media?

Is the government reluctant to confront the Saudis because we are addicted to their oil?

---or is it because we are afraid a military threat to their holiest of lands would inflame even the neutral Muslims? -- or both?

Liberals that I know blame a relationship between the Bush and Saudi families. Is there any credibility to this accusation?
