Very important aspect to the issue

Reader comment on item: Government for Sale [to the Saudis]

Submitted by David Schoen (United States), Dec 3, 2002 at 12:29

This is the start of a very important avenue of discourse on the subject of Saudi Arabia. There has to be a lot more in-depth research and public disclosure of the financial interests of administration figures (and relatives) in Saudi Arabia, whether through consulting contracts or direct financial interests. I was recently retained to do some research on a defense defense department official who we learned had been a primary lobbyist for Saudi Arabian business and government interests in private practice before joining the government. It is hard to believe that such a person would operate in an objective manner toward Saudi Arabia. How much more so people like George Sr., Scowcroft, etc.

Thanks for the important work.
