Question Concerning Need for Legislation

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

Submitted by Joshua Schwartz (United States), Dec 3, 2002 at 14:55

The fecklessness the White House and State Department show in their approach to Saudi America suggests conflicts of interest abound. However, until reading Mr. Pipes' article today I always assumed most of these conflicts had to do with oil. In suggesting the need for legislation, Mr. Pipes identifies the risk that Saudi money might flow to ex-US government officials. I am curious whether there are any examples of this type of conflict. Thank you.
