Reader comment on item: What Riyadh Buys [in Washington]

Submitted by Arlene Swartzman (United States), Dec 13, 2002 at 11:51

The relationship between the Executive branch of our government and the Saudi government is a very important issue and I now more clearly understand how complicated it is -- and why. V.S. Naipaul's recent comments on this relationship with the Saudis were that this is a "crazy war where your enemies are your friends"; this article makes clear why the craziness exists. Thank you for this very important information. It brings to mind the saying that "with friends like these we don't need enemies."
