Saudi-American Collusion, Corruption and Outrage

Reader comment on item: The Scandal of U.S.-Saudi Relations

Submitted by Diana Nielsen (United States), Jan 9, 2003 at 23:55

I was quite surprised there was no mentioned the recent donation of $500,000 to the George Bush Library; I wonder what the US citizenry had or will have to give up for that little "gift". Even if the gift was for George Sr.; we all know how Jr feels about Sr.

Also, FYI Mr. Pipes, as to Khaled Almaeena: I emailed him telling him some of my opinions (after reading his "Open letter to President Bush" and other comments he had written). He, apparently, wasn't very happy with me because instead of addressing the questions and issues I raised, he told me he thought I needed "counseling". When that failed, evidently, to illiicit the response he desired his next email asked me, " Do you come from a dysfunctional family"? To be fair to Mr. Almaeena, he did say that there were some issues and opinions I gave had some points to possibly ponder upon.

As Mr. Pipes has said, Congress needs to take action on the issues he has raised-the State Dept. and the Executive are out of control. Just as Congress rarely fails to give themselves nice raises, I have my doubts about them giving up Saudi perks easily.
p.s. Unless anyone thinks I am just another complaining Democrat with a grudge against the Executive or President Bush: I am a registered Republican and voted for him in the last election.
Submitting....
