SEE SAUDI PRESS FOR ONE SIDED RELATIONSHIP

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

www.arabnews.com
www.saudigazette.com

Every article written in Saudi Arabia is approved by the government censor, and by default, therefore enjoys official blessing.

Draw your own conclusions from that!
