It is sad to see what is happening to the innocent people in the Middle East. It all flows as the result of the failure of their crooked sold out dictators.

If President Bush is sincere and genuine when he says that he wants to see a Democratic Middle East after changing the regime in Iraq, he would have been respected and loved by every one in the world.

But when he calls the eternal Ambassador of Saudi Arabia in Washington, his friend and he receives him in the family Ranch, with all the hoopla and public relation photo/Op and so on, it is hard to believe he is "for real."

Knowing full well that 16 of the 9/11 terrorists were Saudis, that Osama Bin Laden was raised in the same Royal Palace as the Ambassador, and that 95% of the terror financing is from Saudi Arabia, President Bush should know better than to maintain such a relationship with the Ambassador..

President Bush might have noble plans but with his connections and self serving friends do not serve him well.
