Kingdom Awaits the 45th President. Iran declines, ISIS in Iraq, Al Qaeda in Syria, Algeria trembles. Malcolm Hoenlein, @conf_of_pres. Michael Pregent, Hudson.

“…The anti-Saudi campaign picked up steam following the conclusion of the nuclear deal with Iran, as many Washington analysts began to advocate for normalization of relations with Tehran to “counterbalance” Riyadh. These critics warn that Saudi Arabia should no longer be viewed as a staunch ally and that the United States ought to disavow the kingdom as a mainstay of stability in a volatile Middle East.

“On face value, it is easy to jump to the conclusion that Saudi Arabia — the birthplace of Osama bin Laden, Wahhabism, and an absolute monarchy that adheres to Islamic law — is an engine of global Islamist extremism. But the fact is that Washington needs Saudi Arabia today more than ever if it is to defeat the so-called Islamic State, al Qaeda, and their global offshoots.

“Beltway pundits have recently latched on to a thinly sourced “60 Minutes” segment accusing the Saudi government, and by extension the royal family, of involvement in the 9/11 attacks. They claim that the redacted 28 pages from the 9/11 Commission report could offer “explosive” new revelations about Saudi complicity in the attacks.

Sorry, but the facts suggest that the exact opposite is true….”

I listened to this program and found it informative. I urge all listeners to listen to it and form your own opinion ! I am surprised and disappointed by the two previous comments below. I deeply respect Malcolm Hoenlein, Phd, and I have listened to many programs he appeared on in the John Batchelor Show.

What a bunch of yicky yacky hockey puck evasiveness of a conversation. Elitist bovine scatology at its finest. And these people think they are the smartest cats around? A joke. Total joke.
