Naomi, The Saudis didn't attack us, Al Qaeda did. Yes they were Saudi citizens but if you ever have a chance to read Osama Bin Ladens Al Qaeda manifesto (you can Google it)you will discover he doesn't like the Saudi Royal family any more than he loves the USA. The government of Saudi Arabia is an ally of the USA against the jihadis. "The business of America is business". Of course oil plays a part - it was the incentive for the establishment of our relationship with the Saudis in the first place. A relationship which goes much further back than the Bush administration. Regards and Go Dodgers!
