"Mr. President.." I said, "Can you explain why our administration has not and WILL NOT address the fact that Saudi Arabia might be the real threat to our national security and our real concern regarding this so called "War on Terror"? There is even extensive evidence that your administration censored 28 pages of the 9/11 report to cover up suspected Saudi involvement! Mr. President, PLEASE let me know why there are continuous allegations that terrorists are getting help from inside Saudi Arabia and yet, we do nothing about it except continue to call them our ally in this war?
Bush looks and me... hands me the check for my latte and danish and mumbles something about global warming and Iran and slowly gets up to flirt with the chippy.
I'm just trying to get answers here and all I get is another bill, directly from the president to the average American. I'm a fair guy though, I accept the bill and give him the "zip up your fly" nod. (I want him to have a chance at baggin this babe!) After all, I still believe a president works better and harder for the American people when he's getting a little love on the side. This one needs all the help he can get.
Granted, I can see the problems with questioning the Saudis. As Baer states " It wouldn't take much, he argues, for Saudi militants to get hold of potent weapons, cull a small force from the largely disaffected population, and carry out an attack on the country's vital oil infrastructure. Halting the flow of Saudi crude would send world oil prices sky high and, in a worst-case scenario, could lead to regional war and global economic collapse."
Sounds pretty bad to me.
As I watch the president make feeble attempts at flirting, I ponder the darker side of his mind. Does he really think it's ok to LIE to the American people to slowly gain an American stronghold in the Middle East to ultimately control our precious flow of oil for the future, or is it better to tell us the truth?
I'm guessing that the truth (that Saudi Arabia is our real enemy) would be too painful and costly to our American pocketbooks. And that might be the real story and the REAL truth.
