US keeps bowing to Saudis rather than standing tall

28 01 2015

Obama was joined in Riyadh by Secretary of State John Kerry, along with Condoleezza Rice and James Baker, who led the State Department under Republican presidents. Former White House national security advisers Brent Scowcroft, Sandy Berger and Stephen Hadley, former Natoinal Security Advisers for both parties, also made the trip, as did Sen.John McCain, the Arizona Republican who is a frequent critic of Obama’s foreign policy in the Middle East. CIA Director John Brennan and Gen. Lloyd Austin, commander of U.S. Central Command, which overseas military activity in the Middle East, joined the delegation.

The U.S. should be withdrawing from and ending the Special Relationship with Saudi Arabia, one of the wold’s most repressive police states with a horrible record when it comes to basic human rights.

But instead Obama is furthering tHE US-Saudi connectoin and quite literally bowing to it.

Obama bowed this time as well to the new Saudi King, much as he did to king Abdullah a few years back, but this time no such graphic pictures have surfaced.
