Abstract:

The 9/11 Commission report called the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia "a problematic ally in combating Islamic extremism." To Posner, this is a gross understatement. In this book, he exposes the truth about U.S.-Saudi relations--and how the Saudis' influence on American business and politics poses a grave threat to our security. Using bank records and other previously undisclosed information, his two-year investigation penetrates the innermost layers of the shielded House of Saud and presents evidence of complicity and deceit at the highest levels--evidence that the 9/11 Commission failed to consider.
