Abstract:

The 9/11 Commission report called the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia "a problematic ally in combating Islamic extremism." To [the author], this is a huge understatement. In this book, he exposes the truth about U.S.-Saudi relations: how the Saudis' used billions of petrodollars to influence the American power elite, inducing corporations and politicians to sometimes put access to oil and profits above America's own best interests and security. The result of an intensive two-year investigation [this book] 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.-Dust jacket.
