Saudi Arabia Hearts Barack Obama
Our friends the Saudis are solidly behind Barack Obama for President, because they think he’ll bring the kind of “change” they’re looking for.
And if you don’t know what kind of “change” Saudi Arabia wants, you must not be paying attention.
In an editorial, the Saudi paper Al-Watan stated that U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama is more capable than anyone else of bringing about change in U.S. policy, particularly in all things connected to the Middle East.
The paper added that in light of Obama’s intent to conduct a dialogue with Iran, the Middle East countries should launch a dialogue with him and help him better understand what is going on.
