The President's Saudi Moment.
- Bob Woodward’s latest book, “State of Denial,” is loaded with new information about the Iraq war – how it began and how it has been conducted. But it also includes some new information about the Bush administration and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
As is well known, the Bush family is very close to the Saudi ruling family. They are so close that when then Governor George W. Bush was thinking of running for President, his father asked Prince Bandar, then Saudi ambassador to the United States, to come to Texas and essentially conduct a tutorial on Middle East issues for the future President.
