A Book Review of “Saudi Arabia and the Global Islamic Terrorist Network

Dick Morris
We all know that the United States is enmeshed in a corrupt bargain with the Saudi Monarchy: We keep a blind eye toward their human rights abuses and they continue to supply us with oil.

Saudi Arabia and the Global Islamic Terrorist Network

“Understanding the sources of funding for terrorism is critical to defeating this threat to our way of life. Sarah Stern’s book is required reading on this issue.” – John Bolton, Former United States Ambassador to the United Nations
