It’s still our money, and they’re still spending it to provide weapons to foreign fighters to create regime change Syria:
“U.S. officials said after the meeting that the administration was willing to increase the level of assistance it supplies to Syrian rebels, a main request of the Saudis, who have place a high priority on ousting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
The path for more assistance was smoothed by closer agreement on which more moderate elements of the opposition alliance should receive it, senior U.S. officials said.
“The more confidence we can have in different groups, the more and better assistance we can provide to those groups,” a senior administration official said after the meeting.
“We feel like we’re in a stronger place as a collective group in support of the Syrian opposition today than we were several months ago,” a senior administration official said.
“It’s not just about the amount and types of assistance but about strengthening the right groups and being most effective about it,” the official added. “What we’re trying to do is agree on who we are trying to help; who we’re not trying to help.” – WSJ
Sadly, while the U.S. and Saudi governments are only too happy to destroy a sovereign nation that grants full, equal rights to women, they completely ignore the total lack of women’s rights in Saudi Arabia:
“The two leaders appeared to have avoided one subject that also has been a sore one: human rights in the Saudi kingdom, which didn’t appear to be a topic in the conversation.
“We did not really expect them to say anything and they lived up to our expectation,” said Hala al Dosari, a Riyadh woman who is a prominent advocate of increased rights for women in Saudi Arabia.
American leaders with regard to Saudi Arabia often are more concerned with “economic ties, which are more important in their view” than rights issues, Ms. al Dosari said.
Currently, with the Obama administration, “they see the relationship” with the kingdom “in a very strained state, and they don’t want to add more.”
Women here are required to have a male guardian throughout their life and are banned from driving, among other restrictions.” – WSJ
