Ties that Bind?

Bill and Hillary Clinton appear to be on very good terms with the Saudis:

Bill Clinton’s presidential library raised more than 10 percent of the cost of its $165 million facility from foreign sources, with the most generous overseas donation coming from Saudi Arabia…
The royal family of Saudi Arabia gave the Clinton facility in Little Rock about $10 million, roughly the same amount it gave toward the presidential library of George H.W. Bush.

The Saudis, of course, purvey Wahhabism, a fundamentalist form of Islam and are ever at work supplying educational materials about the Middle East to U.S. students. (Editorial, Family Security Matters)
