    Unfortunately, under the leadership of King Fahd (actual or nominal), Saudi Arabia demonstrated it was possible to be with us and with the terrorists. Far from being regarded as a hostile regime, the U.S. has described the Saudi government as a valued "partner" in the war on terror, notwithstanding abundant evidence it continues to harbor and support terrorism around the world -- including inside the U.S.
