WaPo: Briefing Depicted Saudis as Enemies

· long story short

While it’s still a minority viewpoint in the government, contrarian voices single out Saudi Arabia as a major supporter of terrorism and anti-American activities, according to this Washington Post article:

“Saudi Arabia supports our enemies and attacks our allies,” said the briefing prepared by Laurent Murawiec, a Rand Corp. analyst. A talking point attached to the last of 24 briefing slides went even further, describing Saudi Arabia as “the kernel of evil, the prime mover, the most dangerous opponent” in the Middle East.
