Robert Baer reveals how our government's relationship with Saudi Arabia and America's dependence on Saudi oil make us vulnerable to economic disaster and put us at risk for further acts of terrorism. Our addiction to cheap oil and Saudi petrodollars caused us to turn a blind eye to the Al Sa'ud's culture of bribery, and its financial support of fundamentalist Islamic groups that have been directly linked to international acts of terror, including those against the United States.
"Ouch. The truth hurts."
When Arianna (an angel in training) has to go out into the world to earn her wings, by saving a soul, she has no idea what awaits her. Brandy is a succubus and she's on the run. She disobeyed Satan's orders. When they both find one another, the strangest alliance you can ever imagine forms and a friendship is born. This tale is graphic in nature and for adults only. All characters are 18 or older.
Baer goes behind the scenes to show how the U.S. willingly overlooked the corruption of the Saudi royal family, its financing of violent Islamic fundamentalist groups that spread hatred of the West throughout Saudi society, and its bribery of American officials. From a close-up with a corrupt Arab family to the inside scoop on how we helped fund the Taliban, Baer shows what's at stake in our pursuit of oil.
