oh, what a tangled web we weave...

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 02-25-04

This is a historical context style audiobook on current affairs like no other. Writen by an ex-CIA agent, the perspective is unique and provocative. I found myself reading the world press with new eyes. Baer convincingly illustrates how inextricatively tied we are to the corrupt House of Sa'aud. He shows how fragile their hold on power in the kingdom really is, and as a result why they support the Muslim extremists so lavishly. Baer also hypothosizes a bit on what our future may hold if the kingdom should collapse. The audiobook is read by the author whose style is that of an information gatherer, not an actor, which adds to the tone of the work.
