Saudi Arms Deal?

Most of the terrorists from 9/11 were Saudis, so it stands to reason that there is a lot of anti-American sentiment there. This is made more interesting by the fact that our current administration is trying to set up a $20 billion arms package to Saudi Arabia.

Of course, the article mentions that Israel is concerned, so the apparent compromise is that we will request that the arms (particularly guided missles) will be as far away from Israel as possible.

This can't go wrong, right?!?!?!?!
