On this episode of The Geopolitical Report, we examine the special relationship between Saudi Arabia and the United States and the prominent role the Saudi Wahhabi version of Islam plays in the spread of Salafist ideology and terrorism.
President Trump’s decision to not include Saudi Arabia on his list of travel ban nations reveals it is business as usual in Washington — and business as usual for Trump, who is on friendly terms with the Saudis, including the half brother of Osama bin Landen.
We also look at the role the Saudis have played in funding the likes of the Islamic State and al-Nusra in Syria and its partnership with the CIA and the Pentagon. -Newsbud.com
