Peter queries why Saudi criticsm seems to be cresting now. Well, the facts are perhaps overcoming years of careful work on the part of that regime here in the US (and not just in Foggy Bottom). Stubbornly, some still resist -- see the exchange between Cliff May and Bob Novak posted on NROs Corner yesterday. "Blame Israel First" only goes so far, and cant, for instance, explain away the Saudi visa scandal or the emerging money trail story. How long can Mr. Prince of Darkness retain what credibility he has?
