“In mid-2002, word leaked to the press that the semiofficial Defense Policy Board, chaired by the durable cold warrior Richard Perle, had endorsed an assessment [on July 10, 2002] that Saudi Arabia wasn’t our friend when it came to terrorism. To be exact, the paper called Saudi Arabia ‘central to the self-destruction of the Arab world and the chief vector of the Arab crisis and its outwardly directed aggression. The Saudis are active at every level of the terror chain, from planners to financiers, from cadre to foot-soldier, from ideologist to cheerleader.’ ”
