“The spread of Islamic radicals inside the [Saudi Arabian] military only encouraged [King Fahd’s youngest son] Azouzi to give more to radical causes. In September 1997 he coordinated a $100 million aid package to the Taliban. It didn’t make the slightest bit of difference that the Taliban were protecting bin Laden, a man who had vowed to overthrow the Al Sa’ud.” [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
