Today, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia celebrates its 80th (according to the Hijra calendar) anniversary of the foundation of the Saudi state by King Abdulaziz Al-Saud in 1932.

"On the occasion of our 80th National Day, Saudi Arabia is proud of its accomplishments. The Kingdom will continue to be a source of global energy, promote regional security and diplomacy, and foster social development around the world. We welcome Secretary Clinton's warm remarks, and will continue to partner with the United States to address the key issues our two countries face," stated Saudi Ambassador to the United States, Adel bin Ahmed Al-Jubeir.

To commemorate Saudi Arabia's National Day, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lauded the leadership of Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz saying, "King Abdullah's leadership on key challenges, from developing the Kingdom's institutions and economy to establishing an enduring dialogue promoting moderation and tolerance, has put Saudi Arabia and the region on a path towards a stronger, more prosperous, and more secure future."

The world experienced a horrible terrorist attack on 9/11, the perpetrators of which were Saudis, primarily, and a few Pakistanis. We quickly invaded Afghanistan, with the support of the international community, to find the Saudi mastermind. We didn't find him, so we invaded Iraq for reasons that changed month-to-month -- without the support of the international community.

In the meantime, it has become evident, unless you just choose not to be informed, that the Saudis have been the primary financial supporters of the terrorism schools that first started in Pakistan and have now spread to Yemen, Somalia, many parts of Africa and most recently the Balkans.

Yet, the United States continues to give money to Pakistan. Now, our Pentagon is asking Congress to appropriate $60 billion for the sale of advanced weapons to Saudi Arabia. This is the country that, from everything I've read, is the most responsible for the terrorist movement. Could we get any more crazy?
