    pretty good

    As much as I respect Mr. Baer's service and his unquestionable expertise on Middle East politics and terrorism, this was somewhat of a tough read. Indeed Baer's research into how deep in bed we are with Saudi Arabia, who w/out question are one of if not the largest state sponser of terror in the world, his narration of the facts can be quite confusing and easy to lose. Much of the book really does dig into the corruption of the Saudi royals and our history dealing with them. Baer explains how our relationship has been, currently is, and for the forseeable future is a real catch-22. We need and depend on their oil while knowing every gallon we buy likely contributes to the very terrorists we are trying to defeat. This book is quite thorough into exposing US and Saudi corruption.........but is somewhat confusing at times. Overall I'm glad I read it........

    I liked it

    It was informative of many situations concerning the oil business, the true one in which deep politics, world security is involved, the one for which lifes, countries do not matter. But for someone familiar with this issue I found it informative but not too much.

    Excellent history important to current affairs

    Robert Baer, although using occassional hype, has documented the historical underpinnings of our relationship with and support of Saudi Arabia. He also uncovers the Kingdom's uneasy relationship with Islamic fundamentals, and their part in supporting terrorist agendas.

    A must read for anyone concerned with current affairs in the Middle East.

    What everyone should know about the middle east

    This is the best documented story of the corruption of western politics around. It should be required reading for anyone who has an interest in how we got to where we are. Unfortunately those who are in a position to correct things already know that they don't want this info widely known.

    A MUST READ FOR ANYONE WANTING TO KNOW THE TRUTH ABOUT THE WAR ON TERROR

    If you would like to know what has been going on in the middle east for the last 25 years this is the book for you. You could not get a better source, the career of a CIA anti-terrorism officer.

    More Please!

    I only wish I could get the FULL manuscript of this book (the CIA has censored Mr. Baer.) Hmmm, he MUST have something to say or they wouldn't bother. Buy and read this book. Wake-up Washington and stop lining your pockets with blood money.

    100% essential reading!

    This is 100% essential reading if we are to understand what is really happening in the world today - the Saudis are far more our enemy than Saddam was. Never forget that 15 out of the19 9/11 hijackes were Saudis and NONE of them came from Iraq!
