The untold story behind Saudi Arabia's 41-year U.S. debt secret

The basic framework was strikingly simple. The United States would buy oil from Saudi Arabia and provide the kingdom military aid and equipment. In return, the Saudis would plow billions of their petrodollar revenue back into Treasuries and finance America's spending.

Exactly how much of America's debt Saudi Arabia actually owns is something that matters more now than ever before.

While oil's collapse has deepened concern that Saudi Arabia will need to liquidate its Treasuries to raise cash, a more troubling worry has also emerged: the specter of the kingdom using its outsize position in the world's most important debt market as a political weapon, much as it did with oil in the 1970s.

In April, Saudi Arabia warned it would start selling as much as $750 billion in Treasuries and other assets if Congress passes a bill allowing the kingdom to be held liable in U.S. courts for the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, according to the New York Times. The threat comes amid a renewed push by presidential candidates and legislators from both the Democratic and Republican parties to declassify a 28-page section of a 2004 U.S. government report that is believed to detail possible Saudi connections to the attacks. The bill, which passed the Senate on May 17, is now in the House of Representatives.

This section contains simple teachings:
 
    The spiritual leaders of the household of faith are planted in "God's vineyard" and are expected to produce fruit.
    God will not tolerate fruitlessness indefinitely.
    Mercy and Grace are extended to those who do not bear fruit.
 
What is the expected response of the one who hears?
 

 

 

I thought this thread was about how the American public got swindled by the oil companies. They certainly bear a lot of fruit...
