BROTHERS IN ARMS Bush, Abdullah (inset)
In a meeting attended by this Radar correspondent several years ago, Saudi Arabian King Abdullah made it clear that he doesn't really buy the commonly accepted story line about who was behind the 9/11 attacks. Among the bizarre points cited by Abdullah as evidence of a larger conspiracy was the fact that the hijackers themselves could never have figured out which airplanes had the most fuel in them without the assistance of some as-yet unnamed (and though he didn't say it, probably Jewish) coconspirators. So Allah only knows what kind of crazy Abdullah's dropped on President Bush yesterday, who's in the desert kingdom as part of his ambitious Middle Eastern tour.
According to press reports, Abdullah will introduce Bush to Saudi delicacies in an opulent desert tent and will show off his vast stable of Arabian horses. Which is a huge mistake on Abdullah's part, because our terror-fighting president intends to sneak back to the stable after lights out, where he will cut off the head of Abdullah's favorite horse and slip it into the sleeping monarch's gold canopy bed to convey to him in unmistakable terms that America will no longer tolerate the Saudi government's terrorist-coddling bullshit.
