Saudi Arabia influences American policy through both conventional and unconventional methods, ranging from lobbying to endowments to think tanks and policy centers, universities and workshops for teachers in kindergarten through twelfth grade, all due to the petro-dollars that have been generated from America's addiction to foreign oil. With chapters written by long-time experts in the fields of national security, foreign policy, education, and law, this book uses first-hand accounts to explore the Saudis' vast grip. It addresses how Saudi influence has eased the rise of domestic terrorism as well as a promulgation of pernicious ideas regarding American foreign policy. All this has produced a philosophy of moral equivalency, mitigating against a sense of American exceptionalism or a moral clarity of America's unique mission in the world.Relations (RL33533, March 10, 2011), by Christopher M.
