How Saudi Arabia Captured Washington
The United States & Saudi Arabia's relationship has always been complicated. I've always asked myself the question of "Why?". Why are we allies with a country which funded a large majority of the 9/11 hijackers, executes people by beheadings (although the electric chair is not much better), and is centuries behind the rest of the world in terms of Women/LGBT rights? The consensus answer is typically "Oil". Vox sheds a different light on the complicated relationship.
