Bush 41 and his former Defense Secretary Dick Cheney visited Saudi Arabia today to offer condolences to the newly crowned King Abdullah for the death of King Fahd.

"Bush himself has had close ties with Saudi Arabia's royal family for decades. In 1990 he won Fahd's agreement to send half a million troops to Saudi Arabia to launch the war on Iraq that forced it to end its occupation of Kuwait.

But the decision to station non-Muslim soldiers in Saudi Arabia, home to Islam's holiest shrines at Mecca and Medina, angered many Saudis and was a principle grievance of Saudi-born militant
Osama bin Laden."

According to Reuters, journalists weren't given access to the the US delegation.
