House: No Aid To Saudi Arabia

In a stunning slap in the face of American Foriegn Policy, the House of Representatives voted to give no financial aid to Saudi Arabia..not that the oil rich nation needs it.

The House vote closes a loophole that has allowed the Bush Administration to send $2.5 million dollars to the kingdom, home to 19 of the 9/11 hijackers and the only country in the world to conduct public beheadings.

The Bush administration opposed the bill claiming Saudi Arabia needs the money because it is an ally in the war on terror.

The amendement was championed by Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-New York), who is also my congressman.
