Hypocrisy over Saudis sickening

Donors in Saudi Arabia "constitute the most significant source of funding to Sunni terrorist groups worldwide", said Hillary Clinton in a secret December 2009 paper signed by the US Secretary of State and revealed through WikiLeaks.

At the news of the death of King Abdullah, President Obama said he had "valued King Abdullah's perspective". And Prime Minister Cameron is apparently "deeply saddened" and says that the former king will be remembered for his "commitment to peace and for strengthening understanding between faiths".

Abdullah, Obama, and Cameron shared the same perspective - support for terrorism when it aided their shared interests, and condemning terrorism which impeded those interests.
