It is a tribute to “the Saudis’ considerable influence in U.S. corridors of power” that such a ridiculous deal would ever be proposed. It is also, as Gaffney and others have pointed out, a consequence of our dependence on Saudi oil. That is why Gaffney and others advocate a mixture of conservation and smarter development of domestic energy sources as an indispensable part of our security policy.

That is the medium- to long-term answer. The immediate response is to call your representatives in Congress today and tell them to oppose the sale. Congress has until this Thursday, February 14, to disapprove the sale.

The only thing that stands between the Saudis and those bombs are people like you. If Congress does not hear from you, the sale will go through, and the next time you read about these bombs, the news might be very grim.
