The Saudi Paradox article in Foreign Affairs Magazine

http://www.foreignaffairs.org/20040101faessay83105-p0/michael-scott-doran/the-saudi-paradox.html aka You Can’t Tell the Players without a Scorecard.

Michael Scott Doran wrote a great article four years ago about the internal politics of Saudi Arabia and how they affect the Saudi’s treatment of terrorism. It’s a very long article and I’m not going to copy and paste much of it here, because you’re either interested in it or you’re not.

But if you are interested, it’s a great article.
