US media on Saudi King

"The question is how much he can accomplish before his death or dotage. Physically and mentally, Abdullah is still going strong, says Ford Fraker, the outgoing U.S. ambassador to Riyadh. "The physical power of this man is remarkable," Fraker says. "When you shake hands with him it's like shaking hands with a tree trunk. He is rock solid. There isn't a tremor anywhere."" My question is this: has there ever been a US ambassador to Saudi Arabia who did not do business with the Saudi royal family "after" leaving office? (thanks Mohd)
