Ali Shihabi on why Saudi Wahhabi ideology is good for the world

"Given this intense level of security cooperation — something the U.S. does not enjoy with Iran — it becomes clear why the Trump administration has a high level of comfort about Saudi visitors to the U.S."  This is hilarious: he makes it sound that the only country banned by the US is Iran. He forgot about the other six Arab (majority Muslim) countries.  But this is a nice objective summation: "Saudi Arabia is a friend and ally in this fight."  Just as it was an ally and friend in the Bin Laden fight in Afghanistan back in the 1980s.
