Obama in Saudi Arabia

It is significant that Obama has decided to visit Saudi Arabia and meet with King `Abdullah before making his speech in Cairo. It only shows that those who expected major changes in US foreign policy in the Middle East will surely be disappointed. Obama will still deal with Wahhabi king as if he actually speaks for all world's Muslims, and his coziness with the Wahhabi royals will not be different from how it was under Bush.
