Robert Worth measuring Saudi public opinion

Worth reports that the Saudi people are supportive of the policies and wars of the regimes. How does he know that? Well, people spoke to him on the record and told him and he even said that the Saudi people have freedom of expression on Twitter. Yes, there is freedom of expression on Twitter for the Saudi people--but only those who support the regime. They are allowed to discuss and debate how to best support the regime.  Mr. Worth: people are beheaded in Saudi Arabia for disobeying the ruler and you say that people can express disapproval of Saudi regime policies and wars?  Are you serious?
