Investigative writer Gerald Posner reveals something most extraordinary in Secrets of the Kingdom: The Inside Story of the Saudi-U.S. Connection, his
book to be published by Random House later this month: that the Saudi government may have rigged its oil and gas infrastructure with a self-destruct
system that would keep it out of commission for decades. If true, this could undermine the world economy at any time.
Posner starts by recalling various hints that Americans dropped back in the 1970s, that the high price and limited production of oil might lead to a
U.S. invasion of Saudi Arabia and a seizure of its oil fields. For example, in 1975, Secretary of State Henry Kissinger murkily threatened the Saudis
with a double-negative: “I am not saying that there’s no circumstances where we would not use force” against them.
Will the power and complete control of the destiny of our world be taken out of the hands of the Saudi Royal family? One can only hope............
