Prince Turki al-Faisal, Saudi Arabia's ambassador to the United States, flew out of Washington yesterday after informing Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and his staff that he would be leaving the post after only 15 months on the job, according to U.S. officials and foreign envoys. There has been no formal announcement from the kingdom.

The abrupt departure is particularly striking because his predecessor, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, spent 22 years on the job. The Saudi ambassador is one of the most influential diplomatic positions in Washington and is arguably the most important overseas post for the oil-rich desert kingdom.

I think that we are seeing a power play once and if Turki brother passes away shortly Turki may go after his job. There could also be more to this situations then meets the eye.

Do any members have any thoughts ?

I think it has to do with the worlds switch from to American petro-dollar to the new Euro. Nobody wants to be left holding a hyper inflated currency.
The U.S. gov't will blame OPEC, Russia, & Venezuala for a finacial collapse when in reality it is the U.S. gov'ts and actually the American peoples own fault for electing idioits and spending beyond their means.
