So, what flag do we raise above the White House?
Why do you insinuate this is a White House issue (in effect blaming Obama) when this is clearly an issue of the military leadership being beholden to Saudis. The military has always been staunchly pro-Republican. After 9/11 the military (under the Bush admin.) bent over backwards to escort Saudis out of the country for their "protection".
This is an EXTREMELY disturbing issue, the American people must be the ones to resist this form of enslavement because our military leadership is in the back pocket of foreign interests.

The Saudi royal family lives in fear that the US will decide to become energy independent.
They are very concerned about hybrid and/or electric vehicles becoming a standard or required. They also are concerned about alternative fuels.
Why, because if the US tried, it could be energy independent in less than a decade. Other countries ie China and India would follow our lead.
The only income that Saudi Arabia has is it's oil. If oil loses its value, Saudi Arabia loses its only source of income. That would cause an implosion in the Kingdom.
