There are unconfirmed reports that he began fitting while talking on the phone with US President Barack Obama regarding the fate of Mubarak, who is a close friend of King Abdullah.
Saudi opposition sources announced that Abdullah has died on February 9 at his home in Morocco. Saudi Foreign Minister Saud Al Faisal, however, said on the following day that the monarch was in 'excellent shape.'
The intelligence sources said Abdullah's medical condition had deteriorated sharply over the last few days. "He has suffered a major medical setback," said one intelligence source, stressing that he was not in danger of imminent death.
King Abdullah tried to rally US support for former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak's continued stay in power despite a popular Revolution in Egypt, urging the removal of the 30-year-long Egyptian leader's regime.

It says King Abdulla is the one thats ill not Mubarak, i know its a little confusing but if you read it twice you can get the gist, although it will be a shame if King Abdulla dies, he's been a stable ruler for the arab nation and we have few allies in the region.
what the hell is going on

The Saudis just concluded the biggest U.S. Armaments deal that the U.S. has ever done at one time and is ultimately going to vie for the mantle of Middle East Leadership Iran desperately wants.
