SenatorsThreathen to Hold Up Sales of Defense Articles to Saudi Arabia and Other OPEC Nations

The AFP reports today:

A group of US senators on Thursday threatened to block arms deals with OPEC member countries if they do not boost oil output to help bring down soaring gasoline prices.

Senators Charles Schumer, Byron Dorgan, Bernie Sanders, Bob Casey, and Mary Landrieu issued their warning in a letter to President George W. Bush.

"The Saudis have to understand this is a two-way street. We provide them weapons, our troops provide them protection, and then they rake us over the coals when it comes to oil. The Saudis and Big Oil are in cahoots and this administration has coddled them both for far too long," said Schumer, a New York Democrat.
