The United States and the Saudis have long pursued a mutually advantageous relationship founded on oil, defense, and shared interests. But now, as these two countries witness massive shifts in the Arab world, that relationship is poised to change.
Coming soon: The Collie’s comprehensive coverage of the shifting relationship between Saudi Arabia and the U.S. will scrutinize what exactly is changing the way these countries think about one another. We will investigate the politics of the Iran Nuclear Deal, the controversy surrounding 26 unreleased pages of the 9/11 report, and the dwindling ways by which OPEC can maintain control over the price of oil. Accounting for all of these diplomatic issues, the Collie will try to uncover what changes in the U.S.-Saudi relationship entail for the Middle East’s future.
