President Obama Can Help Save Saudi Youth Facing Beheading

Medea Benjamin

One concrete outcome that President Obama could pursue on his visit to Saudi Arabia is saving the lives of three Shia youth sentenced to be executed, most likely by beheading, for participating in nonviolent protests. Sparing their lives could also help ease the Shia/Sunni tensions that have engulfed the region.

It's very telling that after over a decade (since 9/11) of "regime change" and "nation building" in the Middle East, Saudi Arabia is still conveniently off the list of potential candidates. What dirt do they have on the US government, anyway? I think I know.

The old saying that you are known by your friends certainly applies to America's close friends Israel and Saudi Arabia. Enough said!
