Saudi Arabia severs diplomatic ties with the United States – False U.K. Daily Mail headline October 22, 2013
Saudi Arabia made the news earlier this week when Prince Bandar bin Sultan, the Saudi intelligence chief threatened to change the cozy relationship that his country has had with the United States for the past few decades. Saudi Arabia, however, did not sever diplomatic ties as the Daily Mail reported. Prince Bandar apparently is upset with the United States’ inaction over Syria and its offer to hold talks with Iran.* On the surface, it may appear that this is an insignificant diplomatic dispute. It’s not.
