This "crisis" puts an intriguing twist on the rumors regarding whom
allegedly paid for his Harvard education. If those rumors are true and
the Saudis don't get what they want in Syria, a Saudi-funded attack in
the U.S. would not be completely surprising, especially since they've
supposedly indirectly threatened Putin with the same.

Irony would be an Obama-Putin alliance to thwart the Saudis.
I wouldn't expect that, but it would certainly change the field.
