Obama gushes over brutal Saudi dictator


From UK Daily Mail…

David Cameron, Barack Obama, and Tony Blair were among those who made gushing tributes to the authoritarian and hugely powerful monarch of the world’s biggest oil producing country.

Abdullah, who died on Thursday night of pneumonia, oversaw limited reforms in the conservative kingdom where women are still banned from driving, voting, and even leaving the house without a male chaperone.

All citizens are unable to vote except in municipal elections, public beheading by sword remains a feature of the judicial system while political parties are banned, and homosexuality is punished by death.
