Tight Lips Sink Loose Ships

Here's an interesting quote from Tuesday's press briefing:
Q I was just going to ask whether you can give a readout from the meeting the Vice President had with King Abdullah. We understood that King Abdullah had actually requested the Vice President's presence. And did he have a specific message, and did we carry a message through the Vice President to him about what's going on?

MR. HADLEY: Obviously that was a very confidential conversation. The Vice President has shared it with the President. And it would not be in the interest of our relations with Saudi for me to talk about that conversation here.
Helloooo...THEY WERE TALKING ABOUT OIL AND GIGANTIC PROFITS FOR THEIR FRIENDS! It's a no brainer, eh? Or am I saddly mistaken. Some one please correct me if I am wrong.

The only part I would add would be that the King chewed Cheney out for completely screwing up the status quo and getting thousands of Sunnis killed for their experiment in democratic engineering. Other than that it was about oil and how much both they will be making off the stupid Americans.

Not to mention the influx of refugees that Jordan's now having to deal with.
