Just as long as President Obama doesn't become Ronald Reagan II or George W. Bush II, I'll be happy. I have no problem with him being Jimmy Carter II in relation to the Arab world.
On April 18, 1983, terrorists from Hezbollah, funded by Iran bombed the US Embassy in Beirut, Lebanon killing 63 embassy employees, including 17 Americans both civilian employees and military personnel. President Reagan did nothing. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1983_United_States_embassy_bombing
On October 23, 1983, the Islamic Jihad terrorist organization, funded by Iran, bombed the US Marine Corps barracks in Beirut, Lebanon killing 241 people including 220 United States Marines, 18 US Navy sailors and 3 US Army soldiers. The Reagan Administration response was to move US military forces off land and onto US ships in the Mediterranean Sea after the terrorist attack. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1983_United_States_embassy_bombing
The US also sued Iran and finally in July 2012, federal Judge Royce Lamberth ordered Iran to pay more than $813m in damages and interest to the families of the 241 US soldiers that were killed, writing in a ruling that Tehran had to be "punished to the fullest extent legally possible... Iran is racking up quite a bill from its sponsorship of terrorism." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1983_Beirut_barracks_bombing
In spite of Iran's sponsorship of terrorism that killed close to 300 Americans, in 1985 the Reagan Administration was caught selling US Hawk and TOW missiles to the terrorist nation of Iran under the Ayatollah Kohmeine in the Iran-Contra scandal. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iran-Contra

And finally, here's President George W. Bush with one of his closest personal friends, Prince Bandar bin Sultan bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, who when this photo was taken down on the Bush Ranch in Crawford, Texas was the Saudi Oil Minister.
Prince Bandar has now moved on from oil to be the head of the Saudi version of the CIA, Director General of the Saudi Intelligence Agency. http://ph.cdn.photos.upi.com/topic_photo/Prince_Bandar_bin_Sultan/c2e7a4f191ffc659aaa3d92eecac0a84/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bandar_bin_Sultan
Mr. Gonzales' Wasn't Slick Willy offered UBL several times and refused ? Didn't Willy prohibit, to protect himself, communications between the CIA and FBI? Don't want those inconvenient Chinese bribes coming up again, do we ?
Nope he was never offered Osama Bin Laden. A fox news contributor Mansoor Ijaz made up the story and was considered not credible by the NSA. Sudan never had Bin laden and the government never made the offer. No Clinton didn't prohibit communication between the CIA and FBI. Those communications were in place since the Nixon years. Non-existent chinese bribes. So you're 0 for 3. How is it you can't get a single thing right?
You don't know your history do you? Salem Bin Laden was involved deeply with Bush Sr and Bush Jr. In fact Salem helped bail out Arbusto Energy which George W. ran into the ground. Salem also did business with the Carlysle Group which George H.W. Bush worked for.
