Abdullah announced today that Bush’™s actions in Iraq were ILLEGAL!

King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia told Arab leaders on Wednesday that the American occupation of Iraq is ‘œillegal,’ and he warned that unless Arab governments settle their differences, foreign powers like the United States would continue to dictate the region’™s politics.

The king’™s speech, at the opening of the Arab League summit meeting here, underscored growing differences between Saudi Arabia and the Bush administration as the Saudis take on a greater regional leadership role, partly at American urging. The Saudis seem to be emphasizing that they will not be beholden to the policies of their longtime ally.

Remember, he’™s a supposed ally. With allies like that, Bush might want to start talking to Nancy Pelosi.

Edit 4:30 am: It seems that King Abdullah has also canceled out on a state dinner Bush was hosting for him. It was to have been held two weeks from now. Read about it in Jim Hoagland’™s column.
