Urge your U.S. Representative to support the Saudi Arabia Accountability Act

King Saud died today, but don't expect major changes in government policy towards Saudi Arabia.

Via Mike's America: Defunding Terror Recruitment in The U.S. (Thanks, Mike, for your comments):

The purpose of the Saudi Arabia Accountability Act is to "halt Saudi support for institutions that fund, train, incite, encourage, or in any other way aid and abet terrorism, and to secure full Saudi cooperation in the investigation of terrorist incidents, and for other purposes." Most recently, this action has been referred to the Subcommittee on Middle East and Central Asia, House Committee on International Relations.

None of the U.S. Representatives serving districts witihin the DC Metro Area is listed as a sponsor. Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) is a co-sponsor of the related Senate bill S. 1171.
