Cheney in the middle east

US Vice president visited Egypt and Saudi Arabia before heading to Kuwait to pay his respects after the death of its amir, Shaikh Jaber al-Ahmad al-Sabah. While in Saudi Arabia, he met with Saad Hariri, lebanese MP and son of the former slain prime minister Rafik Hariri who has a dual lebanese-Saudi citizenship and who spends most of his time between Paris and Saudi Arabia, For security concerns they say.
Cheney discussed specifically the Syrian file. No doubt that freedom is on the march in the middle east given that arab rulers are ridiculously more submissive to the US than ever before.
