NARRATOR 1:
After capturing

most of the Arabian Peninsula

with the help of

the Wahhabi Islamic warriors,

Ibn Saud establishes

the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

NARRATOR 2:
The Wahhabis

were fiercely anti-Western.

They want to

go back in time

to a pure Islam that wasn't

threatened by the West.

SAUDI RULER:
It was by chance

that we discovered oil.

We were looking for water.

NARRATOR 3:
Despite criticism

of foreign presence in the Kingdom,

the King allows commercial

oil production to begin.

FEMALE NARRATOR 1:

The result is the first union

between Saudi Arabia

and the United States.

NARRATOR 4:
To accommodate

the workforce

the first Western housing

compounds are created.

NEWSCASTER 1:
The strict Islamic laws

enforced outside of these walls

do not apply inside.

NEWSCASTER 2:
West and East

came together in Egypt

when President Roosevelt

and Ibn Saud, King of Arabia...

JAMES BAKER:
They want America

present there in the kingdom

because we are their security.

NARRATOR 5:
The Saudi elite became

notorious big spenders and lost credibility

and respect among

religious conservatives.

NARRATOR 6:
In response to the

U.S. Support of Israel in the Arab-Israeli War,

Wahhabi Muslims pressured

the Saudi monarchy to stop pumping oil.

NARRATOR 7:
Those who control

the flow of oil

hold the Western

world hostage.

FEMALE NARRATOR 2:

Prices quadruple.

NARRATOR 8:
Oil was

an American national security priority.

NARRATOR 9:
The embargo

redefined the balance of power

between the oil consumers

and oil producers.

REPORTER 1:
Iraq's battle-trained army

swept across Kuwait's borders at first light.

REPORTER 2:
As a Saudi national,

Osama bin Laden offered his services

to the Royals.

REPORTER 3:

He told them he could

bring his army

from Afghanistan

to repel the Iraqi invaders

from Kuwait.

NARRATOR 10:
But the Saudis

had a better offer.

A half-million troops

from the United States.

His offer rejected,

Osama took to the streets

and mosques to denounce the U.S. ,

the Royal Family

and their unholy alliance.

FEMALE REPORTER:

Osama bin Laden this week

again lashed out

at the Saudi Royal Family.

SAUDI OFFICIAL:
We were tracking

bin Laden since the early '90s.

We stripped him

of his citizenship.

(SIRENS WAILING)

MAN:
When it became clear

that 15 of the 19 were Saudis,

that was a disaster.

A total disaster.

Because bin Laden, at that moment,

had made, in the minds of Americans,

Saudi Arabia into an enemy.

We are with you to get to...

The perpetrators of

this cowardly attack.

How dare they say

they are Muslim!

NARRATOR 11:
This is a nation

where tradition and modernity

are in violent collision.

REPORTER 4:
The Al Qaeda is thought

to have been behind the bombing.

A team of F.B.I. Agents prepare

to investigate the attack in Saudi Arabia.

FEMALE NARRATOR 3: The latest

terrorist attacks showcase the great division

between the pro-U.S. Monarchy

and the extremist Wahhabi militants

within the kingdom.
