Bush Talks Tough with Prince Abdullah

CRAWFORD, Texas (AP) - President Bush is seeking relief from record-high gas prices and support for Middle East peace as he opens his Texas ranch to Crown Prince Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, the world's largest oil producer.

Bush said he'll make clear Monday that it's not in Saudi Arabia's interests to keep oil prices high. "If they pinch the world economy too much, it'll affect their ability to sell crude oil in the long run," he said in a television interview last week.
Topics that have been
removed from the meeting agenda:

  • Finding Osama Bin Laden
  • Regime change in Riyadh
  • Human rights violations (both sides)
  • Democracy in Saudi Arabia
  • Women's Rights in Saudi Arabia
  • Religious Freedom in Saudi Arabia
  • Pork Farm Subsidies and Imports
