Republican candidate Mike Huckabee was on CNN's Late Edition today. He condemned the Saudi court case that sentenced a gang-rape victim to 200 lashes and 6 months in prison (she was out in public with a man who wasn't a relative). He also got a few cracks in on Saudi-bred terrorism and our dependence on their oil:
Every time we put our credit card in the gas pump, we're paying so that the Saudis get rich - filthy, obscenely rich, and that money then ends up going to funding madrassas. ... America has allowed itself to become enslaved to Saudi oil. It's absurd. It's embarrassing. ... I would make the United States energy independent within 10 years and tell the Saudis they can keep their oil just like they can keep their sand, that we won't need either one of them.
We get about 14% of our oil from the Saudis.
