From Viewpoint with James Zogby:
“Rob Sobhani, Author of “King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia: A Leader of Consequence”, spoke about his book, and highlighted his perspective on aspects of King Abdullah’s character. “I suppose what defined king Abdullah from the other leaders [in the Middle East] is that he’s honest”, Said Sobhani. Sobhani went on to discuss Abdullah further and explained his vitality for U.S.-Middle East relations stating: “…I firmly believe that president Obama has a once in a lifetime chance to put his hand across the table, shake Abdullah’s hand and solve some problems”, he added.” Run Time: 00:14:38.
