A foreign affairs analyst to a US government advisory group lied when he denied making derogatory remarks about Saudi Arabia.

Arabian Business, which published the initial interview with Laurent Murawiec online on ITP.net, stands by its story (see 'Potent words, softly spoken, rock US-Saudi relations'), and is making the tape of the interview, plus a transcript, available to the media and regional governments.

Murawiec talked to the magazine after presenting a paper entitled “Taking Saudi out of Arabia” to a Washington-based US government policy advisory group, whose members include senior former politicians like Henry Kissinger and Newt Gingrich.
