The Dark Lord's priorities

Laura Rozen catches something important by close reading of the middle paragraphs of this story, Civil War in Iraq Near, Annan Says by Robin Wright and Thomas Ricks Washington Post 11/28/06:

Saudi Arabia is so concerned about the damage that the conflict in Iraq is doing across the region that it basically summoned Vice President Cheney for talks over the weekend, according to U.S. officials and foreign diplomats. The visit was originally portrayed as U.S. outreach to its oil-rich Arab ally.  (my emphasis)

Laura asks a very relevant question:  "Cheney doesn't consider himself subject to Congressional oversight - but he obeys Riyadh when it summons him?"

Priorities are important.  Dark Lord Cheney knows his.
