CBS: Obama Lands in Saudi Arabia Amid Tensions that Have Never Been This High

President Obama landed in Saudi Arabia Wednesday to begin a week-long trip to the Middle East and Europe

BRENNAN: "This is President Obama’s fourth visit to Saudi Arabia, but tensions have never been quite this high. He will meet today with King Salman to try to heal the rift exacerbated by his recent description of the kingdom as free riders, too reliant on the American military. He also said the Saudis need to share the neighborhood with their long-time foe, Iran, but that is easier said than done."
