House Votes to Block Aid for Saudi Arabia

Lawmakers cheered as the House of Representatives voted on Thursday to strip financial assistance for Saudi Arabia from a foreign aid bill because of criticism that the country has not been sufficiently cooperative in the U.S. war on terror.
The vote was a stinging defeat for the Bush Administration which had strongly opposed the measure saying it would “severely undermine” counterterrorism cooperation with Saudi Arabia and U.S. efforts for peace in the Middle East.
