In its final report, the 9/11 Commission famously called the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia “a problematic ally in combating Islamic extremism.” To Gerald Posner, the bestselling author of Why America Slept: The Failure to Prevent 9/11, this is a gross understatement. In his new book, Secrets of the Kingdom, Posner exposes the undeniable truth about US-Saudi relations, and how the Saudis’ influence on American business and politics poses a grave threat to our security.

The result of an intensive two-year investigation, Secrets of the Kingdom penetrates the innermost layers of the shielded House of Saud and presents indisputable evidence of complicity and deceit at the highest levels—evidence that the 9/11 Commission, either deliberately or negligently, failed to consider. Using bank records and other previously undisclosed information, Posner unearths many disturbing truths and shattering revelations about the ties that bind the Saudi and US governments.

Secrets of the Kingdom is an explosive study that will have a profound impact on both US policy and Americans’ perception of their government and its extensive ties to a foreign power. Posner uncovers a disturbing picture of how two nations, despite their differing agendas, have become inextricably entwined.

Quotes & Awards

  • “No other book about US-Saudi relations packs the wallop of this devastating exposé by investigative reporter Gerald Posner. A former litigator with formidable research skills, Posner uncovers fresh evidence of the serpentine ties that bind America to this treacherous ‘ally’—ties that go far beyond our obvious addiction to Saudi oil and involve a jaw-dropping secret of explosive proportions. Powerful and disturbing, this book is a worthy follow-up to Posner’s powerful post-9/11 study, Why America Slept.”

    " Favorite chapter was "Petrol SE." Apparently, the Sauds have wired their oil fields and refineries with explosives and dirty bombs with a push-button self destruct system. Sounds crazy, but truth is stranger. "

    " Very interesting all around. I thought there would be more about the ties to the Bush family, but it was a good background to the history of the royal family. It will be interesting to see what happens in the country over the next 50 or so years. "
