Al-Rasheed and Haykel on Saudi Arabia

A good episode of Bloggingheads featuring Professors Madawi al-Rasheed (King's) and Bernard Haykel (Princeton) talks about Bin Laden's death, religion in Saudi Arabia, the succession question and more. Al-Rasheed's history of Saudi Arabia is highly recommended.
