Now the Islamic State claims its fighters crossed the Saudi border from Iraq and "melted" into the local population.
Newsweek picked up the story, citing Islamic State social media posts.
Yes, it's impossible to verify the accuracy of the story; hard to say if IS fighters really did cross as claimed, or if the Islamic State is just playing head games with the Saudi regime.
But the bottom line is IS (aka ISIS) seems to have Saudi as a top target right now.
Western nations best be guarded about letting their oil drilling and alternative energy infrastructure suffer long term harm based purely on Saudi boasting of continued cheap oil.
