After his early-afternoon arrival in the Saudi capital, Obama is to hold talks with King Salman, 80.
Obama, who is headed to Saudi Arabia on Tuesday, discussed in an interview with Charlie Rose his relationship with the Saudi regime and the controversially classified 28 pages of the report, which some believe contain links between 9/11 terrorists or al-Qaeda and Saudi officials.
When asked by Rose if he had read the pages, Obama said he “had a sense of what’s in there.”
“But this has been a process which we generally deal through the intelligence community, and Jim Clapper, our director of intelligence, has been going through to make sure that whatever it is that is released, is not going to compromise some major national security interests of the United States, and my understanding is that he’s about to complete that process,” said Obama.
