    Thanks a bunch! This is a great map to Saudi politics.

    I hadn't realized that Abdullah had put his son Mitab in charge of the National Guard, or that Mitab was so young. That gives him a pretty powerful position from which to defend his father and his own interests. But it also seems to set up a built in conflict with the rest of "conservative" camp.
