4. King Abdullah

King Abdullah
Country: Saudi Arabia
Age: 84
In Power Since 1995
Last Year's Rank: 5
Under King Abdullah, Saudi Arabia adheres to a punitive justice system in which young teens can be sentenced to death and defendants tortured. Women are more oppressed than in any other country—they can’t even seek medical care without a male guardian’s permission.

U.S. LINK: Every President since the 1940s has sought good relations with petroleum-rich Saudi Arabia. American companies have sold its government more than $15 billion in arms in the last decade. Last year, U.S. oil imports totaled more than $30 billion. King Abdullah promised to crack down on extremists after we learned that 15 of the 9/11 hijackers were Saudis. Yet researchers at West Point say that the largest number of al-Qaeda fighters in Iraq still come from Saudi Arabia.

American Connection
Every U.S. administration since the 1940s has sought good relations with oil-rich Saudi Arabia. Last year, U.S. oil imports totaled more than $30 billion, and over the last decade, American companies have sold Saudi Arabia more than $15 billion in arms. King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz Saud, seen here with Vice President Al Gore in 1998, has ruled the country since his father, King Faud, suffered a stroke in 1995.

Hotbed of Terrorists
In 2005, President George W. Bush met with King Abdullah to discuss the prospects for peace in the Middle East. Abdullah promised to crack down on Islamic extremists after it was discovered that 15 of the 19 hijackers on 9/11 were Saudis. However, researchers at West Point say that the largest number of al-Qaeda fighters in Iraq still come from Saudi Arabia.

Two Kings
Saudi Arabia and Jordan split allegiances during the 1991 Gulf War. Jordan approved of Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait, while Saudi Arabia backed the United States-led coalition. Good relations finally returned to the neighboring countries after both leaders ascended the throne: King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia and King Abdullah of Jordan. Last summer, Jordan honored the Saudi dictator with a military fly-over.
