Lefist environmental groups in the US and Canada have confirmed what was long suspected by admitting that the Saudi’s were their ally in the fight against the Keystone XL pipeline.

Saudi Arabia has an atrocious human rights record. Women and minorities have few rights and public capital punishment occurs frequently, one might assume this would make Leftist groups and the Saudis automatic enemies. But the Saudis and Western liberals have an issue in common that make these two groups unlikely allies — both despise energy independence.
