Democracy Now: U.S. to Sell Fighter Jets to Saudi Arabia

The Associated Press reports the United States has reached a deal to provide Saudi Arabia with 84 new fighter jets and upgrades for 70 more for a total of nearly $30 billion. The sale would come just over a year after the United States reached a $60 billion agreement to sell advanced military aircraft to Saudi Arabia, the largest-ever single arms deal in U.S. history.
