...So goes the statement by Admiral Doughtery in Star Trek: Insurrection, presumably about the Saudis! Or was it?

This has been at the back of my mind for years ever since I saw the film, and I wonder how the writers got away with it. This was a brave thing to say, even if Paramount would never have been able to sell a film in Saudi Arabia again.

What do others think? Good reference to the Saudis (or any other nation in control of oil), or not?
