American Delight

Great post--thanks very much. Sec. 319(b) of the Patriot Act authorizes the U.S. to issue a subpoena to a foreign bank if that bank holds accounts in the U.S. I'm not sure what "appropriate diplomatic channels" the Saudis are referring to in your post, but my reading of Patriot is that Treasury or the AG simply serves subpoena to the bank's representative in the U.S. I don't see where diplomatic consulation is required by Patriot.

Anyway, I look forward to any updates on Judge Huvelle's decision, and I suspect that readers of Money Jihad blog (and Creeping Sharia, Atlas Shrugs, Infidel Bloggers Alliance, et al) would also be keen to hear any updates as this case progresses because it appears that Al Rajhi Bank has something to hide.
