ERIE, Pa. - A local guest speaker took the stage at the Jefferson Educational Society, discussing our relationship with Saudi Arabia.

The lecture, entitled, "U.S., Saudi Alliance: What Does the Future Hold for these Strange Bedfellows," was led by Dr. Baher Ghosheh.
He's been a professor of middle eastern studies, and cultural and economic geography at Edinboro University since 1989. 
Dr. Ghosheh points out that some refer to Saudi Arabia as a "frienemy" of the U.S.,  and explores what future American - Saudi relations could look like under the Trump presidency.
