So yeah, that happened.

Why in the lindy-hopping fuck would anyone think that was a good idea?

Selling arms to Saudi Arabia is a long running US government tradition.
I'm pretty sure the KSA is the largest foreign customer of US weapons by a mile.

Pretends there's no difference between a legal and illegal arms deal.

Don't get me wrong, I think we should cut off all arms sales to the House of Saud. But the "illegal" part moves it past the usual realm of bad foreign policy.

Actually this is illegal as Trump and Co have been trying to bypass Congress when it comes to tech transfers like this.

Nope. The reports have Trump and Co trying to bypass every step of the process. So your skepticism is not that warranted.
