Did the Saudis buy a president?

Salon is publishing excerpts from Craig Unger's new book House of Bush, House of Saud. Although you knew the two families were tighter than J Lo's jeans, some of the passages are just startling:
"In all, at least $1.476 billion had made its way from the Saudis to the House of Bush and its allied companies and institutions. It could safely be said that never before in history had a presidential candidate -- much less a presidential candidate and his father, a former president -- been so closely tied financially and personally to the ruling family of another foreign power. "
(emphasis mine)
