Qorvis Communication Quacks For Kingdom

"Qorvis Communication is helping Saudi Arabia lash out at critics who believe the 'blanked-out' section of the Congressional 9/11 report exposes the Kingdom's involvement in the terror attacks," O'Dwyer's PR reports. "The Bush Administration demanded that the 28-page section dealing with the role played by Saudi Arabia and other governments in 9/11 be omitted from the 900-page report." Qorvis has a $200,000 a month contract with the Kingdom for PR work. Saudi Arabia spent $288,000 at Patton Boggs -- a well connected D.C. lobbying firm and a Qorvis affiliate -- for scheduling and accompanying Embassy officials to meetings with Members of Congress and their staffers, according to a February 2003 O'Dwyer's story.
