Bob Woodward, haking his new book, "Plan of Attack," told "60 Minutes" on Sunday that Saudi ambassador to the U.S., Prince Bandar bin Sultan, struck a deal with Resident Bush to reduce oil prices in anticipation of the presidential election in November.

"Certainly over the summer or as we get closer to the election they could increase production several million barrels a day and the price would drop significantly," Woodward said.

Of course, Saudi Arabia's top foreign policy adviser denies this in an Associated Press story.

No word on whether the official quoted is a personal friend of the former President Bush and his family, but keep in mind the denial comes from a nation that brought you 15 of the 19 hijackers who carried out the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.
