It is a place, in a country known for good manners and temperate behavior, to which foreigners are advised not to go.

Michael Ross of The Times' Washington Bureau is a member of the Pentagon press pool currently in Saudi Arabia. This report was written for the pool, whose members are not allowed to disclose their exact location. At a party the other night for workers from abroad, the mood was almost jovial, until a young Briton spoke up. "Have you heard?" he asked, fidgeting nervously with a plastic cup of Pepsi.
