Jordan – which is roughly the size of Idaho – is one of the west’s most important allies thanks to the fact that it’s friendly to western countries, passionate about defeating terrorists and literally a squeezed between Israel and Saudi Arabia on one border and Israel and Iraq on another border.
Seeking to impress their visitor, American advisors told the Crown Prince that he would be able to tour the set of “Star Trek: Voyager” which was then filming its second season.
Abdullah was ecstatic.
