The SUSRIS project — an independent, private-sector information resource – offers objective, comprehensive news and information on the history, breadth and depth of the US-Saudi Arabia relationship. SUSRIS and its e-newsletters provide information from a variety of sources that would otherwise be difficult for most readers to collect every day. In addition, SUSRIS curates original materials such as interviews, essays and more.

SUSRIS is a private sector effort and is not affiliated with any government entity.

SUSRIS is an independent project produced by Patrick Ryan & Associates, LLC of Nashville, Tennessee.

SUSRIS is currently seeking sponsors for the Saudi-US Relations Project. For more information contact Patrick Ryan (patryan@susris.com)


The SUSRIS project began as the Saudi-American Forum in 2002 in an effort to produce authoritative information about the relationship between Saudi Arabia and the United States during a period when there were few quality sources of insights, perspectives and objectivity on the subject. Among those who inspired the project were a group of “expat” Americans who had lived and worked in the Kingdom and believed the American public deserved a truthful account of the importance and relevancy of the relationship.

Since its launch in 2003, the response to the SUSRIS project has been tremendous with monthly web site hits measured in the millions. Tens of thousands of interested readers have also signed up to receive the (free) SUSRIS e-newsletter. Moreover, SUSRIS is routinely cited by major international media as a news source.

SUSRIS works to provide information and resources that enable a clear assessment of this important relationship as well as contribute to a better understanding between the people of the United States and Saudi Arabia.

Additional relevant materials are available on the YouTube.com and SlideShare.net web sites in the SUSRIS Channels of each. SUSRIS is also available on Twitter (@saudius) and Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/saudius).
