The Obama administration has quietly forged ahead with its proposal to sell $60 billion worth of fighter jets and attack helicopters to Saudi Arabia unhampered by Congress, despite questions raised in legislative inquiries and in an internal congressional report about the wisdom of the deal.
The massive arms deal would be the single largest sale of weapons to a foreign nation in the history of the U.S., outfitting Saudi Arabia with a fully modernized, potent new air force.

Good for you Obama. I can understand why you'd want to hide this but this is a great sale. I really don't see any downside. Fighter jets and attack helos are like ink-jet printers; the real profit comes well after the deal.
