Quite a Business Man

King Fahd of Saudi Arabia has died. At the end of this BBC article are these two paragraphs:
The monarch's decision in 1990 to invite American forces into Saudi Arabia after Iraq's invasion of Kuwait was heavily criticised within the country.

Many say it contributed to the rise of al-Qaeda whose leader, Osama bin Laden, is a Saudi-born businessman.

I don't know about you, but I find the description 'business man' and the verb 'is' to grate just a little.
