Did Obama bow to Saudi king? See video
White House aide speaking anonymously: ‘It wasn’t a bow ... he’s taller than King Abdullah’,w-obama-saudi-king-bow040809.article

At any rate, despite what we may think happened, the White House spokesperson provided a reason for the appearance of the action:

The Saudi King is shorter by far than President Obama and President Obama was extending himself downward in order to greet accordingly.
