Another US-backed Deep State Billionaire, Confidant of George W. Bush, Arrested In Saudi Arabia Reader 11/11/2017 (Sat) 00:19:44 Id: 0a75d2 [Preview] No. 3023

According to a new report by Middle East Eye, Prince Bandar bin Sultan - Saudi Arabia's most famous arms dealer, longtime former ambassador to the US, and recent head of Saudi intelligence - was among those detained as part of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's (MBS) so-called "corruption purge" that started with the initial arrests of up to a dozen princes and other top officials last weekend.

If confirmed, the arrest and detention of Bandar would constitute the most significant and high profile figure caught up in the purge - even above that of high profile billionaire investor Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal - given Bandar's closeness to multiple US administrations and involvement in events ranging from Reagan's Nicaraguan Contra program (including direct involvement in the Iran-Contra scandal), to making the case for the Iraq War as a trusted friend of Bush and Cheney, to directing US-Saudi covert operations overseeing the arming of jihadists in Syria.

Middle East Eye issued the report based on multiple contacts "inside the royal court" and indicates further that the scale of MBS' aggressive crackdown is much larger than previously reported, and even involves the torture of "senior figures" among those detained:

Some senior figures detained in last Saturday's purge in Saudi Arabia were beaten and tortured so badly during their arrest or subsequent interrogations that they required hospital treatment, Middle East Eye can reveal. People inside the royal court also told MEE that the scale of the crackdown, which has brought new arrests each day, is much bigger than Saudi authorities have admitted, with more than 500 people detained and double that number questioned.

And shockingly, those sources say that the longtime Saudi 'deep state' power broker and liaison with the West, Prince Bandar, is among the detained:

One of the most famous is Prince Bandar bin Sultan, a former Saudi ambassador to Washington and confidant of former US President George W Bush. There is no word on his fate, but Saudi authorities said that one of the corruption cases they are looking at is the al-Yamamah arms deal, in which Bandar was involved.

While no doubt Bandar's very well-known role in Saudi "oil for arms" programs which have come to define Saudi relations with the West over the past decades is a trumped up and "selective" charge (insofar as the highest levels of the state have overseen such shady dealing) the al-Yamamah deal in particular - which goes back to the mid-1980's - has been an historical embarrassment to both the UK and Saudi governments (BAE Systems was the prime British contractor involved) for the astounding level of fraudulent accounting exposed in UK courts.

Concerning Prince Bandar's role in the al-Yamamah deal, Middle East Eye continues:

Bandar bought an entire village in the Cotswolds, a picturesque area of central England, and a 2,000-acre sporting estate with part of the proceeds from kickbacks he received in the al-Yamamah arms deal, which netted British manufacturer BAE £43bn ($56.5bn) in contracts for fighter aircraft.

As much as $30m (£15m) is alleged to have been paid into Bandar’s dollar account at Riggs Bank in Washington and the affair led to corruption probes in the US and UK, although the case was dropped in the UK in 2006 after an intervention by then-prime minister Tony Blair.

But more likely is that Bandar has been caught up in this week's MBS dragnet for his closeness to Western heads of state and foreign intelligence services. With MBS' aggressive consolidation of power which could result in ascension to the throne at any moment, and with fate of multiple princes and officials still unknown - not the least of which is now ex-PM of Lebanon Saad Hariri - a shroud of secrecy has resulted in myriad theories concerning what is really happening behind the scenes.

Likely, Bandar has been detained to ensure a communications blackout with Western intelligence and media until MBS' plans are complete, with the added benefit of ensuring the "anti-corruption" angle to the purges for the consumption of international media.

Rumors are going around like wildfire about some of the recent Saudis being arrested, tortured and even killed: many were some of the ones that were celebrating the terrorist attacks on September 11th, 2001 at the Ritz Carlton Hotel. The Saudis were later flown out of the country, orders by George W. Bush, while all other flights were temporarily postponed.

I don't know what else to say but ...wow. [Pic possibly related?]

Hah, I wondered the same thing. I know Trump is pro oil and Saudi needs the U.S to be pro oil. I wonder how much influence that gave him.

It's not so much the Saudis want the US to be "pro-oil", more like dependent on their oil.

In reality Saudi Arabia does NOT want the US to become energy independent and start fracking and drilling on our own soil because it brings gas prices down for us and we would be less reliant upon the Saudi regime.

However this purge is not so much about oil as most might think. I have heard that the Crown Prince was informed and given classified intelligence by Jared Kushner (orders from Trump). This included documentation that their leadership was leading Saudi Arabia to peril; (not only because the Saudis have depleted resources and have lost a lot of proxy wars recently); but also because the "deep state" (US CIA / Israeli Mossad) were planning to exploit Saudi Arabia into to a war against Iran (a war they could not and would not win) and then the same "deep state" would later discard the Saudi government, steal all their remaining resources and install another Zionist puppet regime.

It was at THAT point that the Crown Prince realized he needed to purge the Saudi 'deep state' and its ilk, because if they had remained in power it would have led to very bad consequences for Saudi Arabia in the long term. Considering the Crown Prince also knew about the whole 9-11 false flag he realized these people are not loyal to their allies (let alone their own country) and can no longer be trusted... thus the purge... and thus the pivot to the East.

Why would Trump care about Saudi's future? Well, he doesn't! So what was the point of all this? To break up some of the "deep state" connections working against our interests and at the same time to send a clear message to the globalists around the world: "don't fuck with US."

Mark my words: this purge has rattled the establishments inside the US, Israel, Europe and of-course Saudi Arabia.
