What's new with Prince Bandar?

For those who do not know Prince Benadar, you can read about him from the Saudi embassy site or less officially: Go to the officious whitehouse website:
ADVISOR TO THE PRESIDENT
Good afternoon. I am His Royal Highness Prince Bandar bin Sultan bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud. I serve America in the important dual role of longtime Bush family investor and official spokesman for the dictatorial Islamist monarchy that produced Osama bin Laden and fifteen of the nineteen 9/11 hijackers. As a regular overnight guest in both the White House and Bush private residences in Crawford and Kennebunkport, I take great pains to selflessly dictate the President's thinking on American policy matters large and small – and have been a particularly valuable advisor in the war against eroding petroleum profits.
A favorite of the world's leaders (read UK/US), and a buddy of Collin Powel, Bandar and Powel were key players in the Iran-contra (involving shipment of American weapons through Israel to Iran, during the Iran-Iraq war.)

So what has he been up to lately?
Negotiating a £40bn arms deal between Britain and Saudi Arabia and receiving £1bn secret payments for over a decade, as a BBC probe has found.

And who is prince Bandar in cahoots with in rushing to war with Iran? Seymour Hersh revealed 6 months ago!
The key players behind the redirection [i.e. shift of Bush's mideast policy to confrontation with Iran]are Vice-President Dick Cheney, the deputy national-security adviser Elliott Abrams, the departing Ambassador to Iraq (and nominee for United Nations Ambassador), Zalmay Khalilzad, and Prince Bandar bin Sultan, the Saudi national-security adviser.

I decided to take a break instead of doing my story and see what you were talking about. Some break! Pretty compicated and convoluted isn't it?
It is common knowledge that Cheney is behind the drive to attack Iran.Once every couple of weeks a report comes out that Cheney is pushing Bush to attack Iran.
We know it will happen before Congress can stop him and before he leaves office so the next Administration will be locked into following his new middle east order.
It's funny but Iran is using Hezbollah while Bush is using Saudi Arabia who is supporting the Sunni in Iraq who are fighting Bush and the Iran supported Shiite.
As you may agree or not but this Bush created civil war Bush started when he attacked Iraq to get into the middle east with only one goal being to go after Iran, will encompass the entire middle east while Bush with his permanent presence is smack in the middle to pursue his and Israel's new order
9oil is just part of it) instead of the Islamists, Iran, Hezbollah, Syria, who want theirs.
I still have serious questions about Bandar and Saudi inolvement in 9/11 primarily because of that secret flight that took off and went to Saudi Arabia right after 9/11 and nothing was ever said. Pakistan was also deeply involved in paying Atta and who knows what else. Now they are supposed allies because Bush needs them.
This switching of sides stinks but it is normal. I was going to do me story on Bush's Iraqi refugees while Bush and Ahmadinejad endeavor to further the middle east breakdown. I am tired for some reason but you are getting me charged up so maybe I will in a while.
Good one, your intelligence on middle east matters is enjoyed and appreciated.

Glad to have motivated your upcoming post, Jim. I'll look for it.

You see:
Americans are taken Hostage by Neocons
Jews are taken hostage by AIPAC
Iranians are taken hostage by Neocons and AIPAC who have empowered Ahmadinejad.
Ahmadinejad in turn has empowered AIPAC and Neocons.

The very very very bottomline of this for me is economics!

Idiotic pawns on this board think something of great ideological importance is unraveling. Not so!

Hitler carried on someone else's project. You, I am sure know, are aware of the Bush's family's relation to the pre-Nazi German industrialists.

It is a group of billionaires on this earth who are sucking our blood. those who have religious zeal, or patriotic one take an existentialist purpose out of all this. Those who do not, like me, watch in a sad and bitter amusement.

If Bush attacks anyone, even his grandmother's backyard, I will be holding the ENTIRE American nation/army/intelligensia responsible to their impotent idiocy!

Somehow, I am not convinced the people who have built America are a gullible as the German peasants who bent to Hitler!

America is NOT a homogeneous society, it will not succumb to fascism! Bush may be in rush, but america is not empty of men of integrity. Petraeous may kiss ass, but AbiZeid won't. There will be dissent in America! America is good at reinventing itself.

All we can do is to be awake and loud.

Although this princes of the dark working hard for himself obviously, but the point is in Britton there were voices to open investigation about those bribes, but Tony Blair refused and closed all the talk about it.

I think while you talking about Saudis and their corruptions its never been new as such you should also highlight Britt’s specially Tony Bair and his government who talking all the time of freedom and democracy and corruptions in Africa and hunger their have main hand in these bribes. And should be investigates those who offer and services this process and also bring them to justice include the prince on accounts of money-laundering other charges

No wonder what the money do to the people, the one year in Iraq Paul Bremer vanished with $9.0Billion, those US contractors also their solders who steal whatever they found from Iraqi families while searching their homes, or the lost of Iraqi equities and historical items which priceless , what bout other Americans who worked or working in Iraq have level of corruptions higher than the prince who is so stupid giving his country money on exchanges for a small a mount of that money when he can easily as a Saudi Royal family member take more what the briber gave him, just stupid and fanny Prince of the Dark.

Al Yamamah Inquiry: Statements Panorama has received the following statements from the parties responding to the allegations in Monday's programme.

An article appeared in today's edition of the Guardian entitled "BAE accused of secretly paying £1 billion to Saudi Prince".
The article refers to payments made into accounts at Riggs Bank in Washington DC whist Prince Bandar was serving as Saudi Arabia's US ambassador.
"The clear thrust of the article is that the payments referred to represented improper secret commissions or "back handers" paid to Prince Bandar.
This is an extremely serious allegation against a senior member of the Saudi government and one which Prince Bandar categorically denies.
The accounts at Riggs Bank were in the name of the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Defence and Aviation (MODA).
Any payments into those accounts made by BAE were pursuant to the Al Yamamah contracts and as such would not in any way have been "secret" from the parties to those contracts.

It's funny but Iran is using Hezbollah while Bush is using Saudi Arabia who is supporting the Sunni in Iraq who are fighting Bush and the Iran supported Shiite.

Give me a break enough these nonsense statements and rhetoric statements by some who believe as if Iraqi are part with US or Iran and Part agents US.

Can I asked you which ethics belong to? So who support you?

you learn to behave politely and courteously, or I shall not let your posts go through.

Articulate your points well if you want an answer.

hey, if you're in the ruling Elite and fabulously wealthy, war is a good thing.

Nice to see the bio of the Prince and his passion for profits.

Sounds like a match made in Bush's bosom.

You can do it’s your right, but some one have a blog should be prepared for tuff questions, isn’t?

Before through your words on me look to yourself and learn,

I argue you post my comment let the reader tell if I am what you said?

But looks you are a sort of person that not like involve in real discussion and serious one.

BTW, your post not balanced as you showed many singes when it’s come to Arab, Muslims and those kings...

As long as you do not send a barrage of comments "DEMANDING" an explanation from me, you may say what you wish.

If you want me to answer to any specific question you have, you need to articulate your question properly.

I am sorry but I think it's a bit of a language barrier, I really don't understand what point you are making :)

For those kings, I have nothing but contempt.

As for Arabs, I don't think I have made any posts about Arabs at all, only about Saudi Arabian kings, who are not representative of Arabs, nor muslims, but the safe-keeper's of their American masters: the oil families in America!

As for Muslims, I don't know what is unbalanced in my posts because I don't think I have made any posts about Muslims either! :)

That said, I propose you get a name, and make a blog of your own, so perhaps I can learn what it is you are commenting about or critiquing.

Gee you sound like my departed friend Pen.

there CAN be mercy for EVERYONE on this earth. Hate begets hate, blood begets blood.

I think it is far more effective to sentence the criminals to infamy than to death. We are not the one who gives life, we are not permitted to take it away, UNLESS in self defense, never in revenge.

Same as Iran and what's Iran try to play here game in the region from repressing Shia'atisim elsewhere to Hezbollah to Iraq and .

Anonymous,

you need to take two types of lessons:

1) English
2) Logic

Why on earth you compare Iran and Saudi kings baffles me. But I agree with you Iran is NOT and doesn't want to be representative of Arabs!

However, it was Hizbollah who defended Lebanon and gave Israelies the embarrassment of the century! I wonder were were the rest of Arabs! :)

But I agree with you, the more Iran stays clear from Arabs, the better off she is! So we do have a common interest, you and I!

Don’t try putting your words in my mouth first, secondly doing mangling in the words; Ok keep your LOGIC to yourself.

Let’s be clear here "Iran is NOT representative of Muslims!"


Don’t be Hypocritical, you need to understand that, if you still living with your Persian dreams that's you not the now days world.
