BANDAR of ARABIA – Saudi #1 Neocon – CIA & Mossad Man in Riyadh
25/07/2012
He is the CIA and MOSSAD man in Riyadh.  He is also the man who is really in charge of Saudi Foreign Policy, now with more titles and even more power to affect the course of the region.  His full appointment now as head of Saudi Intelligence, as well as the National Security Council, gives him vast powers which he will be using for a number of key Saudi purposes.  In effect Bandar is King of Arabia, and his aspires to have that full title too in the years ahead.
Bandar’s Mission and the reasons he now has such unprecedented powers:
1)  Create a new Regime in Damascus in coordination with the US and Israel.
2)  Escalate efforts to further weaken IRAN and sooner or later attempt to change the Regime in Tehran
3)  Most of all to coordinate even more closely with the CIA and Mossad to keep the Saudi Regime in power as well as key allies especially in Qatar, Bahrain, and UAE.

Weinstein, Mossad, and?

8 11 2017

With Harvey Weinstein about to be arrested, with his Mossad connections now leaking into view, and with American culture shifting as a result of his sordid ugly power sex escapades…

Is it time to investigate the Weinstein/Israel/Jews/Hollywood connection?

Trump: Keep Israel Greatest Again

6 11 2017

All American governments have been super pro-Israel, whether they wanted to be or were forced to be by politics, money, pressures, blackmail, Jewish media.   But no U.S. government has ever been as Super Zionist as that led by Trump, and his friend-of-Bibi son-in-law, and his super extremist settler-funding Ambassador to Israel.





Saudi King Dead??

5 11 2017

Things are obviously bubbling in Saudi Arabia with the unprecedented arrests of top members of the Royal family and government yesterday; plus the former Crown Prince has been under detention for some time.   I don’t know if King Salman is dead of not.  It’s not being reported anywhere on the news programs I’ve just scanned this Sunday morning.   But I am hearing the rumor from my own circles.

Whether dead of not, since taking over in 2015 when King Abdallah passed, it is Salman’s son Mohammed who has raced ahead with policies both at home and abroad, and a style, unheard of ever before since the founding of the Al-Saud dynasty.   Whether Arabia will remain “Saudi”, or even unified, is now in doubt more than ever.

In recent weeks I’ve written the following about Saudi Arabia:

The DC Political Whorehouse known as MEI

30 10 2017

Abuse and scandals are certainly not limited to Weinstein and Hollywood.  Indeed they are not limited to sexual matters.    Take the case of the Middle East Institute (MEI) in Washington DC for instance.

More and more in recent years MEI has become a political whorehouse trading “honors” and “favors” for big money.   Over and over royals from Saudi, UAE, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman and beyond, along with business tycoons from Egypt and Jordan and beyond, have paid their way to getting awards at banquets and gatherings of one kind or another; and in some cases to kind of self-publishing their books with an MEI stamp of approval.

After decades of languishing in their aging N Street townhouse near Dupont Circle MEI is in the midst of a structural remake — largely funded by the largess of Arab royals and their cronies.   They claim to be raising funds from their dwindling and actually quite insignificant membership; but that’s just the cover story for all the big bucks which wreck of oil, blood, and weapons.

In some ways MEI is a kind of retirement home and reunion gathering place for State Department hacks, nearly always with a Former Ambassador — one already collecting government money for a cushy life in retirement — double-dipping with more salary and “expenses” from MEI.

But if MEI kept just playing that role one could overlook the rest and skip the nicknaming.   Truth be told many years ago I was personally asked by the then MEI President, Ambassador Dean Brown, to be on a year-long study group charged with issuing a major report about the past, present, and future of U.S. policies in the Middle East.   It was quite a prestigious group this very young journalist new to the ways of Washington joined back then for so many meetings with so many scholars and diplomats.   But even then I knew something was wrong with MEI; and so even then decades ago mine was the only dissent published in the major report issued jointly by MEI and The Atlantic Council.    Of course, lol, as I forecast in my dissent, they never invited me back.

In recent years, now under the frizzy leadership of Ambassador Wendy Chamberlain, MEI has started holding more policy meetings in order to use the internet to spread it’s largely U.S.Government/Arab States messaging and advocacy.  So that’s the reason for this little warning comment today to help people realize that MEI is both a State Department front organization — one using largely retired Foggy Bottom officials — as well as a kind of hired contractor for rich Arab regimes and those who hang out with them.

 





More about Saudi Lobby DC

The high-powered highly-paid Saudi Lobby is far more hidden.  And besides in recent years the Saudis have enlisted the Israel Lobby on their side as well….even if they don’t realize how they are used and manipulated by it.   The Saudis are now willing to do anything at any cost that they think (rightly or wrongly) protects the “Saudi” regime and challenges their arch nemesis the Shia Persians  of Iran.

Today though a bit more about the now-thinly masked Saudi Lobby known as The National Council on U.S.-Arab Relations and its sidekick The Washington Report on Middle East Affairs.   Both of these are Prince Bandar creations back in the 80s, both are kept on a short leash, both are used and exploited at will by their Saudi sponsors/keepers.

After he and the Centcom 4-Star gave the keynotes addresses for NCUSAR last week at the Reagan Center, Prince Turki went on to have secret meetings throughout town including with the Israelis, culminating in his first public appearance at a New York Synagogue touting the Zionist version of the “Two-State Solution”

Just a few more comments about this years NCUSAR gathering:

1)  Too poor to even have a few croissants or rolls at breakfast time — just lots of coffee off in a corner area.   No Jewish or Zionist group would be so inconsiderate. 🙂

2)  No mention through the two-day proceedings of the very much heightened Saudi-Israeli alliance, including only quasi-secret visits of top Saudis to the Jewish State likely including the Crown Prince himself since their last annual gathering.

3)  The so-called “Palestinian Ambassador” gave a nothing speech and kept using the mild word “bad”, “bad”, “bad”, to describe how the Israelis treat the Palestinians without any mention of how Abbas and his “Palestinian Authority” are themselves sub-contractors of the Israelis/Americans paying his salary!

4)  The Panel about what’s going on in Palestine was totally composed of U.S. government officials and USAID contractors.

5)  Beyond all the hypocrisy from Prince Turki (see my previous comment last week) the Prince insisted the current GCC crisis has been caused by “Qatar chirping outside the flock”!   Turki must have had some new Jewish/Zionist/American speech writers added to his team.





Saudi Gathering in Washington

20 10 2017

What may be the most public arm of the Saudi Lobby in Washington held it’s annual get together at the Ronald Reagan Building this week.  It calls itself a National Council and an educational association.  But in reality it is a clever out-front p.r. group for the Saudis, the GCC, and the many corporations who cash in on all the money and arms sales.

By Washington standards just a little gathering of little consequence; but even so they did bring a few top level key-note speakers for the cameras to show back in Arabia — the 4-star General commanding Centcom plus one of the most senior Saudi spokesmen, Prince Turki, a regular actually, who got his usual standing ovation.

But listening yesterday to a Saudi cry about refugees, when his country has done so much to create their plight and so little to alleviate; and listening to a Saudi lecture Americans about “one man one vote” when his country…well we all know the realities there; and listening to a Saudis warn the Israelis that they better finally get with the “peace process”, when in fact the Saudis are now in an increasingly close behind-the-scenes alliance with the Zionist State; and listening to a Saudi continually berate and chastise and threaten the Iranians for “interfering in the internal affairs of neighboring countries and supporting terrorism”…well enough said.

In some ways little has changed when it comes to NCUSAR, The National Council on U.S.-Arab Relations.  In other ways the Saudis as well as the Americans, the Middle East as well as our world, have changed a great deal.   Here are a few flashbacks to previous gatherings of the National Council:

P.S.   No mention at the conference of JASTA or references to the very young, brash, irreverent Saudi King (actually his official title is still Crown Prince), nor of the aging King’s first ever recent Royal visit to Putin and how his Kingly deplaning escalator broke down with him on board upon his arrival in Moscow (wink).
