Issue 39

I have often wondered how “commoner” police and military under the control of oligarchs can justify killing their neighbors and relatives. What demonic power do the Saudi Royal Family Princelings have over these manipulated enforcers? How can any Arabian Peninsula police/military officer under the dictatorship of the Saud family justify their actions? — Herb Mallard

The greatest danger to a state is when it starts to reform. — de Tocqueville


We have been informed by Saud family sources that Bandar’s drug addiction to cocaine has gotten increasingly worse. This has manifested itself in abandoning his Ambassadorial responsibilities for the seclusion of his US palaces. We reported he has recently committed several indiscretions during public functions, one instance noticeably accosting a young blond woman. We do not know what Bandar and his associates do behind his Aspen palace security. We wish Ambassador Prince Bandar the best at his new job, after detoxification.


US Immigration and Customs Enforcement said: “driver at the Embassy of Saudi Arabia in Washington, D.C. to secure fraudulent Saudi diplomatic visas to help aliens enter the United States illegally. … Allan Doody, ICE Special Agent-in-Charge for Washington, D.C. ‘Anytime you have an individual exploiting his post at an Embassy to smuggle people into this country, it raises serious homeland security concerns.” H319 The World Tribune reports: “The United States has ordered the expulsion of dozens of Saudi diplomats suspected of helping promulgate Al Qaida ideology, diplomatic sources said. The State Dept. has refused to either confirm or deny the action. … an effort to crack down on Saudi efforts to promote Al Qaida interests in the United States. … They did not include Saudi ambassador to Washington, Prince Bandar Bin Sultan, the longest serving diplomat in the United States. The Washington-based Saudi Information Agency … said Saudi ambassador Prince Bandar Bin Sultan has refused to take responsibility for the Saudi embassy in Washington. The agency cited a source as saying he hasn’t entered the embassy in years. ‘Many diplomats have not seen the ambassador for years,’ the source said. ‘Bandar spends most of his time at his mansions around the U.S. and the world, instead of carrying on his ambassadorial duties.’ ” H320 Ambassador Bandar was allowed to neglect his duties as ambassador allowing for criminal activities at the Saudi Arabian Embassy which, in turn, endangered US citizens. We believe he was allowed to be an absent drug addicted ambassador because he continued to give his Washington retainers money. Washington retainers continue to sell the inalienable rights of US citizens to the Saud family. When will this behavior stop?


UPI/Arnaud de Borchgrave reports: “They are brothers-in-law who have known more secrets and embarked on more secret missions than anyone else in the world during the last quarter-century. One is Saudi Arabia’s outgoing ambassador to the U.S., the other, his successor, who headed Saudi intelligence for 24 years. … Bandar accumulated a multibillion-dollar fortune during his 20-year Washington diplomatic reign. He was unfailingly helpful to U.S. defense industries, advising them on where to turn in Saudi Arabia for lucrative after sales services. His legendary 55,000-square-foot, 200-acre mountaintop “Hala Ranch” domain outside Aspen includes a replica of a British pub. It has 19 bathrooms and is larger than the White House. Bandar and his wife Princess Haifa, the late King Feisal’s daughter, are seldom in Washington, where his vast nine-acre compound on Chain Bridge Road overlooks the Potomac. It has one 26-room house for staff and the main residence with 15 bedrooms. Some of his other homes include a country mansion and the entire village of Glympton ($90 million, including renovations) near London, a palace in Morocco, a palace in Riyadh and a palace-cum-beach house in Jeddah. … Bandar’s successor as ambassador to the United States is Prince Turki bin Feisal, ambassador in London for the last three years and formerly head of Saudi intelligence for 24 years. … One of Turki’s assets was Osama bin Laden, … He also took under his wing Arab and other Muslim volunteers funded to fight in Afghanistan by Turki and wealthy princes and private sector entrepreneurs. … Bin Laden told Turki the royals must not invite the U.S. Army to the kingdom … Bin Laden became convinced the royal family was conspiring with Washington to facilitate the occupation of Saudi Arabia and control of its oil production facilities and that Saddam had been entrapped into invading Kuwait to provide a pretext for U.S. occupation. … A yet unsolved mystery was when Turki resigned as intelligence chief after a quarter-century at the helm — just three weeks before September 11, 2001. He says it was merely coincidence. Conspiracy theorists believe Turki knew something very big was in the works and that some Saudis were involved. … He has many friends in the United States and will be a welcome change after Bandar.” H321 Herb Mallard knows Arnaud and his subtle sense of humor. They have many friends in common and Herb has been a guest at Arnaud’s residence. Arnaud has exposed many secret dealings during his Washington career. Herb says Arnaud is a “read between the lines” “can do” kind of guy who has had a remarkable continuing career.


London Times reports: “Diana Bilinelli’s offer to sell lion’s share of a $250-million judgment comes with a hitch …The ex-wife, Diana Bilinelli, has battled for two decades to collect the assets of her former husband, Mohammed al-Fassi, an eccentric Saudi sheik best known for angering his Beverly Hills neighbors by painting his mansion and its outdoor nude statues garish colors. … his sister, Hend, married Saudi Prince Turki bin Abdul Aziz. …Under Saudi law, sheiks and others may have as many as four wives. Bilinelli was expecting her second child by al-Fassi when he married aspiring American actress Victoria Sosa, who weeks later alleged that he had bitten her and held her prisoner. … The sheik died in Cairo of an infected hernia in 2002 before settling the debt and after claiming he had transferred everything he owned to members of the Saudi royal family, including Saudi King Fahd and Fahd’s brother, Prince Turki. In April, King Fahd and Saudi Arabia were removed from the case, leaving Turki liable by default after he failed to appear in Los Angeles Superior Court. … In the meantime, Bilinelli’s attorneys and private investigators have failed to find Turki’s assets in U.S. financial institutions. A request to examine records at the Carlyle Group… was countered with a terse “No records to report.” … Bilinelli and her team are considering a plan to offer 1% of the take to anyone who can direct them to any Turki asset anywhere in the world.” H322 We reported Prince Turki was implicated with al Fassi importing to and torturing slaves in Miami. During this episode Turki was instrumental in obtaining retroactive diplomatic immunity for al Fassi from the US State Department Arabists who were, in turn, given Saud family consulting fees upon retirement. Is this the type of man US citizens deserve to represent the corrupt Saud family dictatorship? How can Washington politicians, readily knowing his blatant criminal behavior, justify accepting Turki’s credentials?


Intelligence Whispers reports: “The bank, Al Taqwa … ceased operations after its assets were blocked by a US Treasury Department order, its assets were frozen by the Swiss government, and its banking license was revoked by the Bahamas. …
Al Taqwa … reportedly involved in funding terrorist operations around the world, including the procurement of nuclear material from the former Soviet Union through Baltic intermediaries. …
The Al Taqwa connection to weapons of mass destruction proliferation, Bin Laden, and George H. W. Bush and his business associates stands as another reason the George W. Bush administration leaked the CIA’s Brewster Jennings & Associates counter-WMD network. The CIA counter-proliferation team was getting uncomfortably close to tying members of the Bush family and their business associates to the same financial networks that fund Osama Bin Laden and his “Al Qaeda” network. According to Williams, reliable sources indicate that these bombs may already be in the possession of al-Qaeda operatives [in the United States].” H323 Intelligence Report states: “In 1996, in Grozny, Chechen mafia members negotiated the sale of 20 nuclear ‘suitcase bombs’ to representatives of Osama bin Laden. Bin Laden paid for them $30 million, and added 2 tons of heroin.” H324 Reliable sources have told us it is well known in Saudi Arabia that Prince Turki was involved in these illicit operations as intelligence director for the Saud family government. Is this the man who is to be accepted as ambassador to Washington from Saudi Arabia without proper Congressional due diligence.


UPI in comments: “while the Israeli lobby [AIPAC] has a powerful influence on the American Congress and media, the Saudi lobby is just as powerful and successful. The apostate al-Sauds send their smiling English-speaking sons like Ambassador Bandar to America – he owns the Congress — and Prince Turki to Britain and our infidel enemies believe they are dealing with true leaders of the Arabian Peninsula. And even more, the al-Sauds buy the loyalty of retired ambassadors, generals and intelligence officers to lobby the Congress and White House on their behalf. All the while, and for this all praise is due to the Lord of the Universe, our blessed Ulema in the Land of the Prophet (peace be upon him), are using funds from the al-Sauds to finance and preach the spread of God’s word around the globe, and nowhere more aggressively than under the nose of the Bush administration right here in the United States. Islam’s huge coming generation of Muslim youth is being educated by our Ulema in what the Americans call Wahhabism — an Islamic theology more martial and ruthless than the Salafism of al-Qaida. The American elites take the al-Sauds’ word as they would take a hallucinogenic drug. It denies them contact with reality and they believe — they truly do, Brothers — that Saudi Arabia is their ally, and all the while Saudi clerics are lighting a worldwide anti-American fire. God is great.” H325 AIPAC and the Saud family have repeatedly secretly colluded to deny Arabs and US citizen’s human rights. We do not know how much longer Saud family Washington retainers will be able to sell the rights of US citizens, including children, to the Saud family. Has Washington past the point of no return? When will the US citizens be told what Middle East citizens already know? The US establishment media charade must stop? The planned Saud family US political asylum must be stopped.


UPI/de Borchgrave reports: “Mr. Bush indirectly referenced Iran, Syria, Egypt, Algeria, Tunisia, Sudan, Saudi Arabia, Qatar (where the U.S. Central Command has its advance headquarters), Pakistan, China, and most of sub-Sahara Africa as countries that must opt for free elections and democratic institutions or our own freedoms will be imperiled. One can argue, equally convincingly, that if these countries followed Mr. Bush’s prescription, our freedoms would indeed be imperiled.” H326 We find it curious that President Bush would cite Saudi Arabia as a country on his radar in need of a governmental change, considering the Saud family dictatorship is a long standing patron of his family. Saud dictatorship undisclosed Washington foreign agent retainers could be concocting another ruse to ply more monies out of there benefactors. This is a common scheme with Washington lobbyists whereby they will perpetrate a crisis against their client in order to increase billings. We reported a similar scheme perpetrated by Clinton/Brown/Richardson during their human rights shakedown of foreign oligarchs.


The New York Times reports: “The episode has been retold so many times in the last three and a half years that it has become the stuff of political legend: in the frenzied days after Sept. 11, 2001, when some flights were still grounded, dozens of well-connected Saudis, including relatives of Osama bin Laden, managed to leave the United States on specially chartered flights. Now, newly released government records show previously undisclosed flights from Las Vegas and elsewhere and point to a more active role by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in aiding some of the Saudis in their departure. The F.B.I. gave personal airport escorts to two prominent Saudi families who fled the United States, and several other Saudis were allowed to leave the country without first being interviewed, the documents show. … The material sheds new light on the aftermath of the Sept. 11 attacks, and it provides details about the F.B.I.’s interaction with at least 160 Saudis who were living in or visiting the United States and were allowed to leave the country. Some of the departing Saudis were related to Osama bin Laden. … The Sept. 11 commission examined the Saudi flights in its final report last year, and it found that no Saudis had been allowed to leave before national airspace was reopened on Sept. 13, 2001” H327 Intelligence Whispers reports: “Financial ties between Al Qaeda, Saudi Arabia, and American banks do not end with the Texas payments. A former chief of Mossad confided that Israeli intelligence was well aware that Al Qaeda funded its activities through the top six U.S. banks; including Nation’s Bank … The copies were provided by Israeli military intelligence. The source of the funds was Saudi. Furthermore, a U.S. intelligence source recently confided that Florida Governor Jeb Bush was heavily involved in the spiriting of members of the Saudi Royal family out of Florida on a U.S. government plane after the attacks of September 11, 2001. A third check provided by Israeli military intelligence is drawn on the Saudi American Bank, which has an office just across the street from the Saudi Embassy in Washington, DC in the Watergate complex. The former head of Saudi intelligence, Prince Turki bin Faisal, who acted as the Saudi government’s main interlocutor with Osama bin Laden, is due to take up the post as Saudi ambassador to the United States.” H328 It is disparaging to see the actions taken by the Bush family after 9/11 bounced and twisted around by Washington bureaucrats whose present salaries are paid for by US taxpayers. Plain and simple, Ambassador Prince Bandar and prior President George Bush Sr arranged to have members of the bin Laden and Saud families sequestered in certain areas of the US by flying them around within the US when all other flights were grounded. No one was allowed to interrogate them. After the US airspace was reopened they were secretly allowed to fly out of the US. The Saud family is the prime patron of the Bush family and has the ability to demand such preferential treatment. With bagman Bandar’s corrupt Washington reward scheme, it is assumed those Washington bureaucrats who questionably assisted the Saud and bin Laden family members will be rewarded with Saud family lobbyist consulting fees after their government service retirement. We cannot believe Washington will accept Prince Turki as ambassador when his complicity in overt criminal acts against US citizens is so apparent. We can see how citizens of the US should be finally given the information about the “Great Satan” members lurking in Washington. It is a travesty the US establishment media will not divulge the acts of these people to US citizens.


London Sunday Times reports: “The Philippine government has warned young women going to work as maids in Saudi Arabia that they will be sexually harassed by Saudi men and slapped about by their Saudi mistresses … a life near slavery. The Philippines labour ministry has also told young male workers heading to Saudi Arabia that they must expect to be at risk of rape.” H329 The Saud family government has manipulated Sharia law so as to make it easy for the princelings to rape foreign boys without the threat of legal recourse. The Saud family, being rife with homosexual princes, contorts Sharia law to mollifying aberrant sexual practices of the princes. We do know that Naif has a partiality towards male guest worker rape as a torture by his Department of Interior, witness British Scotts Guards veteran Kieth Charmichael. We have been told by reliable sources he frequently watches the rape videos as amusement.


BBC News reports: ” ‘We can confirm that Mr Idi Amin died from complications due to multiple organ failure,’ the source at King Faisal Specialist Hospital in the Red Sea city of Jeddah.’ … Amin, one of the bloodiest despots in Africa, has been living in exile, chiefly in Saudi Arabia, since being ousted from Uganda in 1979. He was in his late 70s. … Exiles accused him of having kept severed heads in the fridge, feeding corpses to crocodiles and having one of his wives dismembered. Some said he practiced cannibalism.” H330 One torture that especially delighted Idi was to put a hot pan over a rat on a man’s torso. The rat then digs a hole through the man’s torso in an attempt to escape. Idi was granted lavish exile by the Saud family in a palace outside Jedda in order to teach his tricks of the torture trade to Naif’s Interior Department. Many of Idi’s tortures have been applied upon prescribed British and US foreign workers. We do not know how the Saud family protected Amin from prosecution in the World Court from “crimes against humanity”.

Interior Minister Prince Naif bin Abd al-Aziz


Mark Hollingsworth author of Saudi Babylon “Saudi Babylon: Torture, Corruption and Cover-up in the House of Saud” says: “Sandy Mitchell … working in a hospital in Saudi Arabia as an anesthetic technician … was kidnapped by Saudi Arabian police … taken to an interrogation room in a prison in Riyadh. … Their response was to start hitting me with a pick-axe handle. They beat me all over my body. They brought in a huge 22 stone Saudi to sit on me while they beat the soles of my feet. They forced a metal rod between my knees and hoisted me upside-down, and beat me on my exposed buttocks. … they wanted him to confess to planting a bomb that had killed another Briton … They kept on hitting me. The only time they broke off was when they went to pray. … ‘Try to relax more,’ the doctor suggested … When Mr. Mitchell protested that he was being tortured, the doctor calmly replied: ‘They all say that. You’ll just have to cope the best you can.’ … ‘because I had assisted anesthetists twice when Prince Naif was being operated on. I had had him prone on the operating table twice. He had even given me a gold watch as a present for my work. But I was tortured because of the orders of that man.’… he had been taken out for a trial in a building on ‘Chop-Chop Square’, the notorious location of Riyadh’s public beheadings. The trial lasted 10 minutes. … Saudi lawyers came in and said I would be released if I signed a letter to the King apologizing for the bomb. I refused. … We had to wait nearly three years. … They’d (London lobbyists and politicians) rather help British businessmen sign arms deals with the Saudis than stop British people being tortured by them. ‘What irks him most is that the Foreign Office still hasn’t made a public statement in which they proclaim Mr. Mitchell and the other men’s total innocence and criticise the Saudi Arabians for framing and torturing them. ‘They won’t do it,’ ” H331 It is evident the corrupt infrastructure of lawyers, lobbyists, politician’s et al in both London and Washington are complicit in such human rights infractions. These perpetrators of evil are well paid by the Saud family for their dubious services. One cannot argue when voices of Islam call this cabal Satanical. We know the World Court would like to bring some of these human rights abusers to trial.


Makka Time reports: “The US agency that owns the World Trade Centre site … The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey said in a statement on Friday it was joining a $7 billion lawsuit filed last week against the Saudi government … accuses the Saudi Arabia Government of providing “funding and material support and substantial assistance” to al-Qaida and Usama bin Ladin. … suit specifically names four Saudi officials, saying they organised and controlled a network of financial institutions and charities that aided al-Qaida for at least seven years before September 11. The four are the Saudi Interior Minister Nayif bin Abd al-Aziz Al-Saud, Defence Minister Sultan bin Abd al-Aziz Al-Saud, the governor of Riyadh Salman bin Abd al-Aziz and the former intelligence chief Turki al-Faisal. Al-Qaida has also been named as a defendant, along with a number of Saudi corporate entities and charities.” H332 US lawyers have a penchant for casting a wide net and bringing as many deep pockets into their court case as possible. This behavior is highly effective in forcing out-of-court settlements from those who cannot afford legal discovery upon their questionable behavior. We have been told by reliable sources many these lawyers purchase litigious information from the Saud family Washington retainers, the very people allegedly defending Saud family issues. This should be very disturbing to the Saud family “old ones” who rely upon their Washington retainers. These lawyers would like nothing better than for the Saud family princelings to be granted US political asylum and have their degenerate behavior subject to US juries. It will be a virtual feeding frenzy.


Observer reports: “Outrage! had merely linked to a report from al-Jazeera which stated that Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, foremost theologian of the Muslim Brotherhood, had ruled that the an Arab princeling (Saud family) should be stoned to death if claims that he was gay were true. Outrage! checked. Al-Jazeera hadn’t withdrawn the report, nor had Qaradawi’s Islam Online website condemned it. The best test of the veracity of any story is to ask if you would be taken aback if it was true and, in this case, neither Outrage! nor anyone else who has followed al-Qaradawi’s career was at all surprised. The cleric has been clear and consistent about the punishment homosexuality deserves. The death penalty only seems cruel, he argues, until we understand that it is necessary ‘to keep [Islamic society] clean of perverted elements’.” H333 If the homosexuality of the Saud family princelings is to be exposed to Islamic scrutiny the vast majority of princelings would be susceptible to harsh Islamic laws. This will never happen. The old Washington maxim of “the one that controls the investigation wins” applies since the Saud family contorts Sharia law.

From the Readership:


We are parents of a child kidnapped by the Saudi Royal family. We were confidentially told our daughter is in a Saudi palace by a U.S. State Department official disgusted with the kidnappings of our U.S. babies. We were told the Washington politicians had to circumvent the Hague Convention to facilitate the Saudi Royal family kidnappings.

When the USA ratified the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction, it was put into force by I.C.A.R.A. The terms of the Convention state that the government had to establish a Central Authority that would handle cases of abducted children. In 1988 the U.S. president told the State Department to create an office that would serve as the “Central Authority”. Office of Children’s Issues was formed. This office handles international child adoption as well as international abduction [only cases were children taken from the U.S.]. Now it gets interesting. OCI has the power to contract with and work with other agencies it sees fit. So…OCI asked that any cases of children abducted to Saudi Arabia out of the USA not be handle by them, but rather by NCMEC [National Center for Missing and Exploited Children]. While this is supposed to be a private non-profit, it is funded and supported by Department of Justice (DOJ) and has support of U.S. Presidents. No problems with NCMEC.

Back to OCI…OCI works to protect all Saudi cases from possible recovery by the U.S. parents. They inform the Saudi Royal family of parent’s intent to recover their child. In our daughter’s case, they actually brought the Saudi prince into the embassy telling him to keep her hidden to avoid exposing State Department complicity. The USA is the only Hague country that has designated their Central Authority out of their State Department. All other 60 countries designate their Central Authority out of their Justice Departments. This is just like when you mention logistical supply for our Iraq War I troops was taken from the Pentagon and given to the State Department just before that scam.

Why would the U.S. President designate the U.S. State Department as Central Authority and protect Saudi interests? Saudi Arabia is NOT a Hague country to start with. How much money has been given to the Bush and Clinton families by the Saudi Royal family? How much money has the Saudi Royal family given to their presidential libraries? What about our poor babies?

Dear Readership:

We are collecting an impressive amount of information from the Middle East, especially from our Saud family reliable sources. It is appalling that the Saud family Washington retainers have been able to keep information about Prince Turki’s past from being vetted both in the media and in Congress. We have been informed Turki was told to resign as longstanding head of Saud family intelligence just before 9/11 in order to give him a plausibility of denial during ambassadorial scrutiny. What we have is a rendition of the bigger lie theory whereby the Saud family is continually muffled in the media. We cannot believe the US establishment media has allowed this sham to go on for as long as it has, foreign press prints it. It is sad to hear of US child sex slaves in Saud family palaces protected by “over the horizon” US military personnel. A past issue noted how US Marine Maes was ordered to Saudi Arabia during Iraq War I to protect the Saud family government after his Father had been poisoned by King Fahd’s nephews. He said: “I have been ordered under threat of court martial by the Pentagon to protect the murderers of my Father.” How many US military personnel have had their or their friends US children kidnapped by the Saud family princelings while protecting the Saud family regime? We are receiving more and more information from our reliable sources on these matters and we thank them very much.
