Issue 40

I said it serves no purpose to continue engaging in discussions about fairness of another nation’s courts after one has availed oneself of them. — Ambassador Prince Bandar, in a letter to US Congressional House members.

The person who writes for fools is always sure of a large audience. —Arthur Schopenhauerr

There are two ways you can manage reporting. One way is to make sure that reports are balanced. The other is to steer people away from reporting on certain topics and lie about what is going on. —Burghardt – East-West Center in Hawaii.

Tell the truth and you won’t have to remember your lies. — Louis Vincenti

The American press can be silenced but not the British press. — Dr Parker, FBI


The Washington Post reports: “In the world’s oldest democracy, pressure on investigative journalists is usually exerted in sophisticated, non-lethal ways, under the public radar. Every day in Washington, D.C., thousands of government and corporate public relations flaks and lobbyists purvey their ‘talking points’ with a friendly smile, no matter how odious the client, no matter how intellectually dishonest or morally dubious their message. Journalists must trudge through the shameless ‘spin’-that vanilla word admiringly used these days instead of ‘lying’, which has a harshly judgmental, jarringly rude ring in Washington power circles.” I334 As representatives of the Saud family dictatorship, Ambassador Bandar and his consort Adel have taken maximum advantage of onerous spin, especially when dealing with US parents of children they assisted in kidnapping. They even had the capability of stifling notice of and subsequently shutting down a scheduled Washington National Press Club press conference by the parents, until the last moment. Saud family associate lobbyist Hill & Knowlton then invited the parents to their Washington office to explain what had happened in accidental terms. That is, to the best of their knowledge. Hill & Knowlton would neither confirm nor deny Saud family government lobbyists Michael Petruzzello of Qorvis was either present or received a video of the meeting.


Center for Public Integrity says: “The Justice Department’s Foreign Agent Registration Unit (FARA) … said it was unable to copy its records electronically because their computer system was ‘so fragile’. … The database details millions of dollars spent on lobbying activities by foreign governments, companies, and foundations. … As the primary collecting point of information on foreign lobbying, the database is vital to tracking the actions of foreign governments. … (Justice Department) says: ‘The basic mandate of the office is to provide information to the public.’ … The General Accounting Office … has found that FARA lacks the resources to fulfill its responsibilities. As a result, several former high level federal officials lobbying for foreign interests have not adequately disclosed their activities. … Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press says: ‘I have never heard anything like this … It sounds crazy. They have an obligation to give you this information. It’s as simple as that.’ … All individuals and firms who represent a foreign interest and engage in political activities before a U.S. official or conduct public relations are required to register with the office. … Law firms, such as Patton Boggs (representing Saudi Arabia) … Giant public relations shop Hill & Knowlton Inc. is shown representing Saudi-controlled international petro-chemical company based in Riyadh. … While the FARA office may be under-funded, the lobbying activity it is supposed to track and make freely available to the public is extravagant. One of the chief beneficiaries of the Saudis’ largesse has been Qorvis Communications L.L.C., a public and government affairs consulting firm located in the Washington, D.C. area. Qorvis’s Saudi business has spiked since the 9/11 terrorist attacks as the kingdom and its ruling royal family have battled against negative public opinion. In 2002, Qorvis was given at least $14.6 million to raise awareness ‘of the Kingdom’s commitment to the war against terrorism and to peace in the Middle East.’ Qorvis representatives then fanned out to Capitol Hill, the White House, as well as to major newspapers and television networks to spread the kingdom’s message. ‘We help them manage a public affairs and government affairs program in design to support the U.S.-Saudi relationship,’ said Michael Petruzzello, managing partner at Qorvis. ‘We are in an environment now where the pillars of this relationship need to be reinforced.’ The breadth and intensity of the PR campaign is remarkable. From April to September 2002, Adel Al-Jubair, an advisor to the Crown Prince and chief Saudi spin doctor, made more than 80 media contacts, appearing more than 50 times on television. Petruzzello and a colleague met with the White House communications staff as well as aides to the House Government Reform Committee. Pat Roush, whose daughters were allegedly abducted by their father to Saudi Arabia, believes the firm’s representatives coached her children through a television interview that aired while Rep. Dan Burton, R-Ind., visited the kingdom in 2002. Qorvis also produced issue ads and conducted focus groups, Broadcast during weekend talk shows, commercials showed a variety of Saudi royals shaking hands with American presidents, past and present. The ads were fronted by the Alliance for Peace and Justice, which was funded by the Saudi Royal Embassy and the council of Saudi Chambers of Commerce and Industry’s Committee for the Development of international Trade in Riyadh.” I335 When are these Saud family lobbyists going to be exposed for what they really are to their families, neighbors, private clubs, churches, synagogues and the world?


Associated Press reports: “An Iraqi-American businessman, accused of pocketing millions of dollars through the UN oil-for-food program with Iraq, pleaded guilty to acting as an illegal agent of Saddam Hussein’s government. … Vincent faces up to 28 years in prison on charges that include conspiracy to act as an unregistered Iraqi agent, actually acting as such an agent, violation of Iraqi economic sanctions and related violations of US tax laws. … According to U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft, ‘Vincent lobbied former officials of the United States government, who maintained close contacts to high-ranking members of both the Clinton and Bush administrations.’ ” I336 Vincent just backed a foreign government which the Neocons wanted to overthrow. Hence, he was made a fall guy open to US prosecution. The illegal agents for the Saud family government ply their trade in Washington without fear of exposure let alone arrest.


Center for Public Integrity says: “from 1998 to mid-2004 … 550 lobbying firms and teams of 3,800 lobbyists, more than 100 of whom were former members of Congress. … foreign governments, political parties and politicians complete a more intensive disclosure of activities under the Foreign Agents Registration Act at the Department of Justice.” I337 The Washington industry of Influence peddling nets almost $13 Billion per year with shadowy lobbyists ignoring rules and exploiting connections. At least one in five companies lobbying fail to file required forms and those papers filed often disappear. There are many unregistered agents in Washington, especially for the Saudi Arabian government. Through their political patronage they have been successful in sabotaging the Justice Department agency charged with overseeing foreign agents. Both the Bush and Clinton families have received monies indirectly from the Saud family government. Clinton had to chase down then Crown Prince Abdullah in Houston to fulfill a reneged promise of money while President of the United States. Among other things, former Presidents Bush and Clinton have been handsomely rewarded by the Saud family government with, among other things, substantial monies for their respective presidential libraries.


Little Rock, Arkansas Sun reports: “President Clinton’s new $165 million library here was funded in part by gifts of $1 million or more each from the Saudi royal family and three Saudi businessmen. … Clinton White House aide, Harold Ickes, spent millions airing television commercials in swing states with scripts such as, ‘The Saudi royal family…wealthy…powerful…corrupt. And close Bush family friends.’ Perhaps as a result, the Saudi donations to the Clinton library are raising some eyebrows. … A Washington Post editorial on Thursday decried the lack of disclosure of the Clinton Library’s funders, calling it ‘outrageous.’ Said the editorial, ‘the presidential libraries, though built and endowed with private funds, are public property, run by the National Archives. The public has a right to know who’s underwriting them.’ ” I338 FBI director Freeh, a devout Catholic and member of the Opus Dei became deeply disturbed at what he deemed criminal lapses of President Clinton. In one instance Clinton was to address the Saudi Arabian terrorist problem with Saud family princelings. Instead, Clinton spent just a few minutes on that crucial subject and the rest of the time shaking down the Saudi princelings. Upon leaving the presidency he wanted large sums for speaking engagements, consulting fees and millions for his presidential library. All this was for work he had done for the Saud family while President. What did the Saud family buy? They purchased the right to torture powerless US citizen guest workers. They purchased the right to kidnap US children. They purchased the use of US military personnel to protect Saud family princes from the Arabian citizens they control. As we have seen in prior issues Saud family princelings publicly denigrate the US military personnel as “hired help” and “white slaves”. It is sad to see US soldiers forced to defend these degenerates from their suborned Arab citizenry just because of their excessive Washington political payoffs. We believe all members of the Saud and bin Laden families should be permanently deported from the US.


Eyewitness News says: “Eyewitness News broke the story of alleged political corruption last year, and although it’s been quiet of late, Eyewitness News has obtained new information. … Eyewitness News got an exclusive look at documents related to the investigation, documents which reveal the true depth and breadth of what the FBI has been offered by its central witness … While his business was incredibly lucrative, by the end, … told the FBI he was quote held hostage by the politicians, and that everyone, it seemed, had their hands out. … officials are also named in the documents Eyewitness News read, and we will look at some of that information in future reports.” I339 We think it remarkable that this legal defense was allowed for fear of setting a precedent. Since the Saud family is known for their political payoffs, whenever they appear in Washington there is a frenzy of politicos and lobbyists with their hands out. It is uncomfortable, let alone embarrassing, for them to be blatantly known as corruptors. They have bought the capability of kidnapping US children and now are purchasing US asylum upon being deposed. We are watching their reprehensible moves.


The US State Department in How to Identify Misinformation pronounces: “How can a journalist or a news consumer tell if a story is true or false? There are no exact rules, but the following clues can help indicate if a story or allegation is true.

  • Does the story fit the pattern of a conspiracy theory?
  • Does the story fit the pattern of an ‘urban legend?’
  • Does the story contain a shocking revelation about a highly controversial issue?
  • Is the source trustworthy?
  • What does further research tell you?
  • Does the story claim that vast, powerful, evil forces are secretly manipulating events? If so, this fits the profile of a conspiracy theory.

Conspiracy theories are rarely true, even though they have great appeal and are often widely believed. In reality, events usually have much less exciting explanations.” I340 We find it quixotic, condescending and hypocritical the US State Department has to repeat the basics of journalism to establishment media. We know from our reliable internal sources the US State Department Arabists are worried their Saud family retirement consulting fees scam may have to be investigated by the establishment media. We find it ironic US State Department tells others how to identify misinformation when they are one of the greatest perpetrators. Perhaps some of the State Department Arabists are worried about World Court disclosure of “crimes against humanity”. We do know the World Court has an outstanding warrant against prior Secretary of State Henry Kissinger for that very reason. In any event, and substantiate each and every statement made.


Former chief of staff to Secretary of State Powell Lawrence Wilkerson in Los Angeles Times says: “In President Bush’s first term, some of the most important decisions about U.S. national security … were made by a secretive, little-known cabal. … Its insular and secret workings were efficient and swift – not unlike the decision – making in a dictatorship. … such departures from the process have in the past led us into a host of disasters, including the last years of the Vietnam War, … Watergate … the Iran-Contra scandal and now the ruinous foreign policy of George W. Bush.” I341 The foreign policy conspiracy segment relating to the Saud family has been going on since the Iran-Contra and has yet to be addressed. At some point the US establishment media will be forced to report the issue. It is hard to fathom that the Saud family Washington retainers have been able to quash lengthy media coverage for such an extended time.

Herb Mallard and Jim Baker conversing

Herb Mallard is talking to former Secretary of State Jim Baker and now leading Washington lobbyist for the Saud family. Jim and Herb belonged to the exclusive Bayou Club in Houston. The Bayou Club has approximately 200 in membership. Other members include Bob Mosbacher, Will Farish and George Bush Sr. Neil Bush has been a guest of Herb. Ken Ley has been a guest of George Bush Sr. Herb believes Jim Baker is one of the most astute individuals he has ever known. It seems the Saud family feels the same.


Daily Reckoning says: “See, during the first Gulf War, we came over to Saudi Arabia and planted military bases to protect our vital energy interests and our way of life. What we didn’t count on was what happened next. In Saudi Arabia, formerly the country with the most oil in the world, hundreds of billionaire princes live in stunning luxury… while the vast majority of the population barely scrapes by. The princes ship in whiskey and women, laughing in the face of Islam. They rule the people with a tyrannical, unforgiving grip. But because it’s America that pays for the oil… and American soldiers on the bases… it’s the Americans that fundamentalists blame for all the excesses. (Let’s not forget… 15 of the 19 madmen on September 11th were Saudi-born.) But in a Dark-Age society… where the only way a woman can escape near-slavery is to become a martyr…to blow herself up… what’s the connection to oil? The bottom line: at the grassroots, poverty-stricken level that 95% of Saudis (and other Middle Easterners) live in, that’s a compelling ‘reason’ to fight America and take control over Saudi oil supplies. And, Bin Laden and his discontented minions would not hesitate to try to overthrow the Saudi Royal family. They don’t like that the princes are allies with America. And they don’t like the debauchery such massive riches have brought to the royal family. And they don’t like living in disastrous poverty when they live on trillions of dollars worth of oil. … Suicide bombers have repeatedly struck Western compounds in Riyadh and Jeddah. These attacks are one step away from being a strike on the royal family… and the family now lives in a complete panic. We can’t coddle the evil Saudi regime any more.” I342 It is only a matter of time. Let the US citizens stop the Saud family Washington retainers’ secret Saud family US asylum scheme.


World Tribune reports: “The United States has raised the prospect of a military invasion of Saudi Arabia. The House Armed Services Committee considered the possibility of a Saudi coup and U.S. response during a hearing on Oct. 26. Saudi Arabia, with 200,000 military and National Guard troops, is the largest oil producer and exporter, with an output of nine million barrels of oil per day, according to Middle East Newsline. The Arab kingdom is the third largest supplier of oil to the United States, with more than 1.55 million barrels per day. … The response could include the deployment of three U.S. Army divisions backed by fighter-jets and airborne early-warning and alert aircraft. In all, the U.S.-led mission could include up to 300,000 troops. Congressional sources said the House hearing … marked increasing U.S. concern of Saudi instability. … The House committee was told that U.S. concern of a Saudi coup appears greater than ever.” I343 We do not know how Saud family Washington retainers could justify meddling into the internal affairs of another country. But, then again, look at how the Neocons invaded Iraq for an unjustified reason. This is indeed a very alarming concern for the United Nations. Perhaps the likes of Interior Minister Naif could be brought to the World Court for torturing US and British citizens. Perhaps the new government of Arabia would free, as a goodwill gesture, the US children kidnapped by the Saud family regime allowing them to be reunited with their US families. This may be too great an embarrassment to the US State Department as well as Saud family Washington retainers. We would not like to see them executed for such a reason.


The World Tribune reports: “princess is suing American Express for £1.2million for ‘letting’ her spend £600,000. Wall Street worker Antoinette Millard, 40, cannot afford to pay the debt. She says the credit card firm should have spotted her ‘irrational’ spending reports The Sun. Millard, from Buffalo, US, claimed to be a Saudi princess on her application. She faces trial on fraud charges.” I345 Saud family members so consistently squander money stolen from Arabian oil reserves that merchants throughout the world have no compunction against giving credit to those impersonating Saud family members. We see the likes of Prince Bandar confidant, Adel Jubair, bandying about his American Express black card so what is an enterprising US girl to do? Right on Antoinette!

From the Readership:

I don’t object to good intelligence efforts. (I was both a tactical and
counterintelligence officer in the Department of Defense and had a massive dose of the culture of intelligence work.) The professional lacking of some U.S. intelligence personal in the Middle East combined to literally enable both World Trade Center disasters, and empower Osama Ben Ladin (the kidney dialysis patient wandering around Afghanistan/Pakistan whom CIA can’t put a glove on).
Keep the pressure on the degenerate Saudi Royal family and their corrupt retainers in Washington. We are quietly routing for you.
I was told of your newsletter by a friend who thought I could add something to your information. I worked for Bechtel at the Taiff secret city mentioned in one of your issues. This is truly a massive structure but has one thing that the Saud family did not pay for. Like you mentioned how the Washington sells strategic military equipment with self destruct chips imbedded in them, Taiff has the same.
We heard you on the radio two days ago and liked what you said. It ties a lot of the child kidnappings together. We hope you send the word throughout the U.S. via these radio shows. You people are a breadth of fresh air telling it like it is in Washington. We see how a small group in Washington is profiting from the sale of our children to the Saudi Royal family. These people are the “Great Satan” which the Moslems refer, not the suffering U.S. citizens.

Dear Readership:

The treatment of Moslem Middle East countries by Washington is strangely reminiscent of the US policy towards Latin American banana republic dictatorships. Each dictatorship was forced to hire Washington lobbyists for political payoffs. House Speaker Sam Rayburn would literally pay other politicos in the hallways of Congress. When the dictator was challenged by democratic events he would declare the proponents communists with his Washington retainers ordering in the US military. We now see the Saud family calling democratic proponents in Arabia terrorists and extremists. This gives their Washington retainers the justification to order “over the horizon” US military to invade and suppress the democratic wishes of the Arab citizens in favor of the continued Saud family dictatorship. Interestingly, we have heard from our reliable sources that now King Abdullah is reducing the inordinate amount of money allocated by drug addicted Ambassador Bandar to the Washington Saud family retainers. Saud family Washington retainers were dependent on Bandar’s extreme largess and are unhappy with the cutbacks. We have been told the Washington retainers have been threatening to reduce the US military defense commitment protecting the Saud family if the baksheesh is not increased.

Herb Mallard has recently joined the London Press Club. We are adding a bureau in London. This is out of expediency since many of our sources emanate from London, especially the Saud family members assisting us. Of late, we have found immediacy necessary. There have been calls for help and, unfortunately, we were not there to aid. Herb has also been elected a fellow to the Royal Society of Art and Commerce in London for our publications exposing the Saud family’s and their Washington retainers’ human rights infractions against US and British citizens. We are honored at the accolades we are receiving from foreign press. This allows for more capabilities at combating Saud family dictatorship abuse against the powerless US and British citizens, especially children. It is sad to find Saud family Washington retainers suppressing US establishment media coverage of their atrocities committed against US, British and Saudi Arabian citizens.

Herb will continue availing himself to the US media, especially radio talk show hosts. He has already been approached by British presenters for interviews.
