Prince Charles no longer wants to promote British arms sales in the Middle East, a new book has claimed days before he embarks on a tour of the region.
The latest biography of the Prince of Wales, which was not authorised by Clarence House, says he “doesn't like being used to market weaponry” in controversial deals with Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states.
He said in the prison deposition that he was directed in 1998 or 1999 by Qaeda leaders in Afghanistan to create a digital database of donors to the group. Among those he said he recalled listing in the database were Prince Turki al-Faisal, then the Saudi intelligence chief; Prince Bandar Bin Sultan, the longtime Saudi ambassador to the United States; Prince al-Waleed bin Talal, a prominent billionaire investor; and many of the country’s leading clerics.
“Sheikh Osama wanted to keep a record who give money,” he said in imperfect English — “who is to be listened to or who contributed to the jihad.”

If your big ole Saudi Arabia, and your surrounded by countries that houses some of the worst of the worst, and you want to get rid of them, what do you do?
Well, you could just attack them and start a war directly involving your country...or you could attack another country and make it seem like your enemies did it allowing them to clean up the Middle East for you.
15 of the 19 hijackers were Saudi citizens and the FBI hurried many Saudi citizens out of the country after the attacks. If they aren't the brainchild of 9/11 they're most likely involved some other way.
