Coming on the heels of the arrest of Prince Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal and other members of the House of Saud, the son of the former Crown Prince (and at one point in line to be a crown prince himself) is reported to have died on November 5th in a helicopter crash. It looks the the current Crown Prince is consolidating his power and I doubt this crash was an accident.

Its also noted by a few sources that the other 8 on board were also influential and wealthy however, few details are available at this time

This really does seem too much of a coincidence to be accidental.

Considering the activity there, why would they be flying around near the Yemen border

Unconfirmed reports indicate that the prince was in a UH-60 Blackhawk. He is the deputy governor of the Asir Region which would explain his proximity to the Yemen border

Probably shifting the power structure a bit. Someone didn't do as they were told...

What we're seeing in Saudi Arabia may be coming the US.
Lots of rumors flying around about draining the swamp, multiple arrests of top DNC officials etc.
Could be a very interesting weekend.

I wonder what the issue was that split the Saudi factions ?

It reminds me of how some related friendly other nation to the Saud conducts politics when things are becoming really tight for some key politicians..

The Saudis might be guilty of a lot of things ...and maybe their grass is about to be trimmed...and they are faking deaths to hide key people in deep cover before the witchhunt begins......usually clusters of deaths happen in helicopters...lol...because EVERYONE KNOWS no one survives helicopter crashes....lol.

It would seem we're looking at something unusual both here and in Saudi Arabia without most of the rest of the background story. As much as has come out I can't imagine that it's even 1/3 of the real story.

2018 looks to be a very interesting year.

There was a lot of Saudi money that went into the Clinton's pockets.
Maybe there is something around the corner that will implicate the leadership in a number of countries... who knows?

Saudi Arabia isn't cleaning up corruption. Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is consolidating power and removing what he sees as possible threats to his rule in the lead up to his father's abdication.

This actually started back in June when he replaced his older cousin, Mohammed bin Nayef, as CP by decree of his father the king.

Cleaning house before 9/11 details emerge? A "we took care of the guilty ourselves" bit of damage control? Longshot, but it is on the table I reckon.

Helicopter crashes are also ways to help people 'disappear.

Coincidence..... That is ABSURD, given the circumstance, absolutely absurd, not even plausible. it was a Political Hit.

Whether it remains a secret depends on the perpetrators allegiance, or there will be more death to cover those in power.

When it comes to the Saudi's, life isn't sacred. They're established Sharia Law has killed many of their own people for small innocent infractions.

"Proximity' to the Yemen border indeed. Considering the ballistic missile attack two days ago by Yemen on Saudi Capitol...
