Saudi King calls for investigation into intelligence leak showing kingdom/al-Qaeda links


www.liveleak.com

The King of Saudi Arabia has strongly criticized the country's intelligence officials for disclosing a secret document, which shows Riyadh has links with terrorist activities carried out by al-Qaeda in Iraq.

According to a report by Iraq's Buratha news agency on Friday, King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz ordered a special committee to investigate the intelligence leak and inform him about those liable in the case.

Once again possible proof connecting Saudi Arabia to al-Qaeda. The same Saudi Arabia that the US sends billions to for their precious oil. The same Saudi Arabia the US supplies military weapons and technology to. The same Saudi Arabia that nationality wise comprised the bulk of the 9/11 hijackers. And finally the same Saudi Arabia that current and past US administrations have been comfortably in bed with.

Given the reactions of the Saudi King (arrested 37 potential intel leakers) it would appear this document may pose some very serious threats and show a possible funding connection. Imagine for a minute if it turns out that the Saudis are funding al-Qaeda and what that would mean to the family members of those lost in 9/11 yet alone the troop loss in Iraq/Afghanistan.

From the article:


The condemnation by the Saudi monarch comes as the Iraqi news agency disclosed the amount of money transferred by Saudi government officials to al-Qaeda in Iraq.

Saudi officials are also reported to send explosives and weapons to the terrorist groups.

I dont know why the Saudi's are worried. Our government could care less about the Saudi's role in terrorism. We will just pick some other random country sitting on a lot of oil to blame it on like we did last time. (Venezuela come to mind as a good scapegoat)

And the American people? Pffft. They have no worries there either. In general, we could care less about technicalities like who is actually to blame. And the TV will tell us what to think, so there is no point in us doing that ourselves.

Nice thread though. At least ATS'ers will enjoy it.

Unfortunately, your post (albeit dripping in sarcasm) is probably the truth of it.

I just can't imagine the US deciding to punish Saudi Arabia with a bit of 'Shock and Awe', like they did Iraq and Afghanistan... irrespective of how much the Saudis are involved with, and financing Al-Qaeda.

It ain't gonna happen ... it's not in the script

Not in the script --- for now, perhaps

But how typical of the Usual Suspects to rage at the informant, rather than address the evidence

It's the way their minds work --- they don't care about what they do -- no concience, no concept of decency or honour --- they only care when they're exposed --- and play the victim role when they are --- 'victims' of those who expose them

they make me sick

Whats called "al Qaeda in Iraq", according to a US General, started as a "virtual organization in cyberspace" called "The Islamic State of Iraq" complete with a fake leader played by an actor:

"al-Masri created a fictional political head of the Islamic State of Iraq known as Omar al-Baghdadi. Al-Baghdadi, who has never been seen, is actually an actor named Abu Abdullah al- Naima" Official press briefing

It's hilarious, Al-Baghdadi is fake, yet the US military claims to have killed him..lmao, even funnier VP dufuss Joe Biden called Al-Baghdadis supposed death "potentially devastating"..haha..

"The U.S. military confirmed Monday that Al Qaeda in Iraq leaders Abu Ayyub al-Masri and Abu Umar al-Baghdadi were killed early Sunday morning in a raid led by U.S. and Iraqi forces"

www.foxnews.com...

More from the press briefing of July 18th, 2007, Brigadier General Kevin Bergner:

"... coalition forces captured a terrorist named Khaled Abdul-Fattah Dawoud Mahmoud al-Mashhadani . . . Mashhadani is believed to be the most senior Iraqi in the al Qaeda in Iraq network . . . Mashhadani co-founded a virtual organization in cyberspace called the Islamic State of Iraq, in 2006, as a new Iraqi pseudonym for [al Qaeda in Iraq]. The Islamic State of Iraq is the latest effort by al Qaeda to market itself and its goal of imposing a Taliban-like state on the Iraqi people. This is what we have learned or confirmed from Mashhadani's capture.

Al-Mashhadani allegedly said, per the general:
"The Islamic State of Iraq is a front organization that masks the foreign influence and leadership within al Qaeda in Iraq in an attempt to put an Iraqi face on the leadership of al Qaeda in Iraq."

and..

"Mashhadani confirms that al-Masri and the foreign leaders with whom he surrounds himself, not Iraqis, make the operational decisions for al Qaeda in Iraq, and to be clear, al Qaeda in Iraq is run by foreigners, not Iraqis. According to Mashhadani, in fact, al-Masri increasingly relies only on foreigners, who make up the majority of the leadership of AQI. He does not seek nor trust the advice of Iraqis in the organization."

..in other words, AQI + LOL = CIA.

Agreed. Common folk simply would not suspend their belief of world matters and understand.....they would be struggling just to find Saudi Arabia on a map. If the document proves true the issue would have to be broken down to show common folk that your gas/oil purchases could in fact be funding the very bullets that are killing your own sons and daughters.
