Prince Bandar bin Sultan, Head Of Saudi Intelligence, Has Been Sacked

Tyler Durden's picture




 

In the aftermath of the disastrous, for both the US and Saudi Arabia, false flag campaign to replace the Syrian regime with one which would be amenable to allowing a Qatari gas pipeline to pass underneath the Al-Qaeda rebel infested country, there were numerous rumors that the reign of Saudi's infamous former ambassador to the US and current intelligence chief, Prince Bandar "Bush" bin Sultan - the man who we suggested was the puppetmaster behind the entire failed operation - had come to an end. Some two months ago, Shia Post reported that "News sources announced that the chief of the Saudi spying apparatus Bandar bin Sultan has been dismissed... Since creation of crisis in Syria by Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey, Bandar bin Sultan’s name has been heard time and again in tandem with the Syrian crisis."

Moments ago, in a tersely worded statement from the Saudi Press Agency, it was indeed confirmed that, perhaps in response to his failed handling of the Syrian conflict, Prince Bandar has indeed been sacked.

A royal order announced here today that Prince Bandar bin Sultan bin Abdulaziz was relieved of his post as Chief of General Intelligence upon his request and that General Staff Yousif bin Ali Al-Idreesi was assigned to act as Chief of General Intelligence. The royal order will be carried out by the concerned authorities with immediate effect.

Hardly surprising, here is the explanation why the person who was once one of America's most bosom allies in the Middle East, just got the boot:

Bandar bin Sultan is one of the main mindsets and players of regional insecurity especially in Syria, Iraq and Lebanon. His supports for terrorist groups acting in Syria are not hidden to anybody. This Saudi prince has very close relations with the armed terrorists in Syria. Recently he had lashed out at the Al-Saud family over its way of backing terrorists. These criticisms have annoyed Saudi monarch Abdullah.

 

Nevertheless, perhaps one of the reasons for firing Bandar bin Sultan was the issue raised by some Saudi authorities as Riyadh’s “failure of foreign policy” regarding the Syrian crisis. Some of the political pundits have said that Sultan’s performance of the recent months have even worried Washington. Now, it is expected that with the designation of Mohammad bin Nayef bin Abdul Aziz as the new chief of the Saudi security, the Washington-Riyadh ties will be normalized since this figure of the Saudi royal family is trusted by the US officials.

 

Apart from all surmises, Bandar bin Sultan is considered as one of the successors of the monarchial regime. Bandar has been regarded as a powerful figure in the war of power among the Saudi princes. It seems that his obstinacy in decision-making was another cause of King Abdullah’s fear of his power. This fear has reached the extent that the senile Saudi king has made up his mind to sack Bandar bin Sultan from the most important security apparatus of the country in a bid to alleviate part of the internal criticisms and promote Mohammad bin Nayef’s position. Furthermore, changes in the Saudi security apparatus will pave the way for maintaining the demands of the US regime; especially that, according to some news sources, Mohammad bin Nayef’s appointment has been done after the US officials’ order.

But don't cry for the Prince - his net worth is estimated to be well in the billions.

He says that their bonds have been acting terribly in this Nikkei selloff because "yields haven't collapsed". Not sure what he means by that.

I watched it again and my guess is he means that yields should have fallen further while the nikkei has had this 15% drop, But that's kind of crap. First off the 10yr JGB is down to .60 from 1% a year ago. So...i mean....holy shit. Secondly this has not been a vilent drop. No 700 point dumps. It's been a very steady orderly demolition. I have no doubt the Nikkei will reclaim 14k tonight. 

Basically I think Kyle was flailing there if that was his rationale. Also he believe a government (like the rest of them) that have all been faking data, will now release elevated inflation statistics, that they know will cause a bond selloff. 

Meh...

Easiest trade in history. Fukushima guarantees it. All he did was bet on widespread death from nuclear fallout. Now well under way.

Easy money when you know several hundred million people will die within a relatively short timespan, and take the economy with it.

OTOH, there is nothing Kyle or anyone else can do about it, so why not make money off of it?

I don't know if he's a monster or a saint, but either way he's going to get much, much richer.

Right now, he's trying to figure out how to short the Pacific Northwest. Done deal.

This is huge.  To give Bandar the boot in such a way means that something big is shifting beneath the sand.

 

I think this is further evidence of a big thaw in the US / Saudi (dollar / oil) partnership.

Quite the opposite. He pissed Putin off, and now we know where the wind is blowing - and it isn't West. If the Saudi family ever wants to do business with Russia, Putin is going to want Bandar's head on a stake.

SA is on their own now. I hope they learn to speak Mandarin.

According to the article, he asked to be dismissed.

 

If that is the case, perhaps he no longer feels comfotable jetting around the world.  Maybe he plans to stay inside Saudi Arabia for a while in hopes that Putin will forgive, forget, or die.  Good luck, Prince.

I don't know that Bandar is a puppet. I think he's one of the satanic warlocks fairly high in the food chain. One of the thieves vying for power. I'll be interested to see where he lands - whether or not he tries to regain influence and power, or retires back to the looney bin he spent the last few months in state side.

 

I would loved to have been a fly on the wall in the back rooms, sacrificial chambers and ivory towers to see the hysterical conversations between the cadre of sociopaths trying to manage this international abomination.

And you may have noticed, it was either a bluff, or fully countered by Putin.

Which is why he had to go bye-bye. Sauds have enough problems without Vlad fucking them as well.

Don't forget this guy was in on 9/11, Iran-Contra, and the clusterfuck in the 90's in what was once called Yugoslavia.

The main question...is the next guy just as in bed with terrorists, worse, or perhaps slightly less?

Saudis began questioning the benefits of special relationship with US after getting stabbed in back over Syria and nuke negotiations with Iran. Bandar was arguing for continued alignment with west (praying for Jeb 2016) but others advocated pivot to the east. Bandar getting the boot brings dire portends for the petrodollar.

Most of the geriatric regime in Saudi Arabia is but one heartbeat away from the Big Sack, anyway. The destabilizing of the Saudi government has long been a leading candidate for the black swan event that finally brings about fin de siècle.

He didn't get "sacked" he got "wacked".  The question should be who killed him?

Was it an inside job because he was making his own deals off the reservation?  Or was it indeed Syria with a little help from some outside friends who had interests with Syria.

Thierry Meysson of Voltairenet was one of the first to report him missing from both Riyadh and his home in Aspen.

http://www.voltairenet.org/article175173.html

The meeting with Putin last year was from an earlier meeting file picture. Question is why? And his visit with Jerry Jones in Dallas was never corroborated...  If he's in hiding and it was a "double" that got it???  God knows the terrorists that these motherfuckers are they don't leave home without one might have happened?

No wonder the Bush family made him an honorary son!

Really is too bad so much of the world's oil and to a lesser degree natural gas is under Saudi Arabia.  Never had much interaction with Saudi women (applies to almost all Westerners) but the Saudi men I have met whether it was in Boston during college or afterwards are one of the few ethnic groups I have very little positive feelings or experiences towards.

So,the Saudis are dealing with China.They know they blew the Syrian situation and were lied to by the Administration.They got sucked in with the Shia hate story along with the development of atomic weapons by Iran story headed by the current far right wing Israeli government.Iran will regain its economy through the Eurasian trade pact with Russia & China now.The Saudis know that America is now self sufficient in oil so it's a new ball game.And with the slow world economy,they also understand that OPEC is essentially dead in the water with no pricing power.Russia & Saudi are the two big producers.I think Saudi now sees where the future is.It's with over half of the earth's population in the east which includes India.Saudi Arabia knows it is a lot farther ahead financially to make peace with Iran so that it can partake in the alternative financial system that's being developed by China & Russia.They've already got the design with the BRIC countries.It's also like an alternative IMF with each member putting in billions to support their own.They'll need the Saudi support.And,guess what?Saudi's gold.It all means gradually less recycling of Dollars back into America and less support for the American national debt which is currently over 17.5 trillion and projected to climb over 19.5 soon.Slowly,the Market will force the U.S. to control itself financially.There's one expression for the whole picture and it's "lack of confidence around the globe in Washington politicians."They've been caught in their lies internationally too many times now and they look like amateurs compared to Russian diplomats.You thought it was the support headed by John McCain for Al Queda in Syria?No,it's also McCain's support along with the CIA's help in the Ukraine  using right wing neo-nazi groups to overthrow a government that finally broke the camels back.What stupid politicians and the head of the CIA don't understand is that ordinary people worldwide are watching their stupidity on the evening news.What a sick joke Washington has turned out to be.Two bit thugs.Obama really got screwed royally in the public's eye when he decided to get Republican support by letting McCain do the dirty work for him.
