Reports: Saudi Prince Bandar Using US to Topple Syria's Assad

According to reports in Mint Press News made by veteran Associated Press reporter Dale Gavlak, the chemical attack came from Syrian rebel arms by Prince Bandar, not the Assad regime.

Gavlak writes, "The U.S., Britain, and France as well as the Arab League have accused the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for carrying out the chemical weapons attack, which mainly targeted civilians. U.S. warships are stationed in the Mediterranean Sea to launch military strikes against Syria in punishment for carrying out a massive chemical weapons attack. The U.S. and others are not interested in examining any contrary evidence, with U.S Secretary of State John Kerry saying Monday that Assad's guilt was 'a judgment … already clear to the world.'"

Gavlak's report states that the U.S. is not interested in differing opinion, despite evidence that points to Saudi Arabian Prince Bandar.

The report continues,

"However, from numerous interviews with doctors, Ghouta residents, rebel fighters and their families, a different picture emerges. Many believe that certain rebels received chemical weapons via the Saudi intelligence chief, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, and were responsible for carrying out the dealing gas attack."

"They didn't tell us what these arms were or how to use them," complained a female fighter named 'K.' "We didn't know they were chemical weapons. We never imagined they were chemical weapons."

"When Saudi Prince Bandar gives such weapons to people, he must give them to those who know how to handle and use them," she warned.

She, like other Syrians, do not want to use their full names for fear of retribution.

Prince Bandar is said to have close ties to Washington, serving as Saudi Arabia's ambassador. According to a report in the UK's The Independent, Prince Bandar has re-emerged as a pivotal figure in the struggle by America and its allies to tilt the battlefield balance against the regime in Syria.

According to the Independent, it was Prince Bandar's intelligence agency that first alerted Western allies to the alleged use of sarin gas by the Syrian regime in February.

According to the report,

"It is a long-term Saudi goal that in the past several days has been subsumed by the more immediate crisis over the purported use of chemical weapons by Damascus … That message is being delivered to President Barack Obama by the current Saudi Ambassador in Washington, Adel al-Jubeir, who is a Bandar protégé."

This situation continues to become eerily similar to President George W. Bush's intel on weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

In fact, according to Washington Post journalist Bob Woodward, on January 11, 2002, Rumsfeld, Cheney and Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Richard Myers met in Cheney's office with Prince Bandar, the Saudi ambassador to the United States to discuss plans to attack Iraq.

The Washington Post reported that Bandar, who helped arrange Saudi cooperation with the U.S. military, feared Saudi interests would be damaged if Bush did not follow through on attacking Hussein, thus Bandar became another advocate for war.

"Months of applying pressure on the White House and Congress over Syria have slowly born fruit. The CIA is believed to have been working with Prince Bandar directly since last year in training rebels at base in Jordan close to the Syrian border," the Independent reported.

The Saudis are "indispensable partners on Syria" and have considerable influence on American thinking, a senior US official told The Wall Street Journal yesterday. He added: "No one wants to do anything alone."

And right now, Secretary of State John Kerry is trying to justify intervening in Syria on the basis of crimes against humanity.

But it makes you wonder: Whose crimes?

Is Saudi Arabia using an attack on Syria by the west as a way to advance its own agenda?

    Debbie Wasserman Schultz is an AIPAC lobbyist and soon to be Speaker of the House. That is a conflict of interest and there needs to be a congressional investigation done on Debbie Wasserman Schultzs.debbie can advocate for war on behalf of Israel whenever she wants. The sad thing is she is creating so much harm and backlash with her extremely destructive AIPAC lobby.

  • Dave Eboch

    Stop all this disinformation. The Saudi's are not behind this. The AIPAC lobby is behind all of this. They want the US to destroy Syria to rid Israel of an enemy. The AIPAC lobby is more powerful than prince Bandar. Our government is run by Israeli firsters like Debbie Waaserman Schultz. Who deceives the US and wants a war to help expand Israeli borders. She should not be allowed to stay as Speaker of the House. She is all for endless war so the young soldiers in the United States will be killed in wars for the next twenty years for her AIPAC lobby to prevail as the war mongers of the world.

    Kerry and Obama have absolutely no credibility - neither of them have any morals or ethics to stick by and the waiver constantly depending on who is in front of them that they think needs to be impressed by them. These countries and their regime leaders should be left to their own designs, their own devices. Obama was the one who smashed Bush on many occasions for going into Iraq and many other Democrats have done the same so why now, is it suddenly ok to become involved when there seems to be no one else on Obama's side?? We can't afford this since Obama has taken so much funding out of our military budgets.

    Kerry has the credibility and moral compass of a sand flea.

    Any military action that degrades, diminishes and destroys Islamic resources, politics and population is good. It doesn't matter that the rebels are extremists, as long as the Iran/ Syria/ Hezbollah connection is destroyed. Ultimately the idiots in Washington will realize the enemy of our enemy is still our enemy and eventually we will have to destroy most of the Middle East in order to exterminate the "Orthodox" (Extremist) Muslims.

      This a satanic inspiration inspired to the majority of commentarists here,because Islam is not extremism,nor muslims are,may be some persons or groups are so because fo the negative policy of USA after the presidents Eisenhower ,John Kennedy Jimy Carter, the Zionist loby won a great force and influence in the exterior policy of USA,and never the muslims or Arabs were enemies to Americans or other countries,
      Why the American citizans have to give from their paid taxes,as grants ,billons of Dollars to Israel,which is a strange corp or cancer planted in Palestine,and a Palestinian born in Palestine can't and not allowed to him to come back to palestine,
      in Palestine there were on 1948 about 1.200.000 arab palestinian Christians,and now less than 200.000 because of genocide done by the European Zionist Jews that are not descendents of the sons of Israel, towards all palestinians
      and as they can interfer in the economies of many important countries,they have a big influence upon the governors..
      Islam is the religion recommended and ordered by God to all his creation,and atrue submitted Jew or Christians means a muslim in Arabic language,so why this wrong unjust talk about Islam,and if some muslims are diverted,or christians or Jews,the religion of God is not responsable for that,but they are responsable,becuase their Lord,granted to them a mind to be used as should be

    Read recently that Prince Bandar had infuriated Putin with threats of disrupting the upcoming Olympics if he didn't cut his ties with Syria. More internet chatter to ponder

  • sunshine505

    Prince Bandar is a family friend of the Bush family and was in the White House just prior to 9/11. He was one of the ones that were whisked out of the country when all other planes were grounded. Too much of a coincidence that he is now involved in the chemical attack in Syria-to take us into another war and to align us WITH al-quaeda if we go to war in Syria. Check out the connections of Bandar with Bush family and what is going on now with setting us up in another war scenario. Things are not lining up for protecting America! Time to blow open the evil deeds of darkness! And save America!
