Posted on 04/15/2014 8:01:09 PM PDT by PieterCasparzen
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 Sultans 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.
But don't cry for the Prince - his net worth is estimated to be well in the billions.

Hey, don’t they need a new boss over at the NSA?
They individually wear enough cloth to get sacked many times over....
Those Responsible for Sacking the People Who Have Just Been Sacked, Have Been Sacked.
He’ll be back: Those responsible for sacking Prince Bandar have been sacked.
And gone again: Those responsible for sacking the people who have just been sacked have been sacked.
The Saudi’s wanted Syria in the hands of people that would allow the pipeline to Europe to be built.
When Bandar asked Putin to abandon Assad, for a HUGE arms deal, and billions in return, Putin actually LAUGHED in his face, and said simply, NYET.
We all know how Obama reacted. He said “YESSIR!”, and almost started WW3.
Much of what is going on in Ukraine today stems from this.
swell so now anonymous writers ( because Tyler Durden ain’t real) on an aggregator site that specializes in conspiracy stories and unverified reports is considered news
And he fired everybody just as hard as he could go He fired old Cedric and he fired Sammy Pruitt And he fired some people that he didn’t even know .
Lots of Palace intrigue going on here.
Bandar has been off the job and out of the country for surgery for two months, returning just last week.
In the interim, Mohammed bin Nayef, took over.
Now, one week after Bandar returns, he gets sacked?
Nayef is the regime’s enforcer. Much more going on here than meets the eye, I think.
I should add that Nayef is considered to be a possible for the throne, and he has been consolidating power against rivals in the last couple of years.
“swell so now anonymous writers ( because Tyler Durden aint real) on an aggregator site that specializes in conspiracy stories and unverified reports is considered news”
They beat Yahoo/AP and BBC to it by about 30 minutes, so yes, they are considered news.
Well he still has his suite at Cowboys Stadium to hang with his pal, Jerruh.
Top wahabbi islamist to be replaced with another. News at 2100 hours.
Bush Derangement Syndrome?
I swear, that evil George W. Bush is responsible for bank failures, voter fraud, weather control, inflation, deflation, regulation, deregulation, deforestation, nail fungus, burnt toast, missing socks in the dryer, allergic reactions to shellfish, and forces teenage girls to listen to emo music.
Here’s the link from zh story to the Saudi press agency:
right from the horsey’s mouth.
See ? zh wasn’t making it up.
No, that’s his nickname, it has been for years.
The Bushes and he both know about it and laugh about it, from what I hear.
Man, I didn’t think this story was that big a deal, just an FYI to keep up with what’s goin’ on.
I wonder how many American politicians he has bought?
Tune in for the next exciting installment.
I don’t think any; they work for American financial elites, and he does too.
Thanks gleeaikin. Thanks for the info, tcrlaf.
He could work for Putin.
there is a strategy/intrigue board game here I’m thinking...
I thought it was Qatar (among many others) that wants
to build a pipeline through Syria.
Saudi has gas, but it’s underdeveloped, and S.A. is not likely to significantly exceed internal demand for a long time. They (SA) are more interested in developing their own petrochemical industries (plastics, etc.) than in exporting gas.
In any event, the whole idea is to have an alternative or alternatives to gas supplies to Europe, avoiding purchase from Russia and transit through Ukraine, making whomever is in power in Kiev relatively unimportant. This (depending on the proposal) would make the suppliers (Iran, Qatar, Azerbaijan, etc.) richer too, of course.
This is not to say Saudi doesn’t have other reasons to depose Assad (and also oppose Qatar, among other things. The ME is like a 20 ring circus, sometimes...)
No worries...Bandar will just go back to his old role of U.S. National Security Advisor.
Could just have easily cited one of the European or Mideast sources that had it even before
