NPR confirms the intelligence of one of my Blogs dated March 2Â by confirming that wealthy Saudis are recruiting and funding Saudi fighters to join Jabhat al-Nusra and Ahrar al-Sham extremists fighting the the extremists of Hezbollah, IRGC, and the Shabeeha of Assad.
Two matters in their story are either erroneous or were completely missed.
The missed item deals with the bounty wealthy Saudis are paying for the heads of Alawites and Shia dying in Syria while fighting to protect the regime.
The second item deals with those so-called experts on Saudi Arabia interviewed for the NPR story who try to deflect from the role of the Saudi Government by making claims that would have us believe three al-Saud princes did not fund and did not support Bin Laden to carry out his attack on 9/11.
Very few people understand the tight ropes theÂ WahhabiÂ religious establishment and the al-Saud family dance together on. It is one of secrecy and parallel thinking that is spun constantly to distance one from the other. Yet, both remain powerful and both remain in control of Saudi Arabia, its government, and its society.
