Where is Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan? 20, January 2010

Posted by thegulfblog.com in Saudi Arabia.

There’s a rumor floating around which I’d like to propagate some more insisting that Saudi Arabia’s former 22 year-long serving  Ambassador to America, Prince Bandar bin Sultan has disappeared. The London Review of Books blog has more on it but here’s a brief summary.

  • Unreliable Iranian media sources suggested that he had been arrested for plotting a coup of sorts
  • Others suggest that he’s ill or has been ordered to silence for meddling without approval in Syria
  • The hugely reliably (…) Saudi opposition sources maintain that Bandar is in Dhaban Prison in Jeddah. This is, according to the LRB blog, a high security facility where Bandar and 4 generals are being held in a separate wing
  • Bandar has missed many important engagements since his last public outing in December 2008 in including missing his official reswearing in as National Security Council head in September last year – a ceremony which traditionally entails pledging allegiance to the King
  • The key issue is, however, that he missed the homecoming of his father, Prince Sultan, from extended recuperation and medical care abroad in December 2009.

Update: here

Update of the update: he’s alive!

He’s a chicken shit gypsy. He’s hiding because he had a hand in the turmoil that is happening in syria now. He also knows that because he had a hand in the turmoil, that hand is going to get chopped off. That’s why that gypsy is hiding.
