The commission was thoroughly sold out to the hariri clan, the American government and the Saudi patrons. The commission tried to get me to testify to some specific knowledge of Hizbullah complicity. it would have been a lie and I refused. pl


Pat, this is why Syria will prevail.


Middle East politicians tweeting? We can haz new world order.

Abu Sinan

He is half Saudi, so it makes sense. The man, on his own, is as dumb as a box of rocks. It just goes to show you how money and well paid advisors can make a man.

Sa'ad's mother was supposedly Iraqi. His father Rafik was rumored to be the love child of the late King Saud whose family had a summer villa in the Lebanese town of Sidon where Rafik's mother was employed as a domestic. Saud was a teenager at the appropriate time. That would make Sa'ad one quarter Saudi would it not? pl


"He is a Wahhabi"

Aren't you pushing it a bit?


If he really is a Wahhabi he's pretty good at hiding it.

(Fun bit: the only picture where his wife is wearing anything on her head is when they're meeting the pope!)


I can't help thinking the events over the last couple of weeks including the comments by Saad al-Hariri is a attempt by SA to consolidate power and leadership within the Sunni world. I'm not sure how deep SA backing of the present government in Egypt and backing of the Sunni rebels in Syria are but it sure looks like making lemonade out of lemons. Could this be the opening moves of a showdown with Iran?



not a bit. Bandar bin Sultan is a Wahhabi also as well as a sinner according to their creed. pl



The Saudis are like the mythical bulldozer mounted Soviets attacking and backing away from a mountain of resistance in a continuing search for power. Money in Egypt for the anti-MB effort and money in Syria to oppose non-Sunni power are the same thing. pl

I never trust a man with a beard like that; nor a man in a bow-tie.
