DAILYMAIL – November 23, 2017: Source in Saudi Arabia says American private security contractors are carrying out’interrogations’ on princes and billionaires arrested in crackdown. Detained members of Saudi elite have been hung by their feet and beaten by interrogates, source says. Among those hung upside down are Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, an investor worth at least $7 billion who is being held at Riyadh’s Ritz Carlton. Arrests were ordered three weeks ago by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. Source claims mercenaries are from ‘Blackwater’, a claim also made by Lebanese president. But its successor firm denies it has any operations in Saudi Arabia whatsoever and says its staff abide by U.S. law. Americans who commit torture abroad can be jailed for up to 20 years.
Round-up: Dozens of princes, senior officials and businessmen, including cabinet ministers and billionaires, have been detained in a function room of the Ritz Carlton. Now a source says they are being subjected to torture by American mercenaries.
Highest profile prisoner: Prince Alwaleed bin Talal was hung upside to ‘send a message’ after being lured to a meeting with the crown prince. He is worth at least $7 billion.
Saudi princes and billionaire businessmen arrested in a power grab earlier this month are being strung up by their feet and beaten by American private security contractors, a source in the country tells DailyMail.com.
The group of the country’s most powerful figures were arrested in a crackdown ordered by Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman three weeks ago as he ordered the detention of at least 11 fellow princes and hundreds of businessmen and government officials over claims of corruption.
Just last month, the Crown Prince vowed to restore ‘moderate, open Islam’ in the kingdom and relaxed a number of its ultra-conservative rules, including lifting a ban on women driving.
DailyMail.com can disclose that the arrests have been followed by ‘interrogations’ which a source said were being carried out by ‘American mercenaries’ brought in to work for the 32-year-old crown prince, who is now the kingdom’s most powerful figure. Link: Read Complete Article
Russian Senator Believes Saudi King’s Visit To Russia Means ‘US Dictate Over’
SPUTNIKNEWS – October 8, 2017: Russian Senator Alexey Pushkov argued on Sunday that the visit of Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud indicated the end of US dominance in international relations. (BATTLEFORWORLD: The United States will not rest idly by and will now create problems for Saudi Arabia as it moves closer to Russia. And the US just announced a $15 billion dollar arms package of THAAD missile systems to the Saudis. And the US needs this money to create more debt, but will the arms package delivery succeed?)
“Riyadh will cooperate with Moscow despite the hardline US approach to Russia. There is an important sign: The United States is still influential, but its dictate is over,” Pushkov said on Twitter.
On Wednesday, Saudi Arabia’s delegation led by King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud arrived in Moscow for a four-day state visit. It was the first ever visit of a reigning Saudi monarch to Russia.
During the visit of the Saudi King, a range of bilateral agreements in various areas have been signed including the preliminary agreements on acquisition of Russian S-400 missile defense system. Russian President Vladimir Putin called the visit a “landmark event.”

United States House Introduces Bill To End Support For Saudi’s ‘Horrifying’ War In Yemen
(BATTLEFORWORLD: The war in Yemen is basically the United States using Saudi Arabia as a proxy to fulfill US geopolitical goals. But now you have Russia and the Saudis moving ahead and creating a new friendship, one that the neocons in the US are not happy with, and so the US starts to warn the Saudis about moving closer to Russia.)
SPUTNIKNEWS – October 13, 2017: Citing human rights concerns, a bipartisan committee in the US House of Representatives has called for the US military to stop lending crucial support to the Saudi Arabian war in Yemen. The widely condemned Saudi intervention into the Yemeni Civil War has led to the deaths of tens of thousands of people, many of them civilians.
The primary way the US has supported the Saudi-led coalition’s incursion has been refueling missions flown by the US Air Force that allow their Saudi counterparts to continue a campaign of airstrikes in their southern neighbor. The new bill, House Congressional Resolution 81, would bar the US military from participating in any military action, including support for any side, in the Yemeni Civil War except operations against the powerful Islamic militant group al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP).
Resolution 81 “in no way restricts our military counter-terrorism efforts in Yemen,” Ro Khanna (D-Calif.), who introduced the bill, told Military.com. “All the bill basically does is say we should not be assisting Saudi Arabia in Yemen.” Link: Read Complete Article
