WTH Is This? Saudi Crown Prince Receives Award for Countering Terrorism

The CIA gave the George Tenet counter-terrorism medal to a Saudi Arabian Crown Prince in early February.

This is not satire. We’re not kidding.

CIA Director Mike Pompeo gave the award to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Nayef bin Abdulaziz al-Saud, who is also Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior.

The medal was awarded in recognition of Prince bin Nayef’s “excellent intelligence performance, in the domain of counter-terrorism and his unbound contribution to realise world security and peace“.

The prince said “no attempt will succeed in driving a wedge between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the US”.

That’s a dead giveaway as to their goal.

The Crown Prince, once a big Hillary supporter, now likes Trump just like Wall Street likes Trump — as fair weather friends.

The Saudis have a history with the Clintons.

The brother of Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager John Podesta was on Saudi Arabia’s payroll, and Saudi Arabia gave $10 to $25 million to the Clinton Foundation. In return, Hillary Clinton made sure she gave them arms. She did that knowing they were supporting ISIS and other terrorist groups.

In a 2014 email, from Hillary Clinton to John Podesta, she wrote, “While this military/para-military operation is moving forward, we need to use our diplomatic and more traditional intelligence assets to bring pressure on the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, which are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIl and other radical Sunnit groups in the region.”

Some things never change. The Washington Times just announced Trump is lifting restrictions on arms to Saudi Arabia, restrictions placed by Barack Obama.

The Crown Prince was very grateful for the medal and thanked the leaders of Saudi Arabia headed by King Slaman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud. Also thanked were the Kingdom’s security forces.

Sure, they’re getting weapons.

As far as religion is concerned, he said “all religions are separate from the beliefs and actions of extremists groups”, adding that “religious, political and social groups who have used religion as a tool throughout history do not reflect the absolute truths about the religion which it is affiliated to, or attributes its actions to”.

That is from the country that allows only one religion and terrorizes women and gays over issues that should be their rights.

Al-Saud said Saudi Arabia is fighting terrorism and condemns all forms of terrorism.

“Saudi Arabia rejects and denounces strongly terrorism in all its forms and manifestations. We are determined to counter extremism and terrorism and were successful in foiling terrorist plots, through preemptive operations, and these included even plots targeting some friendly states,” he said while underlining the need for joint global efforts at the security, intellectual, financial, media and military levels, to stamp out the scourge of terror.

We love this next one.

“We, God willing, continue to confront terrorism and extremism everywhere, and with thanks to God we have managed to thwart many terrorist plots from occurring,” the Crown Prince said in all seriousness.

To be fair, they do control al Qaeda and other groups in their country though most of the Sunni jihadists have been supported by Saudi Arabia.

Of the 19 suspected 9/11 hijackers, 15 of them were from Saudi Arabia, according to the CIA. In 2015, one of the alleged 9/11 hijackers, Zacarias Moussaoui, claimed several members of the Saudi royal family had been listed as al Qaeda donors in the database he worked on under orders of Osama bin Laden, CNN reports.

Their mosques in the U.S. are very “conservative” and are often suspected of supporting extreme views.

The Crown Prince said: “We are surrounded by areas of conflict, and we were the first affected by terrorism from various sources, but we are equipped to combat terror in any place and under any circumstances.”

They are exporters of terrorism.
