Prince Turki, who reportedly met bin Laden in hospital.


The Saudi ambassador to the US is to be Prince Turki al-Faisal, the former head of Saudi Arabian intelligence, and the current ambassador to Britain.


Reportedly, Prince Turki al Faisal has had close links to the CIA, Bin Laden and Bank BCCI.

In Drugs, Oil and War, Peter Dale Scott wrote:

"BCCI's inside connection to the CIA appears to have been strengthened in 1976, when under CIA Director George Bush 'the CIA strengthened its relationships with so-called friendly Arab intelligence agencies. One of the most important of these was Saudi Arabia's intelligence service, the Istakhbarat, run by Kamal Adham, Prince Turki al-Faisal, Abdul-Raouf Khalil, all of whom were BCCI insiders."

Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI) financed numerous militant organizations and laundered money generated by illicit drug trafficking and other illegal activities, including arms trafficking. Bin Laden and many other 'militants' had accounts there. [Detroit News, 9/30/01]

Reportedly, the Bin Ladens had friends similar to those of Prince Turki?

Quoting a French intelligence report posted by PBS Frontline, The New Yorker reports, “During the nineteen-eighties, when the Reagan administration secretly arranged for an estimated $34 million to be funneled through Saudi Arabia to the Contras in Nicaragua, Osama's eldest brother, Salem bin Laden aided in this cause.” [New Yorker, 11/5/01; PBS Frontline, 2001 (B)]

According to Larry Chin, Online Journal Associate Editor:

"Prince Turki has been intimately involved with the CIA, Pakistan's ISI (a virtual branch of the CIA), and the creation and guiding of Islamic 'terrorism', and all aspects of the geostrategy leading up to, and out of, September 11, and pipeline politics."

Bin Laden is reported to have arrived at the American Hospital in Dubai on July 4, 2001.

Bin Laden, with a $5 million bounty on his head, reportedly received lifesaving treatment for kidney failure from American specialist Dr. Terry Callaway.

He was possibly accompanied by Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri.

Callaway reportedly treated bin Laden in 1996 and 1998, also in Dubai. Callaway later refused to answer any questions on this matter.

The Guardian claimed that the leak came from from French intelligence, “which is keen to reveal the ambiguous role of the CIA, and to restrain Washington from extending the war to Iraq and elsewhere.”

According to Larry Chin:

"Prince Turki was Osama bin Laden's friend and liaison for more than two decades.

"The rise of the Taliban in Afghanistan was directed by Saudi Arabia, Pakistan's ISI, the CIA and oil interests (Unocal), and its fall (and 9/11) was directed by the same, and only after the Taliban regime refused to cooperate with larger interests."

"...Prince Turki al-Faisal 'knows where the bodies are hidden' (literally and figuratively). His ascension to an even more influential post is symptomatic of the global hardening of criminal power taking place across the New World Order..."
