Default Re: Saudi Chief of Intelligence Assassinated by Syrians

I would be very wary of a DEBKAfile report until there is other confirmation. They have a very long history of posting rumors as fact

But, this would be a big, big deal if true. This was the Bandar who was incredibly close to the Bush family and tons of US officials. He was very much in favor of taking out Saddam. It could be that the Bath party in Syria might feel it's losing the war and that it should take some revenge while it can.

Other news reports say he has been in recent weeks at "heart of the US-Saudi axis to the Syrian Rebels."
