Mohammad bin Salman / “MBS”

 

There’s been a coup in Saudi Arabia, and this asshole–a terrorist mass murderer–has seized power. Pepe Escobar, and a must-read piece in Asia Times:

A coup in the House of Saud?
BONUS:

A German intelligence memo outs the Saudis for sponsoring Al Qaeda.

The BND memo crucially detailed how the House of Saud, in Syria, had bankrolled the creation of the Army of Conquest – basically a revamp of Jabhat al-Nusra, aka al-Qaeda in Syria – as well as ideological sister outfit Ahrar al-Sham.

Confirmed in UK Independent

“The BND lists the areas in which Saudi Arabia is adopting a more aggressive and warlike policy. In Syria, in early 2015, it supported the creation of The Army of Conquest, primarily made up of the al-Qaeda affiliate the al-Nusra Front and the ideologically similar Ahrar al-Sham, which won a series of victories against the Syrian Army in Idlib province. In Yemen, it began an air war directed against the Houthi movement and the Yemeni army, which shows no sign of ending. Among those who gain are al-Qaeda in the Arabian peninsula, which the US has been fruitlessly trying to weaken for years by drone strikes. “

On further inspection, I think it’s Photoshopped.
