According to a Jerusalem Post article, Wikileaks released documents of a Saudi proposed plan to destroy Hizbullah/Hezbollah in Lebanon. The plan included the help of the US and NATO and called for an “Arab force” to create and maintain order in and around Beirut:
“The US and NATO would need to provide transport and logistical support, as well as ‘naval and air cover.’ Saud said that a Hizbullah victory in Beirut would mean the end of the Siniora government and the ‘Iranian takeover’ of Lebanon.” According to the WikiLeaks document, Saud argued that a Hizbullah victory against the government “combined with Iranian actions in Iraq and on the Palestinian front would be a disaster for the US and the entire region.” The Saudi foreign minister further argued that the current situation in Beirut was “entirely military” and so the response should be a military one as well. However, the Saudis continue to fund terrorism around the world. This from Hillary Clinton:
“While the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) takes seriously the threat of terrorism within Saudi Arabia, it has been an ongoing challenge to persuade Saudi officials to treat terrorist financing emanating from Saudi Arabia as a strategic priority,” reads a December 2009 memo from Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
And then there are those naughty Islamic Saudi princes:
United States diplomats have described a world of “sex, drugs and alcohol” in which the official religious individuals of Saudi Arabian loyalties engage in, according diplomatic cables recently published by Wikileaks on Wednesday. According to the leaked dispatches, officials from the Jeddah consulate detailed an underground Halloween party in which alcohol and prostitutes were readily available. The party, attended by over 150 Saudi men and women mostly in their twenties and thirties, was organized by a member of the Saudi royalty, a wealthy prince from the Al Thunayan family… Secret, underground parties protected by Saudi royalty and accessible only to the wealthy, were described as “thriving and throbbing” in the dispatch.
