Saudi princes dying at astonishing rate
Nando Times | Submitted by: Walker LaRocke
Agence France-Presse just reported that Saudi Prince Fahd bin Turki bin Saud al Kabir, age 25, has been found dead earlier today in his country's searing desert, adding that the prince apparently died of thirst. Prince Nayef Bin Sultan Bin Fawwaz Al-Shaalan, was indicted in a major cocaine smuggling sting two weeks ago. He allegedly smuggled 4,400 pounds cocaine from Venezuela to France on his private jet in 1999. That is a lot of cocaine, my friends. Days after his indictment, Ahmed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, the owner of Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner War Emblem died of a heart attack, at age 43. Two days later, Prince Sultan bin Faisal bin Turki bin Abdullah, a 41-year-old businessman, was killed near Riyadh in a suspicious car accident. It is dangerous being a young Saudi prince these days, eh? I believe the deaths were orchestrated by the drug kingpins as retaliation for the indictment of Al-Shaalan, who was probably given up to the U.S. authorities by the Saudi goverment as repayment for Saudi Arabia’s involvement in the September 11th attacks. Cazart!
