Jive Turki

Prince Bandar has been ambassador from Saudi Arabia to the U.S. for so many years, that it's hard to believe he's leaving. Robert Spencer profiles his replacement, Prince Turki al-Faisal, in Jihad Watch, where he notes that Prince Turki headed Saudi Arabia's intelligence services and was an early mentor of Osama Bin Laden. According to reports, Turki participated in the multimillion dollar payoff to Al-Qaeda so that Al-Qaeda would not attack the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia itself.
