Posted on 06/20/2012 11:44:42 AM PDT by LSUfan
Prince Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud, now the next in line to take over the kingdom of Saudi Arabia, was one of several defendants sued last year for his alleged support of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
Salman is identified as an individual patron of al-Qaeda and as the leader of the Saudi High Commission for Relief to Bosnia and Herzegovina (SHC).
A U.N. sponsored investigation further determined that Prince Salman bin Abdul Aziz al Saud, the head of the SHC, transferred in excess of $120 million from his personal accounts and SHC accounts under his control to the Third World Relief Agency (TWRA), between July of 1992 and July of 1995. According to the 9/11 Commission, the TWRA was an al Qaeda front and the primary pipeline for illegal arms shipments to al Qaeda fighters in the Balkans.
Prince Salman also serves as the chairman of the Popular Committees for Support of the Palestinian Jihadis, a Saudi government entity that supports terrorism by donating money to the families of Palestinian suicide bombers.

T Boone Pickens warned last year that the Saudis may be in for major trouble given the health of the royal family.
If order collapses, oil goes to $200 overnight.
I remember reading a article months ago that basically stated that if the guy (who just died) ever dies, we are in big trouble.
1. Allow Trans-Canada to build the Keystone pipeline.
2. Encourage drilling off the coasts, in Alaska, and offshore.
3. End "boutique blending" of gasoline.
4. End the war on coal.
Just a few suggestions now that AQ is about to take over the #1 country in oil production and the #3 country in terms of reserves.
Bonus question. Which countries are #1 and #2 in terms of energy reserves? Hint: they are not in the middle east and if you speak English you would probably be able to function in both of these countries.
The Lloyds lawsuit also accuses Salman of supporting anti-Israeli terrorists. Prince Salman also serves as the chairman of the Popular Committees for Support of the Palestinian Jihadis, a Saudi government entity that supports terrorism by donating money to the families of Palestinian suicide bombers.
