    Text of a Letter from the President to the Speaker of the House of Representatives and the President pro tempore of the Senate NATIONAL SECURITY & DEFENSE Issued on: November 19, 2019 Dear Madam Speaker: (Dear Mr. President:) As I most recently reported on July 22, 2019, United States Armed Forces have been deployed to the Middle East to protect United States interests and enhance force protection in the region against hostile action by Iran and its proxy forces. Iran has continued to threaten the security of the region, including by attacking oil and natural gas facilities in the Kingdom...

    The oil giant released a valuation target ranging from $1.6 trillion to $1.7 trillion. The figures fall short of the $2 trillion target Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has been fixed on for more than two years. The difference in value illustrates the operational, geopolitical and governance risks that investors face betting on the offering, writes Ben Dummett. The IPO still has potential to be the world's biggest by surpassing the $25 billion Alibaba raised in 2014. But the stock listing is beginning to reveal a set of dueling interests for Saudi Arabia. Saudi leadership wants the stock offering...

    Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard on Tuesday pushed the theory that the US government is actively covering up Saudi Arabia’s role in 9/11. The Hawaii congresswoman sent a campaign email with the subject line “We deserve all the information on 9/11” — which hinted at a conspiracy to prevent the public from fully knowing the role Riyadh played in the deadliest terrorist attack on American soil, according to The Huffington Post. “The American people still don’t have access to the truth about Saudi Arabia and who helped Al Qaeda carry out these deadly attacks,” the email said. “It is absolutely...

    The Justice Department has charged two former Twitter employees with spying for Saudi Arabia, The Washington Post reports. U.S. citizen Ahmad Abouammo on Tuesday was arrested for allegedly spying on the accounts of three users on behalf of the kingdom. Ali Alzabarah, a Saudi citizen, was charged on Wednesday with accessing the personal information of more than 6,000 Twitter accounts in 2015 on behalf of Riyadh. One of the accounts Alzabarah allegedly hacked belonged to Omar Abdulaziz, a known critic of Saudi Arabia, who later became friends with Jamal Khashoggi, The Washington Post columnist that was killed by the Saudi...

    Jared Kushner gave permission to Saudi ruler Mohammad bin Salman to arrest Jamal Khashoggi before he was killed and dismembered, a whistleblower claims. However, Turkish intelligence intercepted the call and President Recep Erdogan then used the information to force President Trump to remove his troops from northern Syria, according to the Spectator. The report claims that investigators on the Democratic-led House Intelligence Committee are aware of these allegations and are planning to dig further into them while pursuing the impeachment inquiry over Trump’s dealings with Ukraine.

    Saudis pressing ahead with fence on Iraq border: minister Agence France-Presse - 15 November, 2006 www.gulfinthemedia.com/index.php?id=261165&news_type=Top〈=en&PHPSESSID=4edd8cb6af8d02c7b5d3cf52ca89de5f Saudi Arabia will press ahead with plans to build a massive security fence along its borders with Iraq to prevent infiltration of "terrorists," the interior minister said in an interview published Tuesday. Construction of the double-track barbed fence, which will be fitted with remote sensors and thermal cameras, will begin next year, Prince Nayef bin Abdul Aziz told Al Anbaa Kuwaiti newspaper.

    MEMRI ^ | October 12, 2006 | Various opinions
    As part of its battle against terrorism, Saudi Arabia has recently announced a plan to build an 814-kilometer security fence along its border with Iraq. The project, which will take several years to compete, will also include the construction of military bases and checkpoints along the border. At present, the Saudi border-patrol maintains some 40 bases along the Iraqi border in attempt to stop the infiltration of drug and arms smugglers, wanted terrorists, and illegal immigrants from Iraq into Saudi Arabia. [1] It should be noted that in 2004, Saudi Arabia began to construct a separation barrier along its border...

    The Sunday Telegraph (U.K.) ^ | 10/01/06 | Harry de Quetteville
    Security in Iraq has collapsed so dramatically that Saudi Arabia has ordered the construction of a 550-mile high-tech fence to seal off its troubled northern neighbour. The huge project to build the barrier, which will be equipped with ultraviolet night-vision cameras, buried sensor cables and thousands of miles of barbed wire, will snake across the vast and remote desert frontier between the countries. The fence will be built despite the hundreds of millions of pounds that the Saudi kingdom has spent in the past two years to beef up patrols on its border with Iraq, with officials saying the crisis...

    JEDDAH, SAUDI ARABIA - Apparently concerned that fighting in Iraq could spill over into this oil-rich kingdom, Saudi Arabia is considering a major fortification of its 500-mile border with Iraq. "The government is thinking of building an electrified fence along the whole border with Iraq in case things go really badly in Iraq, and it starts falling apart," says a security adviser to the Saudi government, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the government has not made any official announcement of such plans.It has, however, admitted that it is looking at strengthening its border defenses."We are currently conducting a...

    ... There will never be peace between the Arabs and Israel. Why not? Because, as noted, the Arabs don't want peace with Israel; they don't want Israel, and will look for any excuse to avoid any kind of peace agreement. As Netanyahu once observed regarding the prospects for peace in the area: "If the Arabs put down their weapons today there would be no more violence; if the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more Israel." Or, as Golda Meir before him observed: "Peace will come when Arabs will love their children more than they hate...

    The mysterious flight between the two nations had many asking "Whodunnit?" A privately owned, unidentified Challenger 604 jet departed from Ben-Gurion International Airport, landing first in the Jordanian capital of Amman and then in the Saudi Arabian capital of Riyadh on Tuesday evening, causing many to question which Israeli decided to pay the Saudis a visit. The plane in question departed from Israel and flew to an airport in Amman, where it remained on the ground for about two minutes before taking off again and landing in the Saudi capital. After a little less than an hour, the plane, privately...

    Saudi authorities on Saturday released billionaire Prince al-Waleed bin Talal, people familiar with the matter said, more than two months after he was detained in a widespread crackdown on corruption in the kingdom. Prince al-Waleed is already at his house in Riyadh and is expected to resume his business activities as normal, two people said. The 62-year-old prince was one of dozens of royals, senior government officials and businesspeople rounded up in early November, a wave of arrests the Saudi government billed as the first volley in Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s campaign against graft but which was also seen...
