You'll remember Bandar bin Sultan. Saudi ambassador to the US for over twenty years. Investor in Bush family business ventures. Implicated in a huge kick-back scandal in an arms deal between Britain and Saudi Arabia.
Bandar was so tight with the Bush family they referred to him as Bandar Bush.
Bandar Bush now has one of the most powerful and sensitive positions in the entire Middle East. His fingers will be in every pie where the Kingdom needs to overthrow a government (that would be any country with a Shia government) or conversely, stamp out dissent to keep a Sunni government in power (e.g. Bahrain).
An interesting development. Congratulations on your new job, Mr. bin Sultan!
