Prince Bandar oversaw the military efforts of jihadists going into Syria.

Prince Bandar bin Sultan Al Saud is a name I've written about many times since I started blogging in the fall of 2004. Especially during my stay @BooMan - archive.

As I mentioned in the article, Prince Bandar was the black ops commander for the jihadists traveling across the globe. From the earliest part in the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan in coordination with the CIA and Pakistan's ISI. The Royal family and Prince Bandar must have been friendly with Osama Bin Laden, the wealthy Saudi family originally from Yemen.
