Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, November 25, 2017

Saudi princes and billionaire businessmen arrested in a power grab earlier this month are being strung up by their feet and beaten by American private security contractors, a source in the country tells DailyMail.com. The group of the country's most powerful figures were arrested in a crackdown ordered by Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman three weeks ago as he ordered the detention of at least 11 fellow princes and hundreds of businessmen and government officials over claims of corruption.

Just last month, the Crown Prince vowed to restore "moderate, open Islam" in the kingdom and relaxed a number of its ultra-conservative rules, including lifting a ban on women driving.

DailyMail.com can disclose that the arrests have been followed by "interrogations" which a source said were being carried out by American mercenaries brought in to work for the 32-year-old crown prince, who is now the kingdom's most powerful figure.

'They are beating them, torturing them, slapping them, insulting them. They want to break them down,' the source told DailyMail.com.

Blackwater has been named by DailyMail.com's source as the firm involved, and the claim of its presence in Saudi Arabia has also been made on Arabic social media, and by Lebanon's president.

Jared gave the young Saudi Prince Trump's blessing to arrest his political enemies... Trump, however, still can't understand why he can't do the same thing here.

As this assertion has made the ReTort frontpage, I will assume that this bit of news has made the jump from speculation to fact..
On first read, I took the namedrop of a dead company to be a dead giveaway of a red herring.

"I took the namedrop of a dead company to be a dead giveaway of a red herring."

Blackwater is not "dead". They have only changed their name.


And looks like it's time to change it again. Try as they might they will always be known as Blackwater no matter how they try to distance themselves and run from their previous crimes.

Recent crimes include things such as possessing automatic weapons in the United States without registration, lying to federal firearms regulators about weapons provided to the king of Jordan, passing secret plans for armored personnel carriers to Sweden and Denmark without U.S. government approval and illegally shipping body armor overseas
