Saudi Government Itself Threatens To Unleash Jihadists On London If Corruption Probe Isn't Halted


Saudi Arabia’s rulers threatened to make it easier for terrorists to attack London unless corruption investigations into their arms deals were halted, according to court documents revealed yesterday.

Previously secret files describe how investigators were told they faced “another 7/7″ and the loss of “British lives on British streets” if they pressed on with their inquiries and the Saudis carried out their threat to cut off intelligence.

It gets better: the threat was delivered by very high-ranking roaming Ambassador of Islamic Love Prince Bandar, himself a target of the investigation.
