After the terrorist strike last month against the Saudi oil facility in Yanbu, Saudi Arabia announced publicly (to the outside world) that Al Qaeda was to blame and Al Qaeda claimed responsibility. But inside the kingdom the Saudi's words were very different.
Crown Prince Abdullah - "Zionism is behind it. It has become clear now. It has become clear to us. I don’t say, I mean... It is not 100 percent, but 95 percent that the Zionist hands are behind what happened."
Prince Nayef, the Saudi Interior Minister - "Al-Qaida is backed by Israel and Zionism."William Wechsler, former National Security Council member and co-author of the Council on Foreign Relations report;
"They have yet to arrest or incarcerate anybody publicly. And if you don’t take those actions then you can’t have deterrence."The Saudis claim that they have arrested and prosecuted 5 men for funding terrorism - they just haven't named them.
The names of the five are believed to be:
