Dissident account of Riyadh bombings
- ================= Begin forwarded message =================
I already posted this on the Arab Nationalist group
list, but for your other readers, here's my
translation of the account transmitted by the Saudi
dissident website on the bombings in Riyadh. They
contradict the official version according to which the
bombing killed mostly Arab civilians.
Our trusted sources have contacted us with the true
details of the operation. They are as follows:
1. A number of mujahideen (about fifteen of them)
attacked from three directions. One group came on foot
from the mountains, two others came in cars to the
main gate. The cars belonged originally to the
Special Security Forces.
2. Most of the mujahideen got out of their cars and
clashed with the guards in two armored vehicles and a
number of soldiers (Pertinent question: What kind of
compound is it that is guarded by armored vehicles?
Isn't this more like a military camp or a spy center?)
3. The guards completely wiped out in a few seconds.
At least nine of them were killed. The two armored
vehicles were apparently crippled, but this is not
certain. The heavy reinforced gate locked
4. The heavy, massive reinforced gate was blown open.
This was the first explosion, and it might have been
the most powerful because the gate was very massive
and made of steel and apparently was backed by layers
of concrete and earthen reinforcement. (Another
pertinent question: What kind of compound is this that
has this kind of gate? Isn't this more like a
military camp or a spy center?)
5. Just two cars, each with one martyrdom attacker
aboard, driving, drove in to their targets which had
been selected and studied previously. Both exploded
immediately upon reaching their end points. These were
the two other explosions.
6. The mujahideen pulled out immediately, safely and
completely unhurt, except for the two martyrs.
Searches that went on for many long hours and in which
helicopters were used produced nothing.
7. The number of confirmed deaths is 55 dead, other
than the guards and the two martyrs, as was observed
on Sunday night. More have probably died by now.
Most of those killed were Americans. Some were
French. There was at least one German. The dead were
also of other nationalities, some of them Arab, and in
addition there were security men.
Our sources also assure us that the compound was
entirely rented, starting at the gate, by the American
Federal Bureau of Investigation, the FBI, and possibly
there were also some agents of the Central
Intelligence Agency CIA inside as well. Those Arabs
and nominal Muslims were nothing but riffraff lackeys
of those agencies � people taking part in
investigations; people carrying out the torture that
the Americans do not deign to do, or avoid doing out
of fear of legal restraints under American law; those
taking part in translation and support work. It is
noteworthy that there are now in Saudi Arabia about
four thousand members of the various American
intelligence agencies. These people belong to various
nationalities, according to information coming from
sources in the Saudi regime.
