Petrodollar Bribery, Smear Campaigns: The Wikileaks Saudi Cables

Petro-dollar bribery, smear campaigns, purchasing journalists and media outlets – it’s all part and parcel of daily Saudi “diplomacy.”

Investigative journalist Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya trawls through the Wikileaks cables and the staggering (but entirely unsurprising) revelations within.

They confirm what we already know: Saudis are destabilizing Iraq, highly active in Syria, and bribing their way into legitimacy worldwide.

Saudi Arabia pours so much money into Western journalism that there must be a reluctance to disrupt this cash flow by printing stories critical of the Gulf monarchy.

Nazemroaya also discusses Saudi horse trading with countries such as Australia and Russia.

But who released the cables?

Was the Yemen Cyber Army capable or interested in doing so? Why so few releases about Syria?
