Another Saudi Prince Arrested, This Time for Smuggling 2 Tons of Drugs for ISIS Fighters

Beirut, Lebanon — Last week, the Free Thought Project reported on the case of Prince Majed bin Abdullah bin Abdulaziz, 29. Abdulaziz was arrested and then let off by prosecutors in Los Angeles who claimed they didn’t have enough evidence to charge him with kidnapping and sexual assault.

These charges were dropped in spite of the fact that multiple witnesses watched a woman covered in blood scale the 8-foot walls of the Prince’s Beverly Hills mansion, screaming for help. Two other women also claimed to be held captive in his mansion and raped.

Abdulaziz is the son of King Abdullah the former ruler of Saudi Arabia, America’s unscrupulous ally in the Middle East, so this special treatment comes as no surprise. However, what authorities are saying his cousin, Abd al-Muhsen bin Walid bin Abd al-Aziz Al Saud, has done is shocking.

On Monday morning, Abd al-Aziz Al Saud was about to conduct a flight from Beirut’s Rafik Hariri International Airport on his private jet when he was intercepted by security forces.

According to AhluBayt News Agency, 

Abd al-Muhsen bin Walid bin Abd al-Aziz Al Saud was detained at an airport in the Lebanese capital, Beirut, while in possession of 24 bags and eight suitcases full of narcotics.

They were packed in his luggage, weighing about two tons, which aroused suspicions among the security forces and led to their discovery.

Inside the luggage, Lebanese officials found packages containing two tons of captagon pills. For those unfamiliar with captagon, it is an amphetamine-based drug ISIS fighters have been using to stay alert in battle.

Lebanese psychiatrist, Ramzi Haddad, told the Guardian that Captagon has ‘the typical effects of a stimulant’ and produces ‘a kind of euphoria – you’re talkative, you don’t sleep, you don’t eat, you’re energetic.’

According to the BBC:

The drug has helped fuel the conflict in Syria, generating millions of dollars in revenue for producers inside the country as well as being used by combatants to help them keep fighting.

NNA reported that 40 bags of Captagon pills were found by inspectors from the Gendarmerie in cases due to be put on board a jet bound for Hael, in northern Saudi Arabia.

The US government’s loyalty to Saudi Arabi is unquestioning despite their horrific and violent track record of human rights violations and beheadings.

As the Free Thought Project’s Jay Syrmopoulos pointed out last week, 

It should come as no surprise that there is virtually no accountability for a member of the House of Saud, as they break U.S. law with impunity. They have figured out the formula that makes “American justice” work, having large amounts of wealth and being politically connected to powerful individuals.

Similarly to how the U.S. gave a tacit nod of approval to the ascension of the Saudis to the head of the UN Human Rights Council, despite having beheaded more people in the past 12 months than ISIS, Al-Saud was given the Saudi royal treatment by U.S. authorities.

Now we can add international drug smuggling to their long list of illegal behavior.

After Russia reportedly destroyed a large portion of IS forces in Syria earlier this month, the US immediately dropped in 50 tons of weapons. 

Now, just days after the weapons resupply, the United State’s strongest ally in the region is caught with two tons of amphetamine ” ISIS fighting pills.”

It seems that stoking international war by creating and supporting terrorist groups is becoming harder to hide from the world who’s becoming weary of fighting.


Correction: It was originally reported that Prince Majed bin Abdullah bin Abdulaziz was the one who was caught trafficking the drugs. However, it was actually his cousin, Prince Abd al-Muhsen bin Walid bin Abd al-Aziz Al Saud.

    • It is haraam (unlawful) total opposite of Halal but hey no one said The Sauds are the best of examples. They like to pick and choose what to follow and they are not the examples of righteous Muslims. If we want spoiled rich arabs they are great at that.

    • Hezbollah and SAA have on tape big boxes of pills seized that IS take befor battle so they just run in and dont give a shit… Funny really, stupid kebabs hate tobacco, hashish and alcohol and burn them yet allow ampetamines

  • Cia op

  • Absolute power corrupts absolutely

  • TSA what an awesome company. Obvious government failure is obvious. Hang a politican.

  • If by awesome……you mean AWESOME……..

  • That drug is widely taken in the ME, it could be his own personal stash, more likely than a prince risking his own neck for ISIS, drug mule?, probably a big party coming up.

    • Lol I was thinking the same. The day those 100+ Saud offsprings care about anything other than self is a shocker. Why fight when you can spend

    • Join Yemen and Iran for total war against saudi would be best 🙂

    • A Muslim cannot kill another Muslim grave sin best not be involved and be as the prophet said when the time comes where a Muslim does not know why he was killed and by another Muslim it’s best to behave like the better brother of the two sons of Adam. (Habil -Abel and Qabil- Cain)

  • Why smuggle this stuff, can be made anywhere?

  • Saudi is like number one ally of ISIS, so why the fuck do we ally ourselfs with kebabs? Oil prehaps

  • Tell me again how Barack doesn’t work for the Saudis.

  • saudi did the 911 with bush help thay own every thing

  • bunch of goat f!!kers!!

  • no wonder they dont drink it would be a waste off time with all that speed

  • Probably not the worst thing they traffic in

    This shows the complicity of the United States government agencies in drug cover ups. Not only duo they stop honest people reporting the truth, they actively help their friend when they are caught moving huge amounts of drugs throughout the world.
