CIA and Saudi Arabia's Iran-(Contra) ISIS Drug Trafficking Ring EXPOSED

On 27 October 2015 a member of the Saudi royal family, caught importing the drug Captagon and its components, and the revenues go directly into weapons and supplies for ISIS. Iran-Contra all over again. And the CIA is knee deep in this BS.

Prince Abdel Mohsen Bin Walid Bin Abdulaziz, was using his diplomatic immunity to smuggle drugs on board a private jet. Because the Saudis are trying to covertly raise money for black operations using the CIA's drugs for guns tactics.

The judicial source told AFP that Lebanese authorities “charged 10 people, including five arrested individuals — a Saudi prince and four Saudi nationals… with smuggling and selling the drug Captagon.”

The drugs were packed in 40 suitcases and the plane was to head to the Saudi capital, Riyadh. He would use some or all of the profit to fund terrorism. The confiscated drugs are of the type mainly used by militants in Syria.

"We're just vacationing like any other vacationers," said Saudi Prince al Walid, 47, from on board his 281-foot yacht, "The Kingdom," in Cannes this past August. Formerly owned by Donald Trump, the yacht comes complete with its own disco studio and helicopter. "I am with my daughter and my son here. They're jet skiing right now. You know, it's like any other family."

On April 10, Mexican police, acting on a tip from INTERPOL, seized a DC-9 aircraft carrying 5.5 tons of cocaine with an estimated street value of $100 million.
  • The US-registered plane was en route from Caracas (Venezuela) which, according to French intelligence, is a known hub for cocaine shipments from Colombia to Saudi Arabia.
The DC-9 (registration number N900SA) made an emergency landing at Ciudad del Carmen in Campeche state. A Falcon aircraft that arrived at Ciudad del Carmen from Toluca airport in Mexico state in advance of the arrival of the DC-9 was also seized. The cocaine was contained in 128 suitcases. The Mexican police later claimed the unidentified DC-9's pilot managed to escape … however, the police did arrest the co-pilot.

The DC-9 was painted in the familiar blue and white colors of the US Transportation Security Administration with am official-looking seal with an American eagle bearing the inscription: “Sky Way Aircraft — Protection of America’s Skies.”


Fenethylline (BAN, USAN), also spelled phenethylline and fenetylline (INN), and also known as amphetaminoethyltheophylline and amfetyline, is a chemical linkage of amphetamine and theophylline which behaves as a prodrug to both of the aforementioned drugs. It is marketed for use as a psychostimulant under the brand names Captagon, Biocapton, and Fitton.


Fenethylline was first synthesized by the German Degussa AG in 1961 and used for around 25 years as a milder alternative to amphetamine and related compounds. Although there are no FDA-approved indications for fenethylline, it was used in the treatment of "hyperkinetic children" (what would now be referred to as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and, less commonly, for narcolepsy and depression. One of the main advantages of fenethylline was that it does not increase blood pressure to the same extent as amphetamine and so could be used in patients with cardiovascular conditions.

Fenethylline was considered to have fewer side effects and less potential for abuse than amphetamine. Nevertheless, fenethylline was listed in 1981 as a schedule I controlled substance in the US, and it became illegal in most countries in 1986 after being listed by the World Health Organization for international scheduling under the Convention on Psychotropic Substances, even though the actual incidence of fenethylline abuse was quite low.


Fenethylline is metabolized by the body to form two drugs, amphetamine (24.5% of oral dose) and theophylline (13.7% of oral dose), both of which are active stimulants. The physiological effects of fenethylline therefore result from a combination of these two compounds.


Abuse of fenethylline of the brand name Captagon is most common in Arab countries and counterfeit versions of the drug continue to be available despite its illegality.

Many of these counterfeit "Captagon" tablets actually contain other amphetamine derivatives that are easier to produce, but are pressed and stamped to look like Captagon pills. Some counterfeit Captagon pills analysed do contain fenethylline however, indicating that illicit production of this drug continues to take place.

Fenethylline is a popular drug in Western Asia, and is allegedly used by militant groups in Syria. It is manufactured locally in a cheap and simple process and it sells for between $5 and $20. According to some leaks, militant groups also export the drug in exchange for weapons and cash. According to Abdelelah Mohammed Al-Sharif, secretary general of the National Committee for Narcotics Control and assistant director of Anti-Drug and Preventative Affairs, 40% of the drug users who fall in the 12–22 age group in Saudi Arabia are addicted to fenethylline.


Captagon won't turn anyone into the Hulk or even give them superhuman abilities. ISIS aren't alone among military forces in the use of performance-enhancing drugs — it's something the US military does, too.

You should be skeptical of any media reports that describe a drug as giving someone superhuman abilities. This trope has been used to demonize drugs and their users throughout history, particularly in racist ways. But no drug that we know of is capable of turning someone into Superman or Luke Cage.

Its name has been applied to counterfeit tablets that often contain amphetamine and caffeine or, less frequently, methamphetamine and ephedrine.

These tablets, like other amphetamine-based drugs, provide a boost of energy, enhance someone's focus, let someone stay awake for longer periods of time, and produce a feeling of euphoria. But they won't cause someone to gain superhuman alertness, bravery, strength, or pain resistance.

Indeed, former fighters in Syria have told media outlets that the drug helped them fight. "So the brigade leader came and told us, 'This pill gives you energy. Try it,'" one ex-fighter told BBC. "So we took it the first time. You feel physically fit. And if there were 10 people in front of you, you could catch them and kill them. You're awake all the time. You don't have any problems. You don't even think about sleeping. You don't think to leave the checkpoint. It gives you great courage and power. If the leader told you to go break into a military barracks, I will break in with a brave heart and without any feeling of fear at all — you're not even tired."

Captagon is not going to explain any outrageous brutality on the part of ISIS. Implying the brutality of ISIS is somehow a product of amphetamine abuse is unfounded and reductionist. The same amphetamine psychosis explanation has been used for everyone from Jeffrey MacDonald to Adolf Hitler and Nazi blitzkrieg. I don't find it to be a particularly satisfying explanation.

Time's Aryn Baker reported:
In terms of pure profit, it’s hard to beat amphetamines. Unlike cocaine and heroin, the base ingredients are easy, and even legal, to obtain. A pill that costs pennies to produce in Lebanon retails for up to $20 a pop in Saudi Arabia, where some 55 million Captagon tablets are seized a year — a number that even Saudi officials admit amounts to only 10% of the overall total that actually makes it into the kingdom, according to the UNODC World Drug Report and a not-yet-published E.U. assessment of drug trafficking in the Middle East. Saudi Arabia alone accounts for more than one-third of global amphetamines seizures a year, and three-quarters of patients treated for drug problems there are addicted to amphetamines, almost exclusively in the form of Captagon. Qatar, Kuwait and the UAE have reported similar spikes in multimillion-tablet seizures of the drug in the past two years. 
And as the New Republic's Katie Drummond explained, the US Air Force in particular has used amphetamines — popularly known as "go pills" — to help pilots keep going during long missions:
For decades, the Air Force has been doling out amphetamines — dubbed "go pills" — meant to keep pilots awake and alert during long flights. Of course, the military sanction of these supplements (the Air Force relies specifically on Dexedrine, used among civilians to treat ADHD and narcolepsy) isn’t without controversy: In 2002, two Air National Guard pilots taking Dexedrine inadvertently bombed and killed four Canadian soldiers, leading to speculation that the drug had impaired their judgment.
So the same people currently bombing Syrian targets and fighters — who are reportedly on amphetamines — may be on amphetamines as well.


Saudi King Abdullah with Prince Abdel Aziz 

Some other members of Saudi royal family have also faced legal problems in other countries, though they managed to escape prosecutions.

In September, Saudi prince Majed Abdulaziz Al-Saud was arrested at a compound near Beverly Hills in Los Angles on accusation of trying to force a worker to perform a sex act.

The 28-year-old Saudi prince, however, was freed later on a USD 300,000 bail. The US authorities later said they would not pursue the charge due to a lack of evidence.

Documents filed by lawyers acting for three female employees of Al Saud claim that the royal attempted to urinate on the trio while screaming: 'I want to pee pee'.

He also threatened to kill one of the women if she refused to 'party' with him and jumped on top of another and began rubbing himself against her in a 'sexual and aggressive manner'. When asked to stop, Al Saud allegedly then yelled: 'I am a prince and I do what I want. You are nobody!'

"You are a nobody! I'm a prince and I will do what I want and nobody will do anything to me!' The women, by then hiding on a balcony, were spotted by one of Al Saud's assistants who screamed at them to get back to work, adding that they must be with the prince at all times and were not allowed to have breaks.

All three of the women claim to have seen the royal having his penis 'stroked' by a male aide and say they were forced to stay in the room and watch as the encounter unfolded.

Another says she was made to watch while a different male aide bent over and broke wind in Al Saud's face – apparently at his request. The women, all of whom are married with children, say they still have not been paid by the prince and are hoping to recover their lost earnings. 

'The decision by the D.A.'s office not to file charges shows that the accuser's stories cannot be substantiated. 'The sheikh is very happy to put it behind him and move on with his life.'

Also in September, Saudi diplomat Majed Hassan Ashoor sparked outrage by leaving India without facing justice over alleged sex crimes. He was accused of involvement in the rape, assault, torture and starvation of two Nepalese women held captive for over three months.

In 2013, a Saudi princess was also accused of enslaving a Kenyan woman as a housemaid in her house in Los Angeles. Her charges were later dropped.

Prince Saud bin Abdulaziz was convicted in 2009 of the sexually motivated killing of his Sudanese manservant Bandar Abdulaziz.

In 1999, a plane piloted by a Skyway International crew was blocked by French police at the Parisian airport of Le Bourget. The French police discovered Prince Nayef bin Sultan Al Shaalan on board with two tons of cocaine. He and his longterm mistress Doris Mangeri were attempting to smuggle the drug from Colombia to Paris.

From WikiLeaks: The underground party scene is "thriving and throbbing" in Saudi Arabia thanks to the protection of Saudi royalty, the dispatch said. But it is only available behind closed doors and for the very rich.

United States diplomats have described a world of "sex, drugs and alcohol" in which the official religious individuals of Saudi Arabian loyalties engage in, according diplomatic cables recently published by Wikileaks on Wednesday.

Dr. Saad al Faqih, a Saudi dissident living in London broadcasts via satellite into Saudi Arabia every night, denouncing the royal family. Last year al Faqih called for public demonstrations and an estimated 200 people took to the streets, the first time in memory such an event had taken place. Most of the participants were arrested.

"Well you know the official position in Saudi Arabia is that public demonstrations are not allowed," said Prince al Walid, adding that he was indifferent to the issue.
Prince al Walid insisted the royal family was beloved by its subjects.
"The interaction, the relation between the Saudi royal family and the people I would say is further than ideal, it's utopian," he said.
