Description

A riveting portrait of one of the most enigmatic yet influential powerbrokers in America, Prince Bandar bin Sultan bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, the Saudi Arabian Ambassador to the United States from 1983-2005. As the illegitimate son of a Saudi prince and a servant girl, Prince Bandar overcame his unrecognized beginnings to rise as one of Saudi Arabia's brightest diplomatic stars, ultimately becoming the Ambassador to the United States and one of the most influential men in Washington. As Ambassador, Prince Bandar worked with CIA Director Bill Casey to fund covert CIA operations with Saudi petrodollars. He played a key role in the Iran-Contra affair; consulted with President Gorbachev to secure Soviet withdrawal from Afghanistan; negotiated an end to the Iran-Iraq war; and with Nelson Mandela, resolved the Pan Am Flight 103/Lockerbie Affair. He served under four different American presidencies and was called "Washington's indispensable operator" by the New Yorker. In this biography, RAF college friend and fellow pilot William Simpson pulls back the curtain for the first time on his fascinating life. With a preface by Nelson Mandela and a foreword by Margaret Thatcher, this biography of Prince Bandar is sure to become the definitive work on the engimatic Prince behind the White House.
