Vinnell targeted again: How a U.S. Company Props Up the House of Saud
'A January 1996 article in Jane's Defence Weekly describes the SANG [Saudi Arabian National Guard] as "a kind of Praetorian Guard for the House of Saud, the royal family's defence of last resort against internal opposition."... "I don't think it was an accident that it was that office that got bombed. If you wanted to make a political statement about the Saudi regime you'd single out the National Guard, and if you wanted to make a statement about American involvement you'd pick the only American contractor involved in training the guard: Vinnell."'
