Turki Bush

As SmartActivist points out (headline for July 21 linking to this article):

"'Bandar Bush' is being replaced by Saudi Arabia's former intelligence chief, Prince Turki al-Faisal, to be known from now on as 'Turki Bush'."


That's like replacing the most spectacularly successful ambassador in Washington in recent years with Darth Vader. Bandar is leaving for what is described as 'private reasons', which is what you'd say if the departure wasn't voluntary. Prince Turki al-Faisal mysteriously resigned as Saudi intelligence chief on September 1, 2001.
