As the U.S. general public becomes more suspecting of Saudi Arabia, a Washington post report reveals a massive network of millions of dollars paid lobbyist firms in the U.S. under Saudi’s payroll.
The hired firms include “Washington’s premier law and lobby firms — including Podesta Group, BGR Government Affairs, DLA Piper and Pillsbury Winthrop.”
The lobbyists engage in all sorts of affairs including running the Twitter and social media pages of the so-called Syrian opposition.
The Post reports, “In 2014, consultants at the PR firm Qorvis developed content for the Saudi Arabia embassy’s YouTube and Twitter pages, and ran the Twitter account for the Syrian Opposition Coalition.”
Apparently the Syrian opposition was not that Syrian after-all.
