His royal highness prince Talal ibn Abdulazizi said on Twitter:
There are some foreign journalists/intellectuals who I find troubling, such as the American writer Simon Henderson, who is the author of the well-known "Foreign Policy " magazine. Mr. Henderson has proven to be tendentious, and more often than not, does not write his own opinion, he mostly writes what has been dictated to him by well-known intelligence agencies. In most cases, Mr. Henderson writes about high profile dignitaries in our country and others who appear frequently in the press, have their pictures and their movements posted in great detail.
Despite the Liberalization of the media and Mr. Henderson's own country, many of the journalists including this author himself, are looking for news that is of interest for some, and continue writing about them and recall their predictions from time to time about their future and not the future of their country. These particular journalists are bound by chains of fear, Hypocrisy and Duplicity. Such writings do not serve any of the faithful people who work for the benefit of their countries, occupying their thoughts, stressing their health for the present and future of their country.
Aren't these matters annoying? The question is: "How can a person proceed in this tense atmosphere that revolves around itself, and does not give to the country even the minimum care of interest in the present or in the future?"
