Bandar bin Bush is in trouble…

Plus, his sickly expensive house is still on the market.

The Aspen, Colorado home of Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan is still up for sale, one year after it was given the biggest price tag in US history.

The Hala Ranch has a price tag of $135m (£67m), which made it the most expensive single family home in the US.

The main residence has 15 bedrooms and 16 bathrooms and at 56,000 square feet it is bigger than the White House.

It also features its own hair and beauty salon, an indoor swimming pool, steam room, gym, and heated stables.

The estate has its own water treatment plant, garage facilities including petrol pumps and a car wash and extensive security facilities.

It is located in a fashionable ski resort that has been the home to many celebrities.

But the housing slowdown in the US seems to be causing problems for even the richest of house sellers, as the house has been on the market for a considerable period of time.

But…butbutbut…I thought the Bush Crime Family was supposed to be good for the economy.

Well, yeah. It was. For a certain sector of the economy, anyway…

The BBC and the Guardian newspaper say that BAE Systems made payments worth hundreds of millions of pounds to Prince Bandar as part of the Al-Yamamah arms deal between Britain and Saudi Arabia in the 1980s.

…namely, the arms huckster sector. (Links added.)

Now we know how Bandar bin Bush managed to be able to afford such a fucking outrageous crib.

One only wonders if BAE feels it got value for its money.
