Wikileaks has recently released over 100 thousand confidential cables from the Saudi Arabian regime that revealed the government’s plots, correspondences, and actions over the last few years, including their role in the Arab Spring and Arab affairs.

From meddling in the political affairs of their neighbors, to boasting about lavish purchases: the Saudi regime has been exposed by a group of activists from Wikileaks.

Perhaps the most troubling correspondence that was revealed by Wikileaks was the Saudi cable about the overthrow of the Syrian Arab Republic’s President, Dr. Bashar Al-Assad, and his current government in Damascus.

The controversial cable revealed the Saudi regime’s fear that the government in Damascus might look for some-sort of reprisal due to their financial and political support of the opposition groups operating inside and outside the borders of Syria. .

While Saudi Arabia has not been shy in stating that they publicly support the Syrian Opposition and their armed forces; these controversial cables have revealed the Saudi regime’s fears that their participation in this Syrian Conflict might have an adverse effect on their future security and political relations in the region.

The Syrian government has not publicly stated their intentions to retaliate against the Saudi regime; however, the two governments currently have no political relations and no plans for political rapprochement in the future.

As a result of these leaked cables, the Saudi regime has threatened its citizens with imprisonment if they are caught reading or distributing these cables to the public.
