Bandar Bush assassinated?

There are "unconfirmed reports" floating around that Bandar bin Sultan  was blown up by a bomb just days into his new gig as Saudi Chief of all intelligence agencies. The unconfirmed reporters claim this was payback for the Saudi-engineered blast in Damascus that took out a number of Syrian senior defense officials  a couple of weeks back.

The trouble with unconfirmed reports is that you never know if you're dealing with wishful thinking. One of the sites claims Press TV, the semi-official Iranian news site, broke the story, although I can't find it there. None of the usual Big News sites have the story, which doesn't mean it didn't happen, nor does it prove it did.

Maybe I'll just send him an e-mail and ask if he's OK.
