5. He is a hypocrite in a tenuous position.
The Saudis rely on American troops to keep them from being pitchforked by their own people. The Saudi people hate the royal family almost as much as they hate Israel and it's treatment of the Palestinians. By saying this the Prince is throwing a PR bone to the Saudi people. Pure lip service.
