totally agree about this point .

Kabariti cannot be seen as an "objective" source. A confident of Queen Noor he made intrigues against then CP Hassan with whom he had been fighting a lot during his term as Prime minister. The fact that he was really detested by PHassan may have helped him to get the job as KA's first Chief of the Royal Court in 1999. But in this job he tried to pursue his very own political agenda instead of that of the king - believing that the new king would be too inexperienced to rein him in and often thwarting the work of then Prime minister Rawabdeh. The consequent antagonism between the Prime minister and the Chief of the Royal Court really didn't help, that is why the king sacked both men unceremoniously already in June 2000, something that Kabariti would never forgive him ...
Obviously the king had to realize after a rather short while that he couldn't trust this man.

Totally agree with you veram98 I remember ars reports in 1999 when King Abdullah II took power.. Kabariti was reported as one of the few close politicians to the new king then. After publishing this letter on wikileaks i dont think he can blame the king & queen for not trusting any one !!!

I can not agree with you ; criticizing your policy does not mean that your not loyal ; I agree with the fact that lacking his father's experience and charisma lead him to think that those old politicians want to guide me instead of the opposite ! this is the wrong side for many young leaders ;they do not trust elders and bring their stuff whom will be loyal to them only for the sake that they are considered their teams ...

I dont think also Kabariti`s words means he is not loyal!!It is difficult to find a Jordanian politician who is against the king or monarchy. Even the bitterest opponents politicians of the king are demanding reforms.
The late king Hussein built this experiences over many many years in power.. you cannot compare one decade experience to about five. Maybe our current revolutions (Arab spring) are similar to what happen with KH during president Nasser & republics era but i think the problem in Jordan is his politicians not the king`s policies. I believe KA has given the opportunity to the elders as well as the new generations ,But unfortunately they all failed to achieve the required change. They must provide attractive & Comprehensive election programs to gain voters instead of relying on tribal and other prevailing electoral factors in our societies. That`s why i agree with veram!!

If people critisize something usually it means they care.Only if someone stops telling you that you´re doing wrong they are not loyal-because they stoped caring and gave up on you.Nobody likes bad comments or critics but if they have something constructive,solution-orientated to say it is of great help and you should be grateful to the one who pointed out your errors.

I think this is really important for all Arab countries who are currently facing political uproar and demands for change:
There needs to be more political diversity,acchievement and educational background needs to be valued more than family relations and corruption has to be restricted,the universities and schools need to teach the young people skills they really need for modern life and earning money (while they can still learn about the Quran in their freetime) and learn to value their own tradition and culture while also respecting others who have a different cultural background or religion!

Can we please move on from this discussion? We've totally lost sight of the topic of the thread and ventured into the realm of Jordanian politics.

Thanks
