    "Bin Laden's family link to Bush"
    by PETER ALLEN, Daily Mail, 9/24/01

    "In summer 1971, Osama and Salem Bin Laden enjoyed a holiday in Sweden with some of their 55 brothers and sisters. Yet within a few years, the two teenagers' lives had taken stunningly different turns. As the world knows to its cost, Osama embraced Islamic fundamentalism and 30 years later was named the world's most wanted man.

    Incredibly, Salem went on to become a business partner of the man who is leading the hunt for his brother. In the 1970s, he and George W Bush were founders of the Arbusto Energy oil company in Mr Bush's home state of Texas.

    Mr Bush was not long out of Harvard Business School when he started the company in 1978. Salem watched it grow into a hugely successful business until his death in a microlight plane crash in Texas in 1983.

    "As he built his own business empire, Salem Bin Laden had an intriguing relationship with the president-to-be. In 1978, he appointed James Bath, a close friend of Mr Bush who served with him in the Air National Guard, as his representative in Houston, Texas. It was in that year that Mr Bath invested $50,000 (about £34,000) in Mr Bush's company, Arbusto.

    There was even speculation that the money might have been from Salem. In the same year, Mr Bath bought Houston Gulf Airport on behalf of the Saudi Arabian multimillionaire. Three years ago, Mr Bush said the $50,000 investment in Arbusto was the only financial dealing he had with Mr Bath. Last night a White House spokesman was unavailable for comment.

    "...Yesterday FBI agents swooped on a Boston suburb where around 20 of the wealthy relatives of Bin Laden live.

    The Best Enemies Money Can Buy

    10/14/01 10:50pm
    Since the Sept. 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, major media powerhouses and the increasingly influential alternative media alike have begun to focus attention on Bush family connections and a long history of arming and financing America's attackers in the months and years prior to the outbreak of war.

    Recent stories in the Wall Street Journal (Sept. 27 & 28, 2001), ABC News (Oct. 1, 2001), as well as a host of reports from so-called alternative news sources have begun to focus attention on the Bush family's profit-making role in creating and arming our enemies.

    WSJ - Bush Sr. In Business
    With bin Ladin Family
    Via Carlyle Group

    WASHINGTON, DC -Judicial Watch, the public interest law firm that investigates and prosecutes government corruption and abuse, reacted with disbelief to The Wall Street Journal report of yesterday that George H.W. Bush, the father of President Bush, works for the bin Laden family business in Saudi Arabia through the Carlyle Group, an international consulting firm.

    The senior Bush had met with the bin Laden family at least twice. (Other top Republicans are also associated with the Carlyle group, such as former Secretary of State James A. Baker.)

    "This has the potential of making 'Billygate' (Jimmy Carter's brother's dealings with Libya) look like small potatoes," added Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

    A family's, and a nation's, divided loyalties.
    Issue of 2001-11-12
    Posted 2001-11-05

    On September 11th, Wafah Binladin, a twenty-six-year-old graduate of Columbia Law School, was finishing the summer holidays with her family in Geneva. Later, she says, she heard the news that the prime suspect was her uncle Osama bin Laden. (Some members of the family prefer "Binladin.") "I thought then, Oh, no! I'll never be able to go back to the States again."

    the family, despite its pro-American reputation, holds loyalties that are more complicated than either Abdullah or the family's many influential American friends, defenders, and business partners might have known. (The family keeps tens and possibly hundreds of millions of dollars invested in American companies and financial institutions.)

    "People keep asking me, 'Why aren't they on TV denouncing him? Are they really separate?' "

    What Was Behind The Warming Of Relations Between Bush And The Taliban?

    "...Those who have followed the warming of relations between the Bush administration and Kabul are asking why the Bush administration wasn't alerted to an impending attack through Taliban back-channels.

    No sooner had the Bush administration taken over than the Taliban's ambassador-at-large, Rahmatullah Hashami, sat down with senior CIA, State and Pentagon officials in a meeting arranged by Laili Helms, the Taliban's unofficial representative in the United States and niece-in-law of Richard Helms, former CIA director and U.S. ambassador to Iran.

    "Powell was reportedly upset about the re-establishment of ties with the Taliban and Pakistani Islamists, but has apparently been overruled by the dominant CIA interests in the administration. Intelligence sources point out that, for its part, the CIA wanted to re-establish contact with murky ex-mujahedin and Taliban-allied arms- and drug-smuggling fronts in Rawalpindi and Peshawar.

    Bin Laden's family members whisked out of US
    As many as 24 members of terrorist suspect Osama Bin Laden's family were flown out of the US after the September 11 terrorist attacks in New York and Washington, Saudi Ambassador Price Bandar bin Sultan said on US television.

    May 23 Congressional Letter Urged Bush To Speak Out Against Taliban
    WASHINGTON - 05.23.01 | U.S. Representative Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) today organized a letter signed by more than 100 of her colleagues, including Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-IL) and Democratic Leader **** Gephardt (D-MO), calling on President Bush to intervene on behalf of Afghanistan's Hindu minority.

    Feds Looked Into G.W. Bush-Bin Laden Connection In '92. Part One
    Bush Said Friend's Arbusto Investment Was His Own, Not Saudi Money. Friend "Declined To Comment For The Record." Part Two
    Houston Chronicle. June 4, 1992. "Federal authorities are investigating the activities of a Houston businessman -- a past investor in companies controlled by a son of President Bush -- who has been accused of illegally representing Saudi interests in the United States.

    Excerpts From "Bush Family Preys"
    "JEB GETS IN ON THE BCCI ACTION In 1988, Jeb was mentioned in a deposition taken by a Senate Foreign Relations subcommittee, chaired by Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.), which was investigating drug money laundering operations in the U.S. I saw Jeb Bush two or three times over there with [Abdur] Sakhia," stated Aziz Rehman, a junior BCCI-Miami official in the 1980s.

    "This was all part of the bank's trying to cultivate public officials and prominent individuals." *38 Rehman said BCCI's practice was to "bribe" government officials in the United States. "Jeb Bush, V.P. George Bush's son,"Sakhia noted in a 1986 BCCI document, was a "name to be remembered."

    Bush is not doing a good job of protecting America. It would be far more accurate to say he's doing a good job of destroying it.
    The super "patriotic" Bush family have a consistent habit of building up dictators, supplying them with arms, reaping the profits for themselves and their wealthy friends and then declaring their onetime allies to be the ultimate evil requiring a new war and the loss of American lives.

    GW Bush's grandfathers were key supporters of and Wall Street investment bankers for Adolf Hitler during more than a decade preceding the U.S. entering WWII. In 1942 the U.S. Congress seized their assets as Nazi fronts under the Trading With the Enemy Act. Former President Bush and some of his top his cabinet members were very close allies of Saddam Hussein before the Gulf War, which may have begun when the Bush administration signaled Iraq that an invasion of Kuwait would be tolerated by the U.S.

    Under the Reagan-Bush administration (in large part run by former CIA director and Reagan Vice President, George Bush) Usama Bin Laden was financed, armed and had his army of terrorists - "the evil-doers" - trained by the CIA. The wealthy Saudis who are bin Laden's money men are also business partners with the Bush family. At what point will Americans dare to question the President about these business relationships?

    Follow the Money Behind Bush II - Revealing Article from Observer (London) -- Neighbors and Nature Forum - Southeast Neighbors and Nature Project Forum, hosted at

    from pages 54-56 of "Fortunate Son" by J.H. Hatfield
    In one of the most bizarre footnotes in history, Time magazine described Bush in 1991 as a "deal broker whose alleged associations run from the CIA to a major shareholder and director of the bank of Credit & Commerce."

    BCCI, as it was more commonly known, was closed down in July 1992 amid charges of multi-billion dollar fraud and worldwide news reports that the institution had been involved in covert intelligence work, drug money laundering, arms brokering, bribery of government officials and aid to terrorists. An accounting commissioned by the Bank of England finally exposed the extent of BCCI's deficits and criminal offenses, forcing the bank's eventual collapse.

    This Horrifies Me


    We're supposed to be looking for the brother of our pResident's business partner and friend. I'm I the only one connecting the dots here?


    Furthermore, up until AFTER 9/11, Bush Sr. worked for the Company that the Bin Laden's owned a huge piece of (Carlyle). They sold their shares because it looked bad after 9/11. They even said this was why.

    So, that's TWO REAL ties to the people who supposedly killed all those americans and not one sound from anybody about it.

    We go and trash Afghanistan AND Iraq and kill thousands and still no Bin Laden. We've spent BILLIONS when the closet tie to Bin Laden that we know of is leading the charge.

    Bush always alluded that Bin laden and Saddam MIGHT be working together. Well, he and his family ARE working with Bin Laden's family.

    This is SO SICK.

    Send it to everyone you know.

    More Horror

    Our troops had him and his men pinned down in some caves on the Afghan border and were about to close in to capture or kill when they were told to not advance any futher.

    They THEN watched OUR MILITARY airlift them out of the area. It is not known absoluelty if Osama was with them but, they thought so and his highest ranking men WERE there and he probably was, too.

    We are working WITH Bin Laden.

    I've see disinformation that says it was Osama's planes that did it but, I've seen army reports that aren't public that said it was our own that lifted them out. What's more, our military was told to stand down so, they watched in frustration:

    Al-Qaida fighters
    airlifted to safety
    Daring 5-night operation rescued 3,000 terrorists from Afghanistan

    It was just before midnight Nov. 21 when Russian-made Antonov aircraft without markings began landing at the bombed-out airport of Konduz in northern Afghanistan.

    The Northern Alliance's conquest of the Afghan city was still five days away, and a small group of Pakistani military intelligence officers and soldiers – all of whom had been serving with the Taliban – waited anxiously on a runway, together with a large number of Pakistanis wounded in battle lying on blankets. The planes were coming to take them home.

    Around 5 p.m. earlier that day, U.S. bombings of the airport had suddenly stopped. As they waited for the airlift, the Pakistanis understood the rescue of their men trapped in Konduz had been set up in a silent agreement between their government, or commanding officers, and the U.S. Two planes were to touch down every night to pick them up until the evacuation was finished.

    But as the airlift began, Pakistani air crews and their passengers were astonished to see they had company on the runways of Konduz – a second fleet of Antonov transports was running a parallel airlift on some mysterious mission.

    Military sources have solved the mystery: The planes belonged to Osama bin Laden's al-Qaida.
    (once again, our military gives us a plausible explanation for a mystery that isn't true. it was our OWN military)

    Here's another spin on the story, note the attitude of US and England:

    London: A large number of the 5,000 or so Taliban and Al Qaida troops now battling US forces in Afghanistan were airlifted away from Kunduz by Pakistan, says an independent investigative group.

    The Asia Pacific Foundation says in a report that India had protested to the US at the time of the airlift from Kunduz but the protest was ignored. Russia and China are also reported to have sent information to the US about the airlift.

    Investigative journalist Seymour Hersh of the New Yorker magazine had revealed earlier that neither the US nor Britain has responded to the concerns expressed. (because we were behind it)

    The report says the fighters who included many Pakistanis were secretly airlifted by Pakistan during the Northern Alliance siege of Kunduz, and that most of these have regrouped and rearmed in Pakistan.

    The strong protests of the Northern Alliance have also been ignored, and “what has irked its various components is that they were prevented from capturing Kunduz for three vital days, and also from capturing key Taliban and Al Qaida fighters who could have provided invaluable information,” the report says.

    Washington had denied media reports of the airlift but it was noted that the “denial” by US secretary of state Donald Rumsfeld was equivocal and exposed what some believe to have been a difference of opinion between the US defence department and the state department, with the latter taking a more lenient view of the Pakistani request to go ahead with the airlift, the report says.

    Indian intelligence agencies, according to Hersh, are convinced that many of the airlifted fighters have infiltrated into Kashmir.

    An Indian military adviser was quoted by Hersh as saying that when the airlift began “we knew within minutes,” and that the airlift had rescued not only members of the Pakistani military but Al Qaida fighters as well.

    This is shocking to say the least. But it's not surprising. It seems that all or most politicians who make it to the level of the White House are discovered to be in some scandal or other but this is atrocious. How does this compare to Clinton and Lewinsky?

    It makes you wonder what American's patriotism is really based on. Waving and flying the flag and singing a national athem means what and to whom? Baseball, hot dogs and mom's apple pie? Who are the REAL Americans?

    "How does this compare to Clinton and Lewinsky?"

    Oh, it compares most WONDERFULLY, my dear.

    Clinton set a precedent that we desperately need right now. That blowjob just might save the world. I mean this.

    He was impeached for the most trivial of things right? Nope.

    He was impeached because he LIED.

    We have COUNTLESS LIES documented from *ush. And, already, MAJOR players, real heavyweights are asking for investigations and impeachment.

    If Clinton can go for lying about a helmet polishing, THIS GUY is toast.

    The real americans are the people this country was built for and by, the elite. The rest of us have been tennent that pay rent and have to live by their rules while we pay off their properties and they get rich off of us.

    They sell us the idea that we are all americans. But, you ain't benefitting from belonging to a club and they're hurting you and not letting you enjoy the priviledges of membership then, you DO NOT belong to that club. No matter WHAT you tell people or have been told or want to believe.

    However, this can always be reversed if we spread knowledge around, since it's POWER.
