Bush Played Hankie-Pankie With Saudis On 9-11

cooperativeresearch.org

September 11, 2001 (Z): The Carlyle Group is a company closely associated with officials of the Bush and Reagan administrations, and has considerable ties to Saudi oil money, including ties to the bin Laden family (see September 27, 2001)http://www.cooperativeresearch.org/completetimeline/AAsaudi....
Those ties are well illustrated by the fact that on this day the Carlyle Group is hosting a conference at a Washington hotel. Among the guests of honor is investor Shafig bin Laden, brother to Osama. [Observer, 6/16/02]
observer.co.uk

September 13-19, 2001: Members of bin Laden's family and important Saudis are "driven or flown under FBI supervision to a secret assembly point in Texas and then to Washington from where they left the country on a private charter plane when airports reopened three days after the attacks." The flights to Texas and Washington occur before the national air ban is lifted. [New York Times, 9/30/01]

The Tampa Tribune reports that on September 13, Lear jet takes off from Tampa, Florida, carrying a Saudi Arabian prince, the son of the Saudi defense minister Prince Sultan (see August 2001 (G),

as well as the son of a Saudi army commander, and flies to Lexington, Kentucky, where the Saudis own racehorses. They then fly a private 747 out of the country. Multiple 747s with Arabic lettering on their sides are already there, suggesting another secret assembly point. The Tampa flight left from a private Raytheon hangar [Tampa Tribune, 10/5/01]

Prince Bandar, Saudi ambassador to the US, helps move the bin Laden family out of the US. [London Times, 11/25/02]

There have been conflicting reports as to whether the FBI interviewed these people before they left the country. Osama bin Laden's half brother, Abdullah bin Laden, stated that even a month after 9/11 his only contact with the FBI was a brief phone call. [Boston Globe, 9/21/01,

New Yorker, 11/5/01]

An earlier FBI attempt to investigate Abdullah was obstructed by higher-ups (see 1996).

The existence of these flights during the air travel ban is now usually referred to as an urban legend. [Snopes, 3/19/02

ROVE: KERRY HAS TASTE OF BUSH CAMPAIGN
story.news.yahoo.com

"...Kerry's vote authorizing force in Iraq (news - web sites), and on an array of military issues, put him "in a box" on the Iraq war, minimizing his ability to criticize Bush, Rove told the conservatives in the private meeting. In Rove's judgment, Kerry hurt himself by calling on one-time Democratic rival Howard Dean (news - web sites) to voice support for him. Dean was a fierce critic of the Iraq war, but most Americans outside the Beltway back Bush on national security issues, Rove said.

Rove complained that Democrats were criticizing Bush for failing to stem joblessness, when the unemployment rate is roughly the same as it was during President Clinton (news - web sites)'s 1996 run. Unemployment in February of this year was 5.6 percent; in February 1996, it was 5.5 percent.

He also said the gay marriage issue is beginning to help Bush, because polls are starting to shift in Bush's direction, with more people opposed to same-sex unions. But Rove implored the activists to add their voices to Bush's call for a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage to ensure that Bush is not perceived as standing alone on the issue.

And he expressed irritation that some disgruntled Republicans in Congress and elsewhere have increasingly chosen to go to the news media to air their complaints, rather than bringing them directly to the White House...."

AS,

What do you think of this sub rosa plot? Kerry is trying to out-right wing Bush in the Miami gusano districts. Comprende?

Don Giovanni,

Headlines? Who the f**k cares about headlines and headliners? Headlines are lies. Very convenient for some fascist pigs like Little Lord Fauntleroy. The real story is much more interesting.

YOU WANT HEADLINES? Let's get some real ones in the media:

Richard Clarke KOs the Bushies

Can "you" handle the truth?

Sincerely, Full Byrd(1) Kernel Norman Jessup, USMC
