The Bush Family’s Best Buddies
For sale: one used country – cheap
A very special relationship
Over the years, the Saudi Royal Family has put at least $1.4 billion into the hands of the Bush family and its friends.
That’s “billion” with a “b.”
Even in these days of inflation, that’s real money.
Did Bush go to Saudi Arabia to ask for lower oil prices or to assure the Saudis they could keep sticking it to us as long as he and his family were given their cut?
Don’t be too surprised.
In the days right after 9/11, all commercial flights in US air space including those for Congressmen and the FBI, the private jets of billionaires, and transportation for donated organs were shut down.
There was one exception…
The White House arranged for dozens of still unnamed Saudi Arabians living in the US – including members of the House of Saud and the Bin Laden family – to be flown out of the country in style.
The FBI didn’t think it was necessary to get a passenger list…but if you show up at a peace rally, they’ll be sure to get your face on video and add your name to their database if you’re arrested at one.
The US news media didn’t think this post 9/11 “mercy” flight for Bush’s personal friends was worth investigating.
How deep the connection goes
“September 13, 2001 – Thousands of Americans were dead. They have been killed in a terrorist operation largely run by Saudis. Nonetheless the two men (Bush and Prince Bandar Of Saudi Arabia) each lit up a Cohiba cigar (on the Truman balcony of the White House)…
Few Americans realized that these two dynasties had a history dating back more than twenty years. Not just business partners and personal friends, the Bushes and the Saudis had pulled off elaborate covert operations and gone to war together…
They had been involved in the Iran-contra scandal, in secret U.S. aid in the Afghanistan War that gave birth of Osama bin Laden.”
