Osama - put a large part of his money into George Jr's business ventures,
including Arbusto (Bush in Spanish) Energy.
Mr Bush was not long out of Harvard Business School when he started the company in 1978.
Osama's brother 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.

The Bush-Bin Laden Money Connection

According to a 1976 trust agreement, drawn shortly after George Bush senior
was appointed director of the Central Intelligence Agency, Saudi Sheik bin Laden appointed

James R. Bath. as his business representative in Houston. Bin Laden, along with his brothers, owns Bin Laden Brothers Construction,
one of the largest construction companies in the Middle East. According to White,
Bath told him that he had assisted the CIA in a liaison role with Saudi Arabia since 1976.


Houston Chronicle June 4, 1992, said federal officials were investigating the activities
of a Houston businessman accused of illegally representing Saudi interests in the U.S.

The U.S. businessman was James R. Bath ,

a past investor in companies controlled by the George W. Bush.

Among the Saudi interests were those of Saudi Sheik Salem M. bin Laden.

Back in 1992, the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network known as FinCEN and the FBI were reviewing accusations that entrepreneur Bath guided money to Houston from Saudi investors who wanted to influence U.S. policy under the Reagan and Bush administrations .

...once before, the bin Laden family profited handsomely because of Osama bin Laden's terrorist actions. The bin Laden family was hired to rebuild a U.S. Air Force base in Saudi Arabia after the
Khobar Towers were destroyed in 1996. Osama bin Laden was the chief suspect in that bombing.

More on: The Bush-Bin Laden Money Connection

What the CIA bio conveniently fails to specify (in its unclassified form, at least) is that the bin Laden's Maktab al-Khidamar (MAK)(A Group before Taliban),
was nurtured by Pakistan's state security services, the Inter-Services Intelligence agency, or ISI,
the CIA's primary conduit for conducting the covert war against Moscow's occupation.

George Bush, Sr. was Vice President and, by virtue of executive Order 12333,
in charge of all U.S. intelligence and narcotics operations from 1981 through 1989.
As President from 1989 through 1993, he continued and expanded his control in
these areas. Thus, it was Bush (the elder) who directly nourished and nurtured bin Laden's evolution.

Dramatic Confirmation From Indian Government

The web site of the Indian Embassy in Washington
contains dramatic confirmation for these positions. On
September 4, 2000, B. Raman, Director of India's Institute
for Topical Studies wrote an open letter to the U.S. Congress
entitled Pakistan's Noriega's. That eight-page article exposed
the depth of Pakistani government involvement in the drug trade.

In 1956, as reported by the Times Of London, during one of Israel's perpetual wars with its neighbors, the Mossad tried to trick the United States into siding with Israel against the Arabs by blowing up a US facility in Cairo and blaming the Arabs for it. The plot was wrecked when the operatives were caught confessed, creating a huge scandal. And according to Victor Ostrovski, a defector from the Mossad,
the USA was tricked into bombing Libya when the Mossad planted a radio transmitter in Tripoli
which sent out fake orders to terrorists which the USA could intercept.


In the 1960s the U.S. government developed plans to stage false attacks

Operation Northwoods
"We could develop a Communist Cuban terror campaign in the Miami area, in other Florida cities and even in Washington," said one document reportedly prepared by the Joint Chiefs of Staff. "We could blow up a U.S. ship in Guantanamo Bay and blame Cuba," the document says. "Casualty lists in U.S. newspapers would cause a helpful wave of indignation."

When Mayor Giuliani was an assistant prosecutor in charge of investigating the (BCCI)
Bank of Credit and Commerce International in the early 1990s, he received documents from Backes, according to "Revelation$." "Giuliani and agents of the FBI were delighted with the official documents [which Backes sent him]," the authors wrote. BCCI was a Pakistani-run bank registered via shell companies in the Cayman Islands that used secret accounts to effect an $8 billion global money-laundering fraud. Before it was shut down in 1991,
BCCI was used by U.S. and Saudi intelligence to fund the mujahedeen, then fighting the Soviet-supported government of Afghanistan.175.htm


n 1990, Neil Bush paid a $50,000 fine and was banned from banking activities for his role in taking down Silverado,
which actually cost taxpayers $1.3 billion. A Resolution Trust Corporation suit against Bush and other officers of Silverado was settled in 1991 for $26.5 million . . . A Republican fundraiser set up a fund to help defer costs Neil incurred in his S&L dealings . . . As a director of a failing thrift in Denver, Bush voted to approve $100 million in what were ultimately bad loans to two of his business partners. And in voting for the loans, he failed to inform fellow board
members at Silverado Savings & Loan that the loan applicants were his business partners. Federal banking regulators later followed the trail of defaulted loans to Neil Bush oil ventures, in particular JNB International, an oil and gas exploration company awarded drilling concessions in Argentina -- despite its complete lack of experience in international oil and gas drilling

Al-Sabah fled into exile in l990 when his country was occupied by Iraq, The Gulf war drove out the Iraqi forces and "liberated" Kuwait thus restoring the autocratic al-Sabah dynasty to its golden throne.

In the early spring of l992, Bush and his group were received in Kuwait George Sr., George W., Neil and Marvin Bush as well as James Baker, former secretary of state, and John Sununu, his former chief of staff. with full honors and heaped with "presents" "wealthy Kuwaitis flocked to the ceremonial dinners and receptions given for the Bush group, and patiently stood in line for hours to shower the former president with expensive gifts Cartier watches, diamond jewelry, strings of gold coins aggregately worth millions of dollars," says a former
New York Times reporter who covered the visit.

With the former president providing the supporting pitch, al-Sabah was pressured by Baker to grant his client, the giant Enron Corporation, a $4 billion contract to refurbish Kuwait's power grid. The project began with the al-Shuaiba facility, a 1,000-megawatt power plant just south of Kuwait City that had been destroyed by U.S. bombing.


Radio Afghan confirms renewed talk of oil pipeline.

Sidney Morning Herald reports that Caspian Sea Oil is the true objective of the war.

US firms' oil fees diverted to ministers 153.htm

Unocal, a California-based global energy company, heads up one of two consortiums engaged in fierce competition to build gas and oil pipelines from landlocked Turkmenistan to Pakistan through war-torn Afghanistan. Unocal's main partner in the consortium is Delta Oil Co., a Saudi-owned company, in whose behalf former White House legislative assistant Paul Behrends
and Delta's American vice-president Charles Santos,
a recent U.N. peace negotiator in Afghanistan, are busy lobbying in Washington.

The only other possible( besides Iranian ) pipeline-route is across Afghanistan
which has of course its own unique challenges. The country has been involved in bitter warfare
for almost two decades, and is still divided by civil war.
From the outset, we have made it clear that construction of the
pipeline we have proposed across Afghanistan
could not begin until a recognized government is in place
that has the confidence of governments, lenders, and our company.

The Army's School of Advanced Military Studies (SAMS ) " thinks Israel is capable..."
"Of the Mossad, the Israeli intelligence service, the SAMS officers say: ' Wildcard. Ruthless and cunning.
Has capability to target US forces and make it look like a Palestinian/Arab act.' The Washington Times

June 8, 1967, Israeli attack on the USS Liberty :

When four US fighter jets from a nearby aircraft carrier came to protect the Liberty,
US Defense Secretary Robert McNamara ordered the jets NOT to come to the Liberty's aid,
and allowed the Israeli attack to continue. Thirty-four Americans were killed and 171 wounded.
During the Six Day War, the Liberty, an American intelligence gathering ship, was sailing in international waters. Israeli aircraft and torpedo boats attacked it for 75 minutes.

In 1967 on the fourthday of the Six Day War, the armed forces of Israel attacked the American
intelligence ship USS Liberty for 90 minutes in international waters in
broad daylight following several hours of close, low-level
reconnaissance. Thirty-four men died, 171 were hurt, and the ship was
so badly damaged that it had to be scrapped.

The government of Israel has lied about the circumstances ever since,
telling a story markedly different from that told by American survivors.
Congress has refused to question Israel's demonstrably false account,
even though the State Department's own analysis finds the Israeli story
to be untrue.

The USS Liberty Memorial Web Site is a creation of Jim Ennes and Joe Meadors,

survivors of the attack,
with support and encouragement from the USS Liberty Veterans Association
and special help from John Gidusko and Gary Harvey.

SOME ODD FACTS! Supposedly, only one of the four cockpit voice recorders from the 9/11 planes has been found in working condition. The recordings made of FAA flight controllers talking to aircraft are also missing. With the exception of one still frame taken at an airport in Seattle of an Arab-looking man at a gate, no video from any of the departure gates of any of the four hijacked flights has been released to show Arabs getting on board those flights. The flight attendant who telephoned the ground gave the seat numbers of the men who hijacked her plane and those seats were assigned to names which do not appear on the FBI's list of Arab suspects; a list the FBI persists in waving about even though it has admitted that the hijackers were using skillfully forged IDs with stolen identities. And even more telling, the names of the alleged hijackers released by the FBI do not even appear on the published passenger lists of the four hijacked flights. Indeed the passenger lists are notable for the scarcity of any Arabic sounding names.

Texas homeland security chief David Dewhurst wanted Texans to feel confident in these trying times and as a Republican candidate for lieutenant governor wanted Texans to know he was taking his new anti-terrorism job seriously. So he purchased a full-color, four-page advertisement in Texas Monthly magazine a few days ago.The ad layout has received far more comment than any similar effort in recen history but perhaps for all the wrong reasons.In the ad, a military officer is depicted standing in front of an unfurled American flag, with the caption, "As chairman of the Governor's Task Force on Homeland Security, David Dewhurst encourages you to support President Bush and the brave men and woman of our Armed Forces as they fight to eliminate terrorism and work to restore confidence in our economy." Within hours of the magazine's hitting the streets last week, the Dewhurst campaign became inundated with calls some angry, some joking informing the state land commissioner that the officer in the photograph
was not an American general, but was clearly a German Luftwaffe officer complete with military decorations, insignias and a name tag bearing the German flag. 206.htm

November 2001 : The House of Representatives passed a proposed package of "economic stimulus" measures, strongly supported by Bush, that adds up to a stunning array of gifts to big corporations and the wealthy. According to the Congressional Research Service, of the $25.4 billion the repeal and resulting refunds would cost this year, $3.3 billion would go to seven companies, including IBM ($1.4 billion), General Motors ($832 million), and General Electric ($671 million). Another provision would reduce the top rate on long-term capital gains taxes from 20 percent to 18 percent. 210.htm
