"When it first came into office Bush Co. wanted something from the Taliban, and it wasn't Osama's head. They wanted to run a gas pipeline from the fields around the Caspian sea across Afghanistan to Pakistan and into India. This enormous project would have benefited many of their corporate donors, including Unocal, Halliburton, and Enron."

Cui bono

Bradford comments; What the Bush administration is terrified of is that the 9/11 commission would look into the fact that during the first part of his term in office, he was funding the Taliban. Now folks, you have to consider this very carefully, I mean this: Gas prices are set by Saudi's we ushered out of our country when we were attacked on 9/11. A whole plane load of Bush, Osama friendlies, and family members were given planes to get out of the country without questioning. Less than a day later we had all the pieces of the puzzle, as if it was all there in the first place, minus a bunch of Saudi's from the family of Bin Laden. The Saudi's still fund Osama. Therefore our gas prices pay for the nerver ending war on terror. Here we have created the perfect Orwellian perpetual motion war machine. Literally Eureka!

Please try to think this through. Our Gas prices go up. Bush and the Carlyle group along with Haliburton profit. Money goes into the coffers of the Saudi's. Bush deletes massive information on the Saudi connection in reports and certainly doesn't want anyone to look at what they were doing before 9/11 for funding the Taliban that payed for the bombs and strippers the night on 9/10. Since most of the hijackers were Saudi, we wonder, well certainly the prime target should have been funded Saudi's. But Saudi's are in cahoots with Bush Daddy and Cheney. They have found a way for the United States, with great SUV's to:

A.) make Americans pay for the salaries of Haliburton to the tune of well over 200 billion dollars. We have the entire Iraq nation on Enron bookkeeping standards.

B.) Our Gas prices go to pay for Terrorism through Saudi funding. This is a wonderful conveyer belt and the 9/11 commission will never get to the issues. White Wash, White Wash and White Wash.

Pay attention 9/11 Commission: The real reason Bush dropped the ball on Bin Laden was ENRON

by RA in LA

"Richard Clarke is right in his claims that the Bush administration dropped the ball on pursuing Bin Laden, but he is being too generous in saying it was due to a preoccupation with "cold war" priorities. It was a preoccupation with Enron and they dropped the ball on purpose.

I don't buy the whole Bush and Cheney didn't know Osama was a threat story. Sorry, but this bunch always knows what's going on. Intelligence is their thing. Remember Daddy was a CIA chief. These people don't do something because they missed it; everything they do, or don't do, is calculated.

First, one must remember that everything the Bush/Cheney crowd do is guided by one simple principle: secure as much of the world's oil and gas as possible for exploitation by their corporate donors. They are, after all, all oil men -- even Rice who has a Chevron super tanker named after her.

When it first came into office Bush Co. wanted something from the Taliban, and it wasn't Osama's head. They wanted to run a gas pipeline from the fields around the Caspian sea across Afghanistan to Pakistan and into India. This enormous project would have benefited many of their corporate donors, including Unocal, Halliburton, and Enron. Enron had a $3 billion investment in the Dabhol power plant, near Bombay on India's west coast which desperately needed a source of cheap natural gas to succeed. An amazing article "The Enron-Cheney-Taliban Connection?" by Ron Callari of the Albion Monitor lays it all out.

To get their pipeline, Bush and Cheney not only had to ignore the pesky problem of Osama who was a welcome guest of the Taliban, they ACTIVELY sucked up to the extreme Islamic fundamentalists that ruled the country. They gave them $43 million in aid during those eight months of "neglect." See Robert Sheer's "Bush's Faustian Deal With the Taliban" published May 22, 2001 in the Los Angeles Times.

When the secret negotiations for the pipeline failed to go their way, Bush Co. reportedly threatened the Taliban with a rain of bombs if they insisted on no for an answer.

Now the rest of how this probably played out is not pleasant to hear, especially if you lost a friend or family member on 9/11. And this is the reason, Bush and Cheney have blocked the investigations at every turn and controlled them tightly when they couldn't be stopped--an effort that continues quite successfully to this day.

When the Taliban were threatened with a rain of bombs, they decided to go ahead with the ultimate terrorist act, which they may have been planning for a while anyway. They were true Islamic nut jobs, not open to getting rich off the infidels' pipeline (especially when their requests for additional development for Afghanistan were turned down). The intelligence community got wind of the coming attacks over the summer, and Bush and Cheney, knowing that their threatened rain of bombs would cheered by the America public after an attack, decided to let it go ahead. They did nothing to beef up airline security. They held their first high level anti-terrorist meeting on September 4, when they knew it was too late to do anything meaningful to stop the attacks.

I think it's very misleading to convey the idea (as most in the mainstream media have done) that no one saw it coming. Ashcroft saw it coming; he stopped flying commercial jets in July. Top Pentagon brass saw it coming down to the exact time. See: [www.btinternet.com] It has a copy of a Newsweek article, dated Sept. 24 issue (2001), that contains the following sentence: "On Sept. 10, NEWSWEEK has learned, a group of top Pentagon officials suddenly canceled travel plans for the next morning, apparently because of security concerns." This would indicate that they knew, more or less, exactly when the attacks were going to happen. I also remember reading that the NSA was monitoring Atta's phone calls with Al-Qaeda leaders overseas. I never believed the claim that these conversations were not translated in time. This intelligence was a top priority. And it would explain why the Pentagon brass suddenly knew it was a bad idea to fly the next morning.

When the attacks were launched, somehow the normal, expected air defense failed to materialize; nothing was done to thwart the attacks until they were complete.

And our man in Afghanistan, who once negotiated for Unocal, is now running the show trying to revive the pipeline.

Iraq, too, is about oil. Fighting terrorism, as Clark and many other have said, has nothing to do with it.

This assessment also explains why Cheney has fought so hard to keep his energy meetings secret. He wants to keep a tight lid on all they were doing to help Enron which was in serious trouble even as the administration took office. The revelation that they stopped pursuing the world's most dangerous terrorists because of a deal they wanted to make with the Taliban to help Enron would not help them in the polls, too say the least.

But don't expect any of this scenario to be suggested by the mainstream media. They know, at least the ones in the know, that it's far better for the president if we are made to believe his gang is incompetent, rather than treasonous.

And if the 9/11 commission fails to pursue the pipeline connection, as seems the case so far, it will go down in the history books as a pathetic joke."

Hey Bradford,

This to me is closer to a possibility than some of the other theories I have heard. I sense an explosion is about to happen on this side of the world in more ways than one. Irregardless of whether one likes or dislikes Mr. Clinton, I like, I have a funny feeling he is about to burst onto the scene like never before. Too much is at stake. I think these papers he sent from his archives are about to hitthe news and boy is it going to be something.

I'm with ya on this attempt to shake out the hidden lies and betrayals of this treason filled adminstration.

Clinton warned and gave advice but Bush and Republicans hated Clinton as poison. Perhaps they can start to eat some of the poison that they generated in a far more dangerous world.

The worst happened on Bush Watch not Clinton's.

I think basically this is what is about to happen right now: swollowing their own poison. It seems to me they thought they would rise above and be above any kind of recrimination. But that's not the way it is working out and thank goodeness. The more they hide or try to stop the people from testifying truthfully, as in the case of the medical bill, the more the American people are getting suspicious. Before it seemed as if they held him above being a politician but now the fabrications are seeping out of the woodwork. I sense a few emboldened employees coming forward real soon. The cards are crumbling, or at least it seems to me.

"Craig Unger: As you say, air space was completely restricted up through 9/13. And on that day, the first flight took off from Tampa, Fl., to Lexington. I found at least eight airplanes that stopped in 12 American cities. This was a massive operation. They picked up roughly 140 Saudis, roughly two dozen members of the bin Laden family, and they simply were not interrogated or interviewed seriously. One of the basic rules in any criminal investigation is that even in the most commonplace murder, you interview the friends and relatives of the perpetrator. That doesn't mean they're guilty, of course. It's just to acquire information. In this case, flying required White House approval. And we know they got White House approval because nothing could fly then. In addition, Richard Clarke told me so. He was the counter-terrorism czar in the situation room at the White House, and he said that he was party to these conversations. He said that it was OK so long as they were vetted by the FBI.

The problem is that they were not vetted by the FBI. There was no serious investigation. I was able to obtain the passenger list for four of the planes. We have to presume innocence on the part of most people on the planes, but we do know that one person in particular is highly suspicious, and that is Prince Ahmed bin Salman, who was a very high-ranking member of the royal family and was said to have been a link between the royal family and al-Qaeda who may have had foreknowledge of 9/11."

The con artist who suckers people into a shell game counts on his ability to divert the eye of the bettor in order to win.

So it is that George W. Bush and Dick Cheney have launched a sham war on terror without targeting the chief financier and backer of terrorism, Saudi Arabia.

In his book, "House of Bush, House of Saud," journalist Craig Unger lays out a compelling case that the Bush family is so inextricably bound up with the Saudi royal family that it could not hold them responsible for the role that many Saudi Arabians played in the 9/11 day of terror.

The shell game Bush played meant diverting the American public's attention to Iraq, which had no apparent role in 9/11. Although 15 of the 19 hijackers were Saudi, bin Laden is a member of one of the wealthiest families in Saudi Arabia, and the Saudis financed bin Laden, Bush managed to convince most Americans that the majority of 9/11 hijackers were Iraqi and that Saddam Hussein played a key role in the attack. That's how a political shell game works. Only in this case, thousands of lives were lost in a con job in which the American people were played for suckers by their own leadership.

Unger begins his book with an incident that Greg Palast first uncovered in late 2001. Why did the Bush Cartel allow 140 Saudi citizens, including members of the bin Laden family, to be flown out of the United States, without questioning, at a time when U.S. airspace was closed and when they might have had information useful in unraveling the crime of 9/11?

It's a good question, and the answers are shocking.

In essence, the Bush Cartel has sold Americans a bill of goods. They have diverted our attention from the major nation state supporting Al-Qaeda because they don't want to attack their own business partners, including the Saudi who bailed Harken Oil out. He's the same guy that was deeply involved with BCCI, the corrupt bank that Poppy Bush and many of his cohorts were associated with. There are plenty more like him. Just read Unger's book.

It is hard to put your arms around the gravity of Bush's betrayal of our nation. Americans just don't want to believe that anyone sitting in the Oval Office, even if unelected, could be a traitor to the interests of his own country.

But, when it comes to Saudi Arabia, the Bush family's business interests and personal relationships take precedence over our interests as a nation.

Remember, the Bush Cartel censored 28 pages in Congress's 9/11 reports. The subject of those 28 pages was reportedly the Saudi financing of terrorist front organizations and "charities."

Unger, a respected journalist, concludes that Bush must believe that "the billionaire Saudi royals are somehow more worthy of the government's concern than are the victims of 9/11."
