Wasn’t it Salem bin-Laden, Osama’s cousin, that loaned Dubya cash for his first oil company venture?
Didn’t the Bush family recommend the bin-Laden family for acceptance in the Carlyle Group, an investment company that invests heavily in energy and military-related companies?
Wasn’t G.W. Bush Sr. having brunch with a bin-Laden family member on the morning of 9/11?
After all, didn’t Bush allow all the members of the bin-Laden family to get on a plane and fly out of US airspace, while everybody else was grounded?
“I don’t know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don’t care. It’s not that important. It’s not our priority.”
– G.W. Bush, 3/13/02
“I am truly not that concerned about him.”
– G.W. Bush, repsonding to a question about bin Laden’s whereabouts,
3/13/02 (The New American, 4/8/02)
Bin Laden lost his protector when Dubya left office.
Sounds like the Bushes and the bin-Laden’s have had a friendly relationship for a few decades. I would expect the Bushes to send their condolences….it is only proper.
