I read this article at http://www.judicialwatch.org/press_release.asp?pr_id=1624 , which got me thinking that while Bush Sr. was president he was working out deals with the bin Laden family through his own personel companies and his powers as President of the United States. He got tied in with them, kept Iraq out of their country so that business could function as normaly as possible. Thus in turn leaving the Presidency and assuming a position in the Carlyle Group he could continue to amass more wealth and good will from the bin Laden family. This money might have been used to elect Bush jr. Not only that this brings into question that over the last decade millions of people have died, americans, iraqis, persians, kurds, kuwaitis, isrealis, and arabians just for money. Just so certain families can hold power and keep it. Perhaps if Osama bin Laden is actualy truly linked to the attacks in NYC, he might have not done them for Islam or some other "holy cause" but rather to make more money. Because as of now the bin Laden family is poised to make billions of dollars because of their links to US Banks via the Carlyle Group, these links, established by Bush Sr. are rooted in the military-industrial complex, which means as we increase all of our defense spending we will be making the bin Laden family richer. Just so the Bushs and bin Ladens can keep their power, wealth, so called "prestidge". All of this at the expense of millions of innocent people caught up in the machine which is not controlled by rational thinkers but rather by greedy money hungry families.
