9-11 Commission Covers Up Bush Family Ties

by Cloak and Dagger Wednesday, Jul. 16, 2003 at 2:56 PM

You expect maybe to find suck revelations in the New Yuk Times? Yeah, right. Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!

9-11 Commission Covers Up Bush Family Ties


The fix is in, as the 9-11 Coverup Commmission continues to rewrite history -- protecting those responsible for the destruction of the World Trade Center Towers on September 11, 2001 and thereby opening the door to a never-ending Phoney War on Terrorism.

The 9-11 Cover-Up Commission is comprised of third tier Bushonian Shills, mostly lawyers as well as former bureaucrats and politicians, who know the conclusions they are expected to deliver.

Recent media reports claim that the commission's so-called investigations are further hindered by federal agencies' reluctance to provide documents and testimony as requested.

Stonewalling by Bushonian Shills inside the agencies will ensure that any potentially meaningful information will be delayed until the 9-11 Coverup Commission literally gives up its pointless exercise in futility.

To ensure that the 9-11 Coverup Commission projects an image of at least "trying," the commission’s chairman Thomas H. Kean, former Republican governor of New Jersey, publicly stated that the presence of so-called agency “minders" (or coaches) was the same as “intimidation” of witnesses called before the Commission.

Commission members themselves are equally suspect, since they are part of the same "clubs" with agendas which promote fraud, corruption and malfeasance under the guise of "think tanks."

For example, chairman Thomas Kean and vice-chairman Lee H. Hamilton, a former Democratic congressman from Indiana, are both members of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), described by political analyst Al Martin as the "steering committee for the most lucrative high level frauds" in America.

Commission members Jamie Gorelick and Philip Zelikow, its executive director, are also members of the CFR. In addition, Zelikow is a member of the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS).

Many facts of Bush Cabal complicity will be ignored by the 9-11 Coverup Commission, as it is understood that the "work" of the Commission is only for public consumption, while privately members understand that their task is simply to put up a pretense of "investigation."

Bush Family business relationships with WTC will also not be explored. According to Online Journal columnist Margie Burns, "a brother of George W. Bush was connected to at least three companies that did business with the WTC, although the White House has not mentioned that fact.

"HCC Insurance, formerly Houston Casualty Company, a multi-billion-dollar insurance holding company, was a World Trade Center insurance carrier for years," she writes. "Marvin P. Bush, George W.'s youngest brother, joined HCC's Board of Directors in 1999, remaining until November 2002.

Ironically, a company called Stratesec (formerly Securacom) was a security contractor with the WTC from 1996 to 2001, and Brother

Marvin Bush was a director at Stratesec from 1993 to 2000.

Stratesec, in turn, was backed by a private Washington, DC, investment firm, the Kuwait-American Corporation (KuwAm), linked to the Bush family since the Gulf War.

According to Burns, "This secrecy extends to Marvin Bush's SEC filings. The April 23, 1999, proxy statement for Stratesec does not mention Marvin Bush's connections to HCC. The April 28, 1999, proxy statement for HCC does not mention his directorship at Stratesec.

Thus Marvin Bush was elected to two boards on May 20 and May 25, 1999, each with a major interest in the World Trade Center, but neither proxy filing mentions the other."

Burns concludes that "one effect of the nondisclosure was that shareholders at Stratesec were not told of Marvin Bush's connection with HCC, a huge insurance company with easily the leverage to force other companies off the WTC project."

The question for the 9-11 Commission should be -- why is the White House preventing a full investigation of security at the WTC?

In addition, there are plenty of Bush Cabalists on the 9-11 Coverup Commission, and they can be counted on to come up with the "correct" conclusions. For instance, Commission spokesman Alvin Felzenberg and commission member Fred Fielding both served on the Bush Transition Team in 2001.

Also Felzenberg was executive director of the President's Commission on the Federal Appointments Process.

One of the most important issues is Chairman Thomas Kean's connections

whose so-called "business" background has not come under any Mainstream Media Cartel scrutiny.

New York Newsday's Thomas Frank, in his December 17 article, mentioned that Kean is a director of Aramark, a food-services corporation with "business interests" in Saudi Arabia. There was no more information and no more context.

It should be noted that Kean is also a director at petroleum company Amerada Hess.

The Hess family is a partner in Hess-Delta, an oil exploration and development joint venture incorporated in the Cayman Islands.

Hess-Delta is also involved in investments in the Caspian Sea region,namely Azerbaijan and other former Soviet republics.

Hess's partner in this joint venture is Delta Oil of Saudi Arabia

It just so happness that the new 9-11 Commission chair Tom Kean's business partners in Hess-Delta are Mohammed Hussein al Amoudi and Khalid bin Mahfouz, both of whom have been under investigation as far back as 1999 for suspected ties to Al Qaeda (Boston Herald, 12/11/2001).

Al Amoudi and bin Mahfouz have many other oil interests in Saudi Arabia, one of which is Delta. Both men have been accused by name in a trillion lawsuit, filed on behalf of families of the victims of September 11, as alleged financiers of Al Qaeda.

Where have we heard that name before?

Khalid bin Mahfouz, head of Saudi Arabia's powerful National Commercial Bank, was implicated in the BCCI banking scandal during the early 1990s, when the Bank of Commerce and Credit International robbed depositors of billion. Eventually bin Mahfouz paid a 5 million settlement in the BCCI case.

Then it seems that bin Mahfouz moved from international scamster to bankrolling "terrorists" under the guise of funding "charitable organizations."

In 1999, bin Mahfouz was reportedly placed under house arrest by the Saudi government on suspicion of supporting terrorism. An audit of his National Commerce Bank discovered billion dollars missing, and US and Saudi officials feared it was funneled to Al Qaeda via numerous charity fronts.

One of the "charities" to which bin Mahfouz may have "contributed" heavily, the Advice and Reformation Committee, was founded by Osama bin Laden himself and financed the 1998 African embassy bombings.

US officials also suspect bin Mahfouz to be financially linked to the USS Cole attack, the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, and numerous failed terrorist actions.

Bin Mahfouz's son was on the board of the Sudanese chapter of Blessed Relief, a charity whose assets were frozen by the Treasury Department in October 2001 for suspected terrorist links. (Ottawa Citizen, 9/29/2001)

Not to be forgotten is the fact that bin Mahfouz is Osama bin Laden's brother-in-law.

According to Senate testimony given by former CIA director James Woolsey, bin Mahfouz's younger sister is one of bin Laden's many brides. (New York Times, 11/12/2001)

And Tom Kean, as head of the 9-11 Coverup Commission, is supposed to reveal this, including his own Oily-Saudi Connections? Don't bet on it.

Of course George Bush Jr. has a role in this sordid history as well.

When Bush started up the Houston-based Arbusto Energy in 1979, one of his investors was James Bath, the US business representative of Salem bin Laden—brother of Osama. Many suspect Bath's ,000 investment came directly from Salem.

Following Salem bin Laden's very suspicious death in 1988, his Houston-based interests were absorbed by Khalid bin Mahfouz.

Bush became embroiled in the BCCI scandal, when investigations into the bank's finances revealed that many of the indicted BCCI executives also invested heavily in Harken Energy, a successor corporation to Bush's Arbusto.

Lying as always, Bush denied any knowledge of the BCCI investment.

Bin Mahfouz, a BCCI principal, was implicated in the fraud, though not directly connected to Bush's company.

Then in December 1997, the London Telegraph reported that Taliban representatives were about to sign a deal with Unocal, the California-based oil company, to construct a pipeline across Afghanistan.

Bin Mahfouz's Delta Oil was also heavily involved in the negotiations, and acted as a liaison between the Taliban and Unocal.

At the same time, Ken Lay, the founder and former chairman of Enron and a major Bush campaign contributor, was contracted to conduct feasibility studies for the Unocal-Delta joint venture.

Unocal publicly urged the Clinton administration to recognize the Taliban, despite Osama bin Laden's presence in the country it controlled.

Clinton never agreed to the deal and the Afghan pipeline project stayed in limbo for many years.

Then as recently as January 2001, the Bush administration was still meeting with Taliban representatives to work out an oil deal. They even invited the Taliban to Texas for a Texas-style BBQ. But evidently the Bush Cabal didn't want to offer enough cash for the Taliban's offshore accounts and no deal was made.

There is no evidence that Delta (and bin Mahfouz) had relinquished its interest in the Afghan pipeline by this time.

Shortly after the fall of the Taliban, Bush installed Hamid Karzai, a former Unocal "consultant" (read "bagman") as president of Afghanistan.

Zalmay Khalilzad, late of Unocal and a former Taliban supporter, was appointed as the US special envoy to the country.

Assuming the Unocal-Delta joint venture still exists, Bush has as much of a link to terrorism, as the man he appointed to head the 9-11 Coverup Commission.

Rest assured, however, Thomas Kean will do the Bush Cabal's bidding and keep it all covered up.

More public testimony by Bushonian Shills can be expected by the 9-11 Coverup Commission. In the July 9 session called, “Terrorism, Al Qaeda, and the Muslim World,” author Steven Emerson was trotted out as a so-called terrorism expert.

As a consultant for FoxNews, Emerson can always be relied on to deliver an anti-Muslim rant, and he did not disappoint his handlers reinforcing the Official Government Conspiracy Theory that "a bunch of ragheads drove the plane into the World Trade Center. There will be no more questions.Case closed."

And that is what can be expected from the 9-11 Coverup Commission --the Best Cover-up That Bush Cabal Money Can Buy.
