    The bush family and the bin laden family have a long business history going back 100-150 years old, maybe longer. OBL had intelligence connections back during the afghan Russian conflict. Pm me if you have evidence to suggest that relationship had ended.

    Back to topic: war with Iran is BAD NEWS. Remember : "yellow cakes in iraq".
    I have a better idea, post evidence that UBL was connected to the CIA.

    Please post evidence of common knowledge shared by everyone? Do we have to tell you the sky is blue? Anyone in the government will tell you.

    You're one of the folks that suggested that 9/11 was an inside job.

    If you thought that was bad, you should hear the one about a President who took a country to war based of fake evidence about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Oh wait...that was the last Administration. My bad...

    Carry on.

    Bush was an absolute dumb*** and a crook to boot, but I still don't see how that makes what Obama has done any more excusable.

    Care to back that up?? Also, you DO know I hope that the bin Laden family had disowned Osama and the Saudi government revoked his passport in the 1990s...

    Gladly. Iran usually has a seriousness about them when they do assassinations. This horrid attempt at terrorism is "at odds with the level of skill associated with the Iranian Quds force." (Bizarre Responses to a Bizarre Plot | The National Interest Blog) In addition to this, terrorism always has a political side to it as well. For example, " Iran conducted assassinations in the 1980s and 1990s to eliminate expatriate Iranian dissidents." and "The terrorist operations in Argentina in the 1990s by its client Hezbollah were responses to specific Israeli acts in the Middle East." (Ibid) Iran does things for a clearly defined reason and doesn't fool around. This debacle contradicts what we have seen of them in the past, thus many are skeptical that the Iranian government was behind it.

    Gladly.

    As his unclassified CIA biography states, bin Laden left Saudi Arabia to fight the Soviet army in Afghanistan after Moscow’s invasion in 1979. By 1984, he was running a front organization known as Maktab al-Khidamar - the MAK - which funneled money, arms and fighters from the outside world into the Afghan war.
    What the CIA bio conveniently fails to specify (in its unclassified form, at least) is that the MAK 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.



    By no means was Osama bin Laden the leader of Afghanistan’s mujahedeen. His money gave him undue prominence in the Afghan struggle, but the vast majority of those who fought and died for Afghanistan’s freedom - like the Taliban regime that now holds sway over most of that tortured nation - were Afghan nationals.

    Yet the CIA, concerned about the factionalism of Afghanistan made famous by Rudyard Kipling, found that Arab zealots who flocked to aid the Afghans were easier to “read” than the rivalry-ridden natives. While the Arab volunteers might well prove troublesome later, the agency reasoned, they at least were one-dimensionally anti-Soviet for now. So bin Laden, along with a small group of Islamic militants from Egypt, Pakistan, Lebanon, Syria and Palestinian refugee camps all over the Middle East, became the “reliable” partners of the CIA in its war against Moscow.
    (emphasis added)
