Bush ties to bin Laden haunt grim anniversary - The Denver Post
Sure. What a surprise is it that apdst of all people has not only compared white nationalists to this woman - who we have NO EVIDENCE of ever having been a member of the Muslim brotherhood but he's also made the argument that Muslims as a whole should be investigated because of 9/11. I guess it's more of the false pretence he likes to show off regularly. Any minute now, he'll be telling us all how he's a black Muslim born in Cairo so any positions of his that are attacked are just hate on his Conservative values and not his blatantly ridiculous comparisons.In 1978, Bush and Osama bin Laden's brother, Salem bin Laden, founded Arbusto Energy, an oil company based in Texas.
Interestingly, on Sept. 11, 2001, members of the Carlyle Group - including Bush senior, and his former secretary of state, James Baker - were meeting at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Washington, D.C., along with Shafiq bin Laden, another one of Osama bin Laden's brothers.
While all flights were halted following the terrorist attacks, there was one exception made: The White House authorized planes to pick up 140 Saudi nationals, including 24 members of the bin Laden family, living in various cities in the U.S. to bring them back to Saudi Arabia, where they would be safe. They were never interrogated.

I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
