Assistance to the bin Laden family


No, they didn't leave the country while the flight ban was in effect. But some 140 Saudis, including two dozen members of Osama bin Laden's own family, were allowed to fly domestically by private jet on September 13 to regroup and then fly out of the country once the FAA reinstated overseas flights.

This movement had to have been authorized by the White House and these people were never properly questioned.

It stinks, but I don't think it necessarily stinks of conspiracy. To me, it mainly stinks of money and favors. These are friends of all the oil people in the Bush administration, and they were not going to be popular here. So he helps them get out.

It stinks vis-a-vis 9/11 mainly because some of these people should have been thoroughly questioned since they had obvious connections to Osama bin Laden. Some people claim they were questioned, but it seems this was very superficial, under severe constraints "on the tarmac" as they were leaving. But since it can be explained by ordinary greed and corruption, even though it did hamper the investigation I can't count it as very suspicious as conspiracy fodder.

Bottom line, me, I give it:

not very suspicious
