Bush Bin Laden Bonanza
Bush's Steal Billions of Dollars :
Bush Admits to Receiving Pre-release of Terrorist Propaganda
George W. Bush, speaking about the CIA public relations exercise promoting the Bush spokesman Osama Bin Laden stated in Sidney on Sep 8, 2007: "I found it interested that on the tape Iraq was mentioned, which is a reminder that Iraq is part of the war against extremists. If al-Qaida bothers to mention Iraq, it's because they want to achieve their objectives in Iraq, which is to drive us out" source: http://www.voanews.com/english/2007-09-08-voa2.cfm
Since when does the U.S. gear up to promote a 'terrorist announcement'? Recognize the terrorist spin doctors are our own government lead by the judicially appointed president Bush. The evidence is irrefutable, Bush/Cheney, the CIA, FBI and FEMA planned, orchestrated and carried out the 9/11 attacks: See 9/11 & Pearl Harbor; 9/11 Demolition; Gov Empl. "911 Inside Job"; Experts/Officials - Inside Job - Bush here is clearly marketing Bin Laden.
Big 5 media owners and CIA gears up announcement from G.W. Bush spokesman, Osama Bin Laden: Sep. 10, 2007 Craig Crawford’s Trail Mix: Bin Laden Boosts Bush Again “..the political effect of bin Laden’s rare appearances on video these past few years suggest that he and Bush have two things in common: Keeping the president in office and keeping U.S. troops in Iraq.”
Bush in his statement made on Sep 8, 2007, clearly claimed to have
already seen the video so did other web sites. The question we must ask is
how come major media ramped up to release the video on 9/11 when it was
already out there?
However, as in the last so-called Osama tape, this tape is also being
declared by experts as yet another poor forgery. See: http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/september2007/100907_b_Expert.htm http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/national/dotmil/arkin020199.htm;
This further blatant deception, can only be weighed up against any individual's belief that the Bankster/Bush government was not intimately involved in the 9/11 attacks and the utterly unrelated invasion of Iraq. See 9/11 & Pearl Harbor; 9/11 Demolition; Gov Empl. "911 Inside Job"; Experts/Officials - Inside Job
NOTE: Osama Bin Laden was an arch enemy of Saddam Hussein. Prior to the illegal violent terrorist act by the U.S. in the invasion of Iraq, Al Quaeda and Osama Bin Laden had no influence in Iraq. Bush and his Banksters clearly orchestrated this Osama Bin Laden 'terrorist threat' to justify their war, however, there never was any Iraqi link.
When Hussein started selling his oil in Euro's instead of the privately held Federal Reserve Bank's dollar notes, prompting the invasion of Iraq, the share holders of the Federal Reserve Bank immediately lost billions of dollars in profits. When Oil is sold in Federal Reserve Bank (FRB) dollar notes, the buyer first has to buy dollar bills from the FRB. Profit from the sale of the dollar bills goes directly to the owners of the FRB, the U.S. public gains absolutely nothing. The largest share holder of the FRB are the Rothschild's.

Salem Bin Laden and Khalid bin Mahfouz bail out George W. Bush's Company Harken
1988: Bin Ladens Bail Out George W. Bush: Prior to this year, President George W. Bush is a failed oilman. Three times, friends and investors have bailed him out to keep his business from going bankrupt. However, in 1988, the same year his father becomes president, some Saudis buy a portion of his small company, Harken, which has never performed work outside of Texas. Later in the year, Harken wins a contract in the Persian Gulf and starts doing well financially. These transactions seem so suspicious that the Wall Street Journal in 1991 states it “raises the question of ... an effort to cozy up to a presidential son.” Two major investors in Bush’s company during this time are Salem bin Laden and Khalid bin Mahfouz. [Salon, 11/19/2001; Intelligence Newsletter, 3/2/2000] Salem bin Laden is Osama’s oldest brother; Khalid bin Mahfouz is a Saudi banker with a 20 percent stake in BCCI. The bank will be shut down a few years later and bin Mahfouz will have to pay a $225 million fine (while admitting no wrongdoing) (see October 2001)). [Forbes, 3/18/2002]

Bush Family Attorneys Run Terrorists Escrow Account
Texas: Prosecutors applied the label of "un-indicted co-conspirator" to the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the Islamic Society of North America, and the North American Islamic Trust in connection with a July trial in Texas for five officials of a defunct charity, the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development.
US Prosecutors accused American Islamic Groups Named of funding Hamas Terrorists, Holy Land Foundation (HLF), the Council on Arab Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT). The Director of CAIR, Nihad Awad, is on trial with other HLF defendants and has been directly connected by FBI testimony as working for Hamas terrorists and Sami Al Arian. Nihad Awad got together with George W. Bush when Bush was governor of Texas.
Bush family attorneys, Akin and Gump, ran the escrow account for "Holy Land Foundation" (HLF). Wealthy Saudi billionaire banker, Khalid Mahfouz, was a HLF board member and financed the Bushes in Arbusto and Harken energy. Even though MSNBC has reported that Khalid Mahfouz Continues AlQaeda & Hamas Funding for Saudis, Mahfouz has aggressively used British lawsuits to sue US book authors Rachel Erhenfeld (Funding Evil) and Robert Collins and J. Millard Burr (Alms for Jihad) who have written about Mahfouz ties to Hamas and Muslim terror funding. Mahfouz protestations of innocence in England’s liberal courts are seriously brought into question by a September 13, 2001 report by France's foreign intelligence agency, revealing that Bin Mahfouz was known to be one of the architects of a banking scheme constructed for the benefit of AlQaeda’s Osama bin Laden. The report also claims that both U.S. and British intelligence services had knowledge of this. See Legal Terror: Bush Backer MAHFOUZ Sues to Destroy Two Books Exposing Muslim Terror Funding.
On March 18, 2003 NBC Nightly News carried a lengthy report about the head of one of Saudi Arabia's largest banks, Khalid Bin Mahfouz. NBC reported that Mafhouz was continuing to transfer large amounts of funds from Saudi Arabia to AlQaeda. Khalid Mahfouz is known to have transferred funds to Hamas and the PLO to help suicide bombers and their families in Israel. Khalid Mahfouz is known to have provided funds for the bombing of the USS Cole. Khalid Mahfouz is known to have provided funding for the suicide hijackers involved in 9/11 according to a trillion dollar lawsuit filed by the families of the victims of 9/11. Khalid Mahfouz is closely aligned with Bin Laden family interests around the world and in the US at one time directly through Holy Land foundation and InfoCom in Dallas.
The Chairman of the 9/11 Commission, Republican Governor, Tom Keene of New Jersey, has had long time business and campaign ties to Khalid Mahfouz.
President G. W. Bush was financially backed at Harken Energy by Khalid Mahfouz. Bush attorneys at Adkin and Gump represented Khalid Mhafouz and InfoCom and HolyLand Foundation in Dallas.
USF Professor AlArian had ties to Bin Laden, Holy land and Khalid Mahfouz for over a decade and met with G. W. Bush even when Bush was warned not to meet with AlArian.
In early 2001 G. W. Bush ordered the FBI to back off investigating Bin Laden business operations in the US being run at InfoCom and HolyLand Foundation. The records of HolyLand and InfoCom were seized in a raid on Sept 5, 2001 just before the 9/11 attacks. The records that implicate Mahfouz, Bin Laden, AlArian and Bush direct ties have been withheld from a Federal Grand Jury investigating InfoCom.
Censorship in the U.S.: Cambridge University Press destroyed all unsold copies of the 2006 book, "Alms for Jihad," by American authors Robert Collins and J. Millard Burr which implicated Mahfouz. The 'burning of books' is very similar to Hitler's actions, so is Bush's creation of Homeland Security, the Patriot Act, the Military Commissions Act and the construction of Concentration Camps throughout the U.S. See Bushes to read about the directt Bush/Nazi connections.
Questions Linger About Bushes and BCCI

Thursday 05 April 2007
New York - Now that the U.S. Congress is investigating the truth of President George W. Bush's statements about the Iraq war, they might look into one of his most startling assertions: that there was a link between Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden.
Critics dismissed that as an invention. They were wrong. There was a link, but not the one Bush was selling. The link between Hussein and Bin Laden was their banker, BCCI. But the link went beyond the dictator and the jihadist - it passed through Saudi Arabia and stretched all the way to George W. Bush and his father.
BCCI was the Bank of Credit and Commerce International, a dirty offshore bank that then-president Ronald Reagan's Central Intelligence Agency used to run guns to Hussein, finance Osama bin Laden, move money in the illegal Iran-Contra operation and carry out other "agency" black ops. The Bushes also benefited privately; one of the bank's largest Saudi investors helped bail out George W. Bush's troubled oil investments.
BCCI was founded in 1972 by a Pakistani banker, Agha Hasan Abedi, with the support of Sheik Zayed bin Sultan al Nahyan, ruler of Abu Dhabi and head of the United Arab Emirates. Its corporate strategy was money laundering. It became the banker for drug and arms traffickers, corrupt officials, financial fraudsters, dictators and terrorists.
The CIA used BCCI Islamabad and other branches in Pakistan to funnel some of the two billion dollars that Washington sent to Osama bin Laden's Mujahadeen to help fight the Soviets in Afghanistan. It moved the cash the Pakistani military and government officials skimmed from U.S. aid to the Mujahadeen. It also moved money as required by the Saudi intelligence services.
The BCCI operation gave Osama bin Laden an education in offshore black finance that he would put to use when he organised the jihad against the United States. He would move money through the Al-Taqwa Bank, operating in offshore Nassau and Switzerland with two Osama siblings as shareholders.
At the same time, BCCI helped Saddam Hussein, funneling millions of dollars to the Atlanta branch of the Italian government-owned Banca Nazionale del Lavoro (BNL), Baghdad's U.S. banker, so that from 1985 to 1989 it could make four billion dollars in secret loans to Iraq to help it buy arms.
U.S. Congressman Henry Gonzalez held a hearing on BNL in 1992 during which he quoted from a confidential CIA document that said the agency had long been aware that the bank's headquarters was involved in the U.S. branch's Iraqi loans.
Kickbacks from 15 percent commissions on BNL-sponsored loans were channeled into bank accounts held for Iraqi leaders via BCCI offices in the Caymans as well as in offshore Luxembourg and Switzerland. BNL was a client of Kissinger Associates, and Henry Kissinger was on the bank's international advisory board, along with Brent Scowcroft, who would become George Bush Sr.'s national security advisor. That connection makes the Bush administration's surprise and indignation at "oil for food" payoffs in Iraq seem disingenuous.
Important Saudis were influential in the bank. Sheik Kamal Adham, brother-in-law of the late Saudi King Faisal, head of Saudi intelligence from 1963 to 1979, and the CIA's liaison in the area, became one of BCCI's largest shareholders. George Bush Sr. knew Adham from his time running the CIA in 1975.
Another investor was Prince Turki bin Faisal al-Saud, who succeeded Adham as Saudi intelligence chief. The family of Khalid Salem bin Mahfouz, owner of the National Commercial Bank, the largest bank in Saudi Arabia, banker to King Fahd and other members of the ruling family, bought 20 to 30 percent of the stock for nearly one billion dollars. Bin Mahfouz was put on the board of directors.
The Arabs' interest in the bank was more than financial. A classified CIA memo on BCCI in the mid-1980s said that "its principal shareholders are among the power elite of the Middle East, including the rulers of Dubai and the United Arab Emirates, and several influential Saudi Arabians. They are less interested in profitability than in promoting the Muslim cause."
The Bushes' private links to the bank passed to Bin Mahfouz through Texas businessman James R. Bath, who invested money in the United States on behalf of the Saudi regime. In 1976, when Bush was the head of the CIA, the agency sold some of the planes of Air America, a secret "proprietary" airline it used during the Vietnam War, to Skyway, a company owned by Bath and Bin Mahfouz. Bath then helped finance George W. Bush's oil company, Arbusto Energy Inc., in 1979 and 1980.
When Harken Energy Corp., which had absorbed Arbusto (by then merged with Spectrum 7 Energy), got into financial trouble in 1987, Jackson Stephens of the powerful, politically-connected Arkansas investment firm helped it secure 25 million dollars in financing from the Union Bank of Switzerland. As part of that deal, a place on the board was given to Harken shareholder Sheik Abdullah Taha Bakhsh, whose chief banker was BCCI shareholder Bin Mahfouz.
Then, in 1988, George Bush Sr. was elected president. Harken benefited by getting some new investors, including Salem bin Laden, Osama bin Laden's half-brother, and Khalid bin Mahfouz. Osama bin Laden himself was busy elsewhere at the time - organising al Qaeda.
The money BCCI stole before it was shut down in 1991 - somewhere between 9.5 billion and 15 billion dollars - made its 20-year heist the biggest bank fraud in history. Most of it was never recovered. International banks' complicity in the offshore secrecy system effectively covered up the money trail.
But in the years after the collapse of BCCI, Khalid bin Mahfouz was still flush with cash. In 1992, he established the Muwafaq ("blessed relief") Foundation in the offshore Channel Islands. The U.S. Treasury Department called it "an al Qaeda front that receives funding from wealthy Saudi businessmen."
When the BCCI scandal began to break in the late 1980s, the Sr. Bush administration did what it could to sit on it. The Justice Department went after the culprits - was virtually forced to - only after New York District Attorney Robert Morgenthau did. But evidence about BCCI's broader links exist in numerous U.S. and international investigations. Now could be a good time to take another look at the BCCI-Osama-Saddam-Saudi-Bush connection.
Investigative journalist Lucy Komisar's chapter, "The BCCI Game: Banking on America, Banking on Jihad," appears in the new book A Game as Old as Empire, just published by Berrett-Koehler (San Francisco).
