Clipping from my comment on A's previous post:
When Bush accuses Bin Laden of attacking the USA, and then deports all the Bin Laden's in the USA quietly to France the day after the attack, I am forced to question his statements on some level.

How do the other fellas interpret the deportation of Bin Ladens from the USA? Are you all HAPPY that Bush was so courteous that those people are allowed to fly out of the country IMMEDIATELY following a (supposed) terrorist attack by their brother ** BEFORE they could be debriefed by CIA/FBI ** ?

For two years, this violation of the air ban is denied by the FAA, FBI, and White House, and decried as an urban legend except for one article detailing them in a Tampa newspaper. [Tampa Tribune, 10/5/2001] Finally, in 2003, counterterrorism “tsar” Richard Clarke confirms the existence of these flights, and Secretary of State Powell confirms them as well. [MSNBC, 9/7/2003; Vanity Fair, 10/2003] However, the White House remains silent on the matter. [New York Times, 9/4/2003] Officials at the Tampa International Airport finally confirm this first flight in 2004.

While serving as governor of Texas, George W. Bush met with high-level Al Qaeda leaders, hoping to get support to build a pipeline across Afghanistan. Four months into his presidency, he [Bush] rewarded the Taliban by handing over $43 million in May 2001, only six months before the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Seems pretty ugly to me. I mean, Bush gave the Taliban millions in contracts, but I'm not getting free health care? What's going on?!?!?!

I'm interested to hear the non-conspiracy theory people's views on these events? Did they not happen, or were these just insignficant events that hit the 'muckrackers' radars? Do you all think Bush is innocent of this corruption & double dealing? Is the Saudi/Bush connection being overplayed by Left-Wing media?

From those FOX-news-loving bastard NEOCONS at Snopes -- they probably don't even have UNDERGRAD HISTORY DEGREES [/mock]:

The claim that bin Laden family members (and other Saudis) were allowed to secretly fly out of the U.S. and back to Saudi Arabia while a government-imposed ban on air travel was in effect, all without any intervention by the FBI, has since been negated by the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States (also known as the "9/11 Commission").

Snopes? Erik, you're citing snopes? That's a 5th column multi-national neoKKKon, Bush-Stole-The-Election, Cheney-Shot-Down-United-93, High Salaried CEO, Free-Parking Denying KKKover-up mouthpiece, which you'd know if you went to UCSD.

What criminal wage did you pay your illegal gardener to write that for you, you resource-hogging fascist? Go inject your dog with hormones and leave the critical thinking to us priveleged people whose eyes have been OPENED to the horrific OPPRESSION visited upon us by this unjust MONARCHY.

Well, I may not be providing education, but I guess we could call this edutainment?

Um, disputing that the Bin Ladens flew out is a new tactic.

According to this article, Richard Clarke approved it w/o talking to Bush.

Seems pretty unlikely to me... but it's good for the ol' 'plausible deniability' defense.
