House of Bush, House of Saud

Craig Unger’s new book is the result of his investigations into the thirty year relationship between the Bush family and the al-Saud family. I’ve found it interesting that in the late 80’s and early 90’s the Bush coterie emphasized the importance of their relationship with the Saud’s and since 9-11 they’ve been denying that there’s any real substance to the relationship.

This book highlights the incident immediately after 9-11 where many members of bin Laden’s immediate family were allowed to leave the country without being questioned along with members of the Saud family. In what is promising to be a vicious election year, I’m surprisde that the media is making no effort to cover this story at all.

I would imagine that if Kerry (or Nader) had such a close relationship with a family that has been funding al Qaeda it would be front page news every single day. And if Kerry were smart he’d be asking questions about this constantly.
