WAKING UP FROM OUR GLOBAL NIGHTMARE By Wayne Madsen Osama bin Laden is still a cherished member of the same family that has engaged in joint business activities for two generations with George H. W. Bush, George W. Bush, Marvin Bush, Neil Bush, Jeb Bush, and Bush family consigliore James Baker and BushÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s multibillion dollar slush fund activity, The Carlyle Group, gives his recent videotaped commentary on the U.S. presidential election more weight. Osama Bin Laden always comes to the rescue of George W. Bush when the chips are down. In August 2001, Bush was sinking in the polls amid continuing charges that his presidency was an illegal contrivance engineered by his brother in Florida, FloridaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Secretary of State Katherine Harris, and five partisan members of the U.S. Supreme Court. Then, like a true and trusted business partner, Bin Laden delivered the 911 attacks while Bush was being read book excerpts about a pet goat in a Florida elementary school. Like two friendly business chums cracking jokes on the golf course, Bin Laden chided Bush about the pet goat story in his recent videotape. Bin Laden, whose family was aided by the BushÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s during the 1970s and 1980s in acquiring airports, aircraft, secret bank accounts, front companies, and real estate throughout Texas for the purpose of weapons smuggling and money laundering, came through for Bush by launching the very kind of Ã¢â‚¬Å“Pearl Harbor-levelÃ¢â‚¬ attack called for by BushÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s ideological allies serving with the Israeli-Russian Mafia-funded Project for the New American Century (PNAC). Bin Laden financial help to BushÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s various failed oil ventures, including Arbusto, Spectrum 7 and Harken totaled $1 million over the years. Dick Cheney, whose wife Lynne receives Israeli-Russian Mafia funds to support her $125,000 chair at the American Enterprise Institute, immediately used the 911 attacks to consolidate the Bush regimeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s hold on power, generate windfall war profits for his old company Halliburton and take the nationÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s attention of the biggest corporate collapse in the history of the United States -- the Enron implosion. BushÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s friends and partners in the United Arab Emirates arranged for $109,500 to be transferred to the joint Sun Trust Bank account in Florida used by hijackers Mohammed Atta and Marwan al Shehhi. Florida Governor Jeb Bush has extensive personal financial ties to Sun Trust. The wire transfer originated in Dubai and was transferred through Citibank in New York. Treasury Secretary Paul OÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Neill privately complained to the Emirates during a March 2002 visit to Dubai about the use of Dubai by the Al Qaeda terrorists prior to and after the 911 attacks. For example, hijacker Ziad Jarrah transited Dubai in January 2001 on his return to Florida after spending time at Al Qaeda training camps in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Hijackers Wail and and Waleed al Shehri, who were brothers, arranged to use special phone cards in the United States that could only be used to call Dubai. OÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Neill crossed swords with the Bush-Bin Laden partnership when he renewed the aggressive approach to UAE and Saudi involvement with terrorist money laundering begun by ClintonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s National Security Adviser Sandy Berger. The Bush regime scrapped BergerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s policies after it took office but OÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Neill decided to take a hard line against the Saudis and Emiratis after 911. In December 2002, OÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Neill was fired. It was not because of his skepticism over BushÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s planned war against Iraq (we did not know about that until well after he was sacked), but it was OÃ¢â‚¬â„¢NeillÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s decision to shut down the financial activities of Al Qaeda and its allies that earned him the wrath of the Bush-Bin Laden partnership and what led to his ultimate firing. Obviously, his distaste for the Iraqi invasion also did not endear OÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Neill to the Israeli-Russian influenced neo-conservatives and PNACers. And Bush has done much for Osama. After 911, Bush sufficiently delayed an attack on Afghanistan enabling Bin Laden and his family and closest cohorts to evade the eventual attack. After the U.S. invaded, it allowed Bin Laden to escape Tora Bora by using former Bin Laden-allied local warlords to supposedly try to capture him. Bush, in essence, allowed Bin Laden and his party to escape. After Bush geared up to attack IraqÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Saddam Hussein, Bush publicly stated that he did not care about Osama any longer. Until October 2004 when polls showed Kerry surging ahead. Bingo! -- Osama cuts a videotape on his view of the presidential election. Walter Cronkite and I share the belief that this video was engineered by Karl Rove. Beyond that fact, the video was yet another example of the teamwork between the Bush and Bin Laden partners when one or the other partner is threatened in some manner. Immediately, PNAC adherent former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, who has made handsome profits in the security business as a result of 911, began making statements that Bin Laden was parroting allegations contained in Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 911." It was that film that introduced many Americans for the first time to the business relationship between the Bushes and Bin Ladens. Osama's video was used by Bush's people to discredit Moore, and thus, the John Kerry campaign. When I arrived at the UN Building in the late afternoon of October 29, a group of staffers were having a small Halloween party but were also transfixed on a television airing the video of Bin Laden. Eerily, I had just left a meeting in midtown Manhattan with a colleague who told me that Bin Laden was receiving kidney treatment in Qatar, which hosts a major U.S. military base where Saddam Hussein was once imprisoned. Then, bam!--Bin Laden is on TV broadcasting from what was deemed by a number of TV technicians to be a professional studio. Then the tape ends up in the hands of Al Jazeera, which is also based in Qatar. Walter Cronkite smelled a Karl Rove rat with that tape and so do I. It is a continuation of past Bush-Bin Laden teamwork in matters of making tons of money and bringing about global mayhem -- all for the bottom line. In July 2001, just weeks prior to 911, the French media reported that Osama Bin Laden was in hospital at the American Hospital in -- you guessed it -- Dubai, where he was receiving kidney treatment. The French media also reported that a rather dodgy local American named Larry Mitchell, who was attached to the U.S. Consulate General and said to be the CIA station chief, visited Bin Laden at the hospital. More evidence of the Bush-Bin Laden team in action. On November 2, we must put and end to the most damaging and menacing administration in the history of our republic. The sinister Bush family and their bastard operatives are the most dangerous collection of demagogues and hate mongers to have achieved power since the days of Adolf Hitler and the Nazis. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s time for them to go. Let a Kerry administration begin the process of indicting the Bush-Bin Laden cartel criminals for their treacherous acts against our nation. Let there be no mercy, pardons, or clemency for these truly evil people.
