The Scandal of U.S.- Saudi Relations

Reader comment on item: The Scandal of U.S.-Saudi Relations

Submitted by Lila Reisman (United States), Jan 12, 2003 at 15:44

I read this article with great interest as I have already been made aware of the very special relationship that has existed between the Bush Family and Saudi Princes. This article sets the issue into concrete form and I am not at all shocked at the thought that a monetary pay-off is part of the "romance" between the Saudis and our horrid members of Government here who bend to their wishes.

I also wondered if the reason Kissinger did not accept the appointment offered to him by Bush, Jr. was that he would be revealing his ties with the Muslim world, primarily with Saudi Arabia, when he was asked to disclose his business clients. He preferred
turning down the Chairmanship that was offered than revealing his profitable contacts.

There are records that support the happening back in Bush, Sr.'s administration when it was learned that Saudi Princes were money laundering in Florida and sending that "new" money to a U.S. headquarters that dealt with developing and supporting terrorist groups within the U.S. Bush, Sr. was made aware of this but asked that the FBI, the CIA and the Justice Department not pursue this any further. I also realized that it was during Bush, Sr.'s term of office that he built up Saddam Heussin and allowed the U.S. to supply him with various components of germ warfare and other such "goodies" of mass destruction so that Saddam could defeat Kaddafi. Now, what Bush, Sr sowed, we innocent U.S. citizens will be forced to reap.

Thank you for revealing the U.S. bedfellows and the prostitution conducted therein!
