I already explained that Princess Haifa bint Faisal, wife of Saudi ambassador Bandar bin Sultan, acknowledged that she sent nearly $150,000 to the wife of a Saudi that ultimately reached two hijackers living in San Diego. Now, I did some research and I found this Washington Post article from July 17th. The main article focuses on Riggs Bank violating money-laundering laws, but further up in the article it cites a seperate FBI investigation. It turns out that Princess Haifa used Riggs Bank and withdrew money that possibly "benefited" (okay, bankrolled) the two Saudi hijackers--Khalid Almidhar and Nawaf Alhazmi. Guess who's the CEO? President Bush's uncle, Jonathan Bush.

And remember how I told you that the Saudis have invested trillions in the U.S. economy? About a year ago, "disgrunted Saudis" (synonym for Wahabi, obviously) pulled out $100 to $200 billion in private investments. I guess they missed out on Bush's elimination of tax dividends. What a shame.

Anyway, Greg Palast weighs in on this. He talks about how the bin Laden family helped out Dubya when he went bankrupt (yawn) but he makes a more important note: Dubya covered for the al-Qaeda fundraising bastards in Falls Church, Virgina. Better known as Abdullah bin Laden and his puppet-charity "WAMY." Yes, and the liberal media is all over this. (Sarcasm ends.)

UPDATE: Seems like the Senate is serious this time. So the Senate Governmental Affairs Committee wants a list of Saudis that have been investigated in terrorism-financing. And of course--no surprise here--the Treasury Department (isn't the FBI supposed to do this? Oh well) rejected the request. I think the Senators have to choose. Cheap oil or the truth. Two recommendations: 1) don't bitch about the list: I have it right here. 2) When you uncover the truth, address the stories about Saddam's non-existing love relationship with Osama bin Laden that was reported by tabloids conspiracy theorists in the White House.

Another inhumane attack on innocent civilians, Muslims and non-Muslims. This cannot be excused nor condoned. Remember what the Qu'ran says:

And slay not the life which Allah hath forbidden save with right. Whoso is slain wrongfully, We have given power unto his heir, but let him not commit excess in slaying. Lo! he will be helped.
Taking life because they find themselves in a Western hotel is inhumane and unacceptable. Lanat upon al-Qaeda. Islam will prevail.
