Al Gore Event Funded by Bin Laden’s Family

Posted: February 14, 2006 in National, Politics

Fascinating stuff. One has to wonder what is happening to the Democrats, that they would lose so much sense in so little time.  Between Howard Dean, Teddy Kennedy and Algore, the Republicans almost do not have to do anything at all, but watch them self-destruct.

The Saudi Arabia seminar that was addressed by former Vice President Al Gore over the weekend in a speech that criticized the U.S. for being too tough on Arabs was sponsored, in part, by Osama bin Laden’s family.

On Saturday, the state-run Saudi news outlet Arab News reported that the Jeddah Economic Forum, where Gore spoke, was funded by “Saudi Arabian Airlines, the Saudi Binladin Group, Gulf One Investment Bank, Saudi Basic Industries Corp.” and an array of other big companies with ties to the Middle East.

The Saudi BinLadin Group – which is Saudi Arabia’s largest construction company – is run by Osama bin Laden’s brothers and cousins. Jeddah, the site of the forum attended by Gore, is Osama bin Laden’s hometown.

Although family members claim they’ve disowned bin Laden, his mother told reporters after the 9/11 attacks that she received advanced warning from him that something big was about to happen

    someone I know at work told me that on Sept 11th there was only one plane that had clearance to leave the county. That plane was Bin Ladens Family. The person I work with said that President Bush was the one to allow this. Does anyone know….. Is this true?
