9/11 Questions: What Did the Bush Family Know?

The Bush Clan

Now more than seven (7) years after the attacks on the World Trade Center of Sept. 11, 2001, it seems that we know less than we did then. The massive number of questions that have arisen continues to grow as the efforts of the Bush administration to portray anyone who questions the "19 Hijackers and a Cave Dweller" theory as a nut or worse, diminishes with Bush's departure from office.

Let's take a look at those questions and examine the actions and whereabouts of the Bush family on that fateful day.
I, personally, believe that Cheney and Papa Bush, along with their crew of Wolfowitz, Perle, Rumsfeld, Jeb, etc., knew well in advance of the planned attacks and carefully kept the loose cannon, George W, under careful watch. His vacation in August 2001 wasn’t a vacation, but a planning session to determine what to do about the impending terrorist attacks. Bush spent the month leading up to the attacks vacationing at his ranch in Crawford, Texas, under the watchful eye of Condoleeza Rice, hired prior to his son being elected by Papa Bush to keep an eye on W and make sure he didn't stray back to the darkness of substance abuse. It was important that W be kept out of the loop.

W's claim that he had been sober since 1986 when he had a religious experience and quit alcohol was disproven by his actions at a friend's wedding in 1992. This video of the event shows a boisterous Bush slurring his words and wisecracking:

There is another video taken shortly after the attacks in which W makes a careless admission.
We already know that George Bush and the truth seldom walk on the same side of the street as his lies continue to pile up ("we don't torture". However, it's the slips he made regarding the attacks that give credence to the conspiracy theories. On the morning of the attacks, nobody saw a video of the first plane hitting the WTC. It was the second plane that America watched as it crashed into the tower. But, not George Bush. He claims to have seen the first plane hit the tower while waiting in his limo prior to reading, "My Pet Goat" to young children in a Florida schoolroom. Unless he had some type of closed circuit television in his limo, that was impossible and contradicts Andrew Card, who advised him of the second plane hitting the buildings while our President was heavily involved in his interesting reading.

For instance, many people believe that the buildings could only have come down from bombs placed inside, rather from the almost laughable "aircraft fuel theory". No building before or since has ever come down from a fire or a plane hitting it. In fact, WTC 7 came down without being hit. In that case, however, we KNOW that this building was brought down by a controlled demolition. The term used when demolishing a building is to "pull it". Here is WTC 7 Leaseholder, Larry Silverstein, admitting that fact.

Bush also carelessly gave away some facts that the media has conveniently ignored,
the most damaging of which occurred in a statement he made on Sept. 15, 2006:

"For example, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed described the design of planned attacks of buildings inside the U.S. and how operatives were directed to carry them out. That is valuable information for those of us who have the responsibility to protect the American people. He told us the operatives had been instructed to ensure that the explosives went off at a high -- a point that was high enough to prevent people trapped above from escaping." This is an incredible admission.

Click to hear the audio of him saying exactly this.


But what about the other Bushes? We know that Jeb was babysitting the President in Florida but he did something on Sept. 7, 2001, that is very revealing. Just one business day before the WTC attacks, Jeb declared Martial Law in Florida. As part of this coordinated effort, Jeb Bush issued an executive order supposedly to encourage Florida’s children to read. This executive order (#01-260) was issued and announced to the public on September 7, 2001. The same day but without the fanfare, Governor Jeb Bush issued a second executive order which gave authority to the Florida National Guard to activate its membership. Among the reasons cited in the document for the action was “potential massive damage to life and property that may result from an act of terrorism” (Executive Order #01-261, Section 3). What did he know?


"We have before us the opportunity to forge for ourselves and for future generations a New World Order, a world where the rule of law, not the rule of the jungle, governs the conduct of nations. When we are successful, and we will be, we have a real chance at this new world order, an order in which a credible United Nations can use its peacekeeping role to fulfill the promise and vision of the U.N.'s founders." 
- President George H.W. Bush 1991

TEN YEARS LATER TO THE DATE, SEPTEMBER 11, 2001, terrorist hits on the United States were used to start a pre-emptive Afghanistan invasion (troops were already in the area waiting, pre-9-11-01), and later used to frame the "Second Gulf War" attack on Iraq to complete the first. The decimation of the U.S. Bill of Rights (suspended under the Patriot Act) was unconstitutionally passed in the face of DOMESTIC TERROR THREATS, specifically, domestic military grade anthrax linked to Ft. Detrick, Maryland. Only Bush's Cabinet was on the anthrax-specific drug Cipro, a month before the domestic anthrax attacks. 

Not to be outdone, Papa Bush also served an important role on September 11. While planes (or missiles) slammed into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, George W. Bush's father and the Carlyle Group hosted a conference at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Washington, D.C. Among the guests of honor was a valued investor: Shafig bin Laden, brother of Osama, along with 15 other members of the bin Laden family. They were on Carlyle Group business just a few miles from where hijackers supposedly acting on behalf of Osama bin Laden would fly a plane into the Pentagon (or so the story goes). The chief financier of the so-called hijackers, Pakistan's Chief Spy General Mahmoud Ahmad, was meeting with Bush administration officials the week before 9/11.

This is confirmed by an article in a prominent Indian newspaper reporting that the hijacker mastermind of 9-11, Mohammed Atta, had been wired $100,000.00 by the head of Pakistani Intelligence weeks before 9-11, who oddly enough was in Washington meeting with top Bush Administration officials on 9-11-2001. He also met with Bob Graham and Porter Goss on the morning of the attacks, who would later go on to head the first 9/11 investigative committee.
The Bush senior/bin Laden meeting was reported on by CBC.

All 15 members of the bin Laden family were allowed to fly out of the United States without being interviewed by the FBI, despite a ban on all air traffic.


As we revealed in an earlier post, Marvin Bush, the unknown brother, was a partner in the firm hired to be in charge of security at the World Trade Center and Dulles Airport. How convenient.


Deep Affection

Osama bin Laden's older brother Salem, once head of the wealthy Saudi family clan, was a former business associate of George W. Bush. Salem bin Laden, one of 57 children their father Mohammed sired with his 12 wives, and Bush were founders of the Arbusto Energy oil company in Texas. He died in a plane crash in 1988, but not before the Arbusto Energy Oil Company, founded in 1978, had become hugely successful.

The bin Laden brothers inherited a fortune from their construction magnate father. He left millions to each of his many, many children after dying in an air crash in 1968. Salem put a large part of his money into business ventures, including Arbusto Energy. At the time, Bush was not long out of Harvard Business School. As he built his business empire, Salem Bin Laden had an intriguing relationship with Bush. In 1978, he appointed James Bath, a close friend of Bush who “served” with him in the Air National Guard, as his representative in Houston, Texas. It was in that year that Bath invested $70,000 in Bush's company, Arbusto. It was never revealed whether he was investing his own money or Salem's. The same year, Bath bought Houston Gulf Airport on behalf of the Saudi Arabian multi-millionaire.

Salem was the head of the bin Laden family as the oldest of all the brothers and sisters, and a man with a powerful presence. The FBI in Boston has long been aware of bin Laden's extended family and began monitoring their activities after the 1998 terrorist bombings of U.S. embassies in Africa.

  1. With regard to 9/11 we can believe our own senses, or we can believe Bush/Cheney.

    Maybe Jesus walked on water (or maybe not) but Newton's laws of physics usually are pretty dependable.

  2. The Bush family has always been suspect. Their fortune was founded in treachery and their political success was based on treason. Only a party without an ounce of morals, ethics or simple decency would ever enlist and put forth the candidacy of such people for high office in the US. We all now know that the GOP are that party and the rest of the story is well known to our great misfortune.
