Thursday, July 01, 2004 has a critical look at F911's ties between Bush, oil, Afghanistan, and Saudi Arabia.

To summarize, the $1.4 billion that the Bush family is supposed to have gotten from the Saudis was through the Carlyle Group. What Moore does not tell you is that, 1) 90% of the money came from contracts that had ended before George W. Bush was a member, 2) Several members of the Clinton and Carter administrations are also in the Carlyle Group, 3) Bush cancelled a major defense system produced by a Carlyle Group subsidiary.

The pipeline that Uncocal wanted to build in Afghanistan was a CLinton-era project that was dead before Bush came to office.
