We all heard it before Bush has close ties to Saudi Arabia
Democrats spent much of the presidential campaign this year accusing President Bush of improperly close ties to Saudi Arabia. The case was made in
Michael Moore’s film Fahrenheit 9/11.
Harold Ickes, spent millions airing television commercials in swing states with scripts such as, “The Saudi royal family ... wealthy ... powerful ...
corrupt. And close Bush family friends.”
It turns out the Saudis put up a nice some of money for Bill Clinton's presidential library. Something to the tune of $4 million + dollars. Gifts of
$1 million or more each from the Saudi royals and three Saudi businessmen.
News of the Saudi cash infusions confirms a report by columnist Robert Novak, who revealed in 2003 that the Saudis had pledged up to $20 million to
help build the Clinton facility.
So its looks like even the Democrats golden boy is not free from the reach of Saudi money even years after he has left office. Clinton must have had
close ties if he is getting millions even years after he can do anything for them.
“The Saudi royal family ... wealthy ... powerful ... corrupt. And close Clinton family friends.”
