I don't do threads on a conspiracy site. All the dumbass fruitcakes come out of the woodwork and derail anything controversial. White trash Jew haters are enough to deal with.
The bin Laden family of course enter the picture. But I don't want to get into the long involved Saudi-US history. Books on it - the recent "House of Saud, House of Bush" covers it as do others.
No coincidence the bin Laden patriarch, Osama's daddy and sire of 50 siblings, died in a light plane crash in Texas in 1968. His son, Osama's big brother took over. And guess what, he died in a plane crash in Texas in 1988!
As I've said before, the Saudis have been running US Middle East policy for decades now. Where Pakistan fits in is another story. But as you can guess it has to do with control of Central Asian oil, and Afghanstan is the key.

It's all as Brzezinski (a member of the US-Azerbaijan Chamber of Commerce!) laid out back in the 1970s... if a nation wants to be a dominate superpower, then it will require control of the Eurasian oil fields. Hence American crawling in bed with ideologies that, on the surface, are completely opposing.
Corporatism and the intelligence community, in my opinion, also operate outside the defined 'national' concept, in a netherworld of their own.
So why should a government [the Bush administration] so eager to please its Gulf allies, particularly the Saudis, go out of its way to take the side of Ariel Sharon's Israel?
Two public policy organisations give us a sense of an answer: The Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP) and the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA). Martin Indyk, who worked as research director at AIPAC, founded WINEP in 1985 to produce policy papers on Israel in order to strengthen U.S.-Israeli relations. In 1988, WINEP published a report, "Building for Peace: An American Strategy for the Middle East", that focussed on what the new administration must do about the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. WINEP concluded that the U.S. government should "resist pressures for a procedural breakthrough until conditions have ripened", that is, until the Palestinian resistance had been broken. Six members of the WINEP study group that wrote the report entered the 1988-1992 Bush administration, which, as it happened, adopted the right-wing Israeli line to alienate the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) despite its recognition of Israel at the Palestinian National Council of November 1988. While WINEP tended to toe the line of whatever party came to power in Israel, JINSA was the U.S. offshoot of the right-wing Likud Party.
