In keeping with the original thread topic, I found this very interesting that may interest those of you who think as I do that the OS is a lie and a
Bush names former New Jersey Republican Governor and Homeland Security Project Co-Chairman Thomas Kean, who has a business link to the husband of
one of Osama bin Laden's sisters, to replace Henry Kissinger as head of the 9/11 commission.
"President Bush named former New Jersey Gov. Thomas Kean, a moderate Republican with a record of bipartisan cooperation, to replace Henry Kissinger
as head of the panel investigating the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks.
"Tom Kean is a leader respected for integrity, fairness and good judgment," Bush said Monday in a prepared statement. "I am confident he will work
to make the commission's investigation thorough. It is important that we uncover every detail and learn every lesson of Sept. 11." Bush initially
resisted forming the commission." - USA Today (12/16/02)
"The Homeland Security Project is guided by a coordinating committee co-chaired by Tom Kean, the former New Jersey governor and current Drew
University president, and Richard Celeste, the former Ohio governor and ambassador to India and current Colorado College president. The coordinating
committee will develop recommendations arising from analysis produced by expert working groups focusing on four topics: The federal response,
including an exploration of the design and function of the Office of Homeland security; federal-state coordination; the challenge of media coverage
and public information disclosure by government officials regarding homeland security stories; and immigration and national security." - Homeland
"In December, President Bush named Thomas Kean, the former Republican governor of New Jersey, chairman of an independent commission examining the
Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. But FORTUNE has learned that Kean appears to have a bizarre link to the very terror network he's investigating--al
Here's how the dots connect: Kean is a director of petroleum giant Amerada Hess, which in 1998 formed a joint venture--known as Delta Hess--with
Delta Oil, a Saudi Arabian company, to develop oil fields in Azerbaijan. One of Delta's backers is Khalid bin Mahfouz, a shadowy Saudi patriarch
married to one of Osama bin Laden's sisters. Mahfouz, who is suspected of funding charities linked to al Qaeda, is even named as a defendant in a
lawsuit filed by families of Sept. 11 victims. True, Hess is hardly the only company to cross paths with Mahfouz: He has shown up in dealings with,
among others, ultra-secretive investment firm Carlyle Group and BCCI, the lender toppled by fraud in 1992.
Kean, who was unavailable for comment, may not have been aware of the Mahfouz connection. But Hess spokesman Carl Tursi did reveal another interesting
coincidence: Three weeks before Kean's appointment, Hess severed its ties with Delta." - Fortune (01/22/03)
And remember the Bush - Bin Laden family link is all too well established. So I guess they wanted to keep it in the family uh?
