George Bush Jr - Timeline
from - 19th Sep 2002
1988: Prior to this year, George Bush Jr. is a failed oil man. Three times
friends and investors have bailed him out to keep him from going bankrupt.
But in this year, the same year his father becomes President, some Saudis buy
a portion of his small company, Harken, which has never worked outside of
Texas. Later in the year, Harken wins a contract in the Persian Gulf and
starts doing well financially. These transactions seem so suspicious that
even the Wall Street Journal in 1991 states it "raises the question of ... an
effort to cozy up to a presidential son." Two major investors into Bush's
company during this time are Salem bin Laden, Osama bin Laden's father, and
Khaled bin Mahfouz. [Salon, 11/19/01, Intelligence Newsletter, 3/2/00] Khaled
bin Mahfouz is a Saudi banker with a 20% stake in BCCI, a bank that will go
bankrupt a few years later in the biggest corruption scandal in banking
history (see July 5, 1991). In 1999 Mahfouz will be placed under house arrest
in Saudi Arabia for contributions he gave to welfare organizations closely
linked to bin Laden. [Boston Herald, 12/11/01] The sister of Mahfouz is
married to Osama bin Laden. [Washington Post, 2/17/02]

June 4, 1992: It is reported that the FBI is investigating the connections
between James Bath and George Bush Jr. Bath is Salem bin Laden's official
representative in the US. "Documents indicate that the Saudis were using Bath
and their huge financial resources to influence US policy," since Bush Jr.'s
father is president. Bush denies any connections to Saudi money. What became
of this investigation is unclear. [Houston Chronicle, 6/4/92]

January, 2000:  Former President George Bush Sr. meets with the bin Laden
family on the behalf of the Carlyle Group. He had also met with them in 1998,
but its not known if he met with them after this (this meeting was denied
until a thank you note was found confirming it). [Wall Street Journal,
9/27/01, Guardian, 10/31/01]

September 11, 2001: The Carlyle Group is a company closely associated with
officials of the Bush and Reagan administrations, and has considerable ties
to Saudi oil money, including ties to the bin Laden family (see September 27,
2001). Those ties are well illustrated by the fact that on this day the
Carlyle Group is hosting a conference at a Washington hotel. Among the guests
of honor is investor Shafig bin Laden, brother to Osama. [Observer, 6/16/02]
