House of Bush, House of Saud
Salon.com is publishing a series of excerpts from journalist Craig Unger’s forthcoming book, “House of Bush, House of Saud”, detailing the close connections between the two families and the ramifactions for American policy. The first installment, posted today, provides details and eyewitness accounts of a secret airlift of dozens of Saudi royals and members of the bin Laden family, authorized by the Bush White House in the hours following 9/11. Among the airliftees was an alleged al-Qaida go-between, who may have known about the terror attacks in advance. Nice.
