    Another book every American needs to read If half of it is true we were governed by criminals including Bush and Cheney Anyon who believes we have a liberal media is way off base I do not remeber hearing about the Sauds and bin Ladens allowed to fly whe the rest of America couldn t It should have been on every news channel That is just one example of the corruption of the Bush admistration.

    House of Bush, House of Saud delves into the relationship between the Bush crime family and the Saudi Royal family It also goes into the Bin Laden family and their interactions with both, as well as stuff about the Carlyle Group and the allegations that members of the Saudi Royal family flowed money to Cial queda After all there was a captured high level cial queda op that blabbed that members of the Saudi Royal family and other super wealthy Saudis helped Cial queda and knew 9 11 was going to House of Bush, House of Saud delves into the relationship between the Bush crime family and the Saudi Royal family It also goes into the Bin Laden family and their interactions with both, as well as stuff about the Carlyle Group and the allegations that members of the Saudi Royal family flowed money to Cial queda After all there was a captured high level cial queda op that blabbed that members of the Saudi Royal family and other super wealthy Saudis helped Cial queda and knew 9 11 was going to happen beforehand A funny thing is that many of the people named turned up dead under very fishy circumstances within the next few years I also thought this book did a good job of going into the how and questioning why Saudis were allowed to fly out of the USA right after 9 11 when all air traffic was suspended and hundreds of completely innocent Muslims from other countries that were staying in America were being rounded up This included sevral memebers of the Bin Laden family It seems awful fishy to me when you consider that even by the US governments own account 15 of the 19 hijackers were from Saudi Arabia There are lots of other interesting tidbits in this Like how Saudi Arabia is an Islamo Fascist state where you can be executed for adultery and have your hand chopped off for stealing an apple but at the same time the Saudi Royal family are notorious gambling, whoring, drinking and drugging party animals They also talk about how in the 1980s Saudis were helping the CIA instigate war between Iraq and Iran by sending them intelligence that exagerated Irans military weakness in order to encourage Iraq to attack them Criticisms I have of this is when going into Poppy Bushs history it fails to mention that Reagan hated Bush and was bullied into choosing him as Vice president as well as failing to mention that Bush was a lackey for Kissinger for several years Also some of the extraneous history seems like filler, it unnecessarily goes into neo con war policy in Iraq for example It seems like he gets almost all the info for this book from other sources but its put together well The Saudi Royals are definitely close to the top of the new world order pyramid Certainly overall they havepower than the Bush crime family who are really just high level servants to the people that really run the world

    Most books about the 43rd presidency have described the poor decision making and the lack of judgement in a President who was in over his head.

    When this book came out, author and investigative reporter Unger was accused of writing a highly political book The accusation possibly holds merit, but then, there is probably also no way to write a book like this and have it not be political Unger himself insists he was not trying to write a Republican vs Democrat book, merely a book about the relationship between one political family in America and one Royal Family in the Middle East The book puts together what really is a documented and When this book came out, author and investigative reporter Unger was accused of writing a highly political book The accusation possibly holds merit, but then, there is probably also no way to write a book like this and have it not be political Unger himself insists he was not trying to write a Republican vs Democrat book, merely a book about the relationship between one political family in America and one Royal Family in the Middle East The book puts together what really is a documented and acknowledged decades long relationship between the dynasties of George H W Bush and the Saud family of Saudi Arabia This relationship isn t disputed by anyone That 15 of 19 hijackers on September 11th came from Saudi Arabia, that Osama bin Laden was Saudi, that many in The Kingdom harbor anti American sentiment, it is inarguably alarming that our leader walks around holding hands with the Crown Prince We don t even have diplomatic discussions with other states in similar straits That never in American history has a President been so close to a foreign leader really, especially given today s relationship to the Middle East, really should be cause for alarm to Republicans and Democrats alike NC

    It s amazing how little of this information the average American knows Before reading this book, I didn t know a lot of this information either For example, it s shocking that under the Reagan administration Saddam Hussein was considered an ally of the U.S that fact never seemed to recieve much attention in the mainstream news media Nor did the Bush family s relationship with the Saudi Royal family If it weren t for Michael Moore and brave journalists like this author, very few Americans It s amazing how little of this information the average American knows Before reading this book, I didn t know a lot of this information either For example, it s shocking that under the Reagan administration Saddam Hussein was considered an ally of the U.S that fact never seemed to recieve much attention in the mainstream news media Nor did the Bush family s relationship with the Saudi Royal family If it weren t for Michael Moore and brave journalists like this author, very few Americans would know about the Bush administration s incredible secrecy and hypocricy when in comes to Middle Eastern affairs Of course, they are very secretive and hypocritical about everything else, so that s hardly surprising It s amazing how the mainstream news media turns a blind eye to such disturbing information, while focusing on ridiculously trivial matters like why Obama doesn t wear an American flag pin on his lapel

    Although dated published in 2003 , this book was still worth reading just as the eye opener for the common citizen of the world who rarely, if ever, moves in or understands the groups that shape our destinies It s scary to see how intertwined money, politics and wars are and how absolutely inconsequential you, the meek, non billionaire, non politician citizen are in the eyes of the powerful One major criticism The opening chapter proposes to tell us that because of the Bush Saud connection Although dated published in 2003 , this book was still worth reading just as the eye opener for the common citizen of the world who rarely, if ever, moves in or understands the groups that shape our destinies It s scary to see how intertwined money, politics and wars are and how absolutely inconsequential you, the meek, non billionaire, non politician citizen are in the eyes of the powerful One major criticism The opening chapter proposes to tell us that because of the Bush Saud connection, that this caused 9 11 But, while the book shows many, many connections between the two houses, it never proves that 9 11 happened because of that connection Certainly the arming of the Mujahadeen by the Carter administration is part of 9 11, as is the failure to kill UBL by the Clinton administration The Bushes are the most to blame, but Craig Unger fails to wrap up his book by proving his opening accusation

    The information in this book, all thoroughly documented, shines a light on aspects of the events of 9 11 and the connection between the Bush family and the Saudi royals that has been conspicuously missing from the mainstream media It raises painful questions about where the highest loyalties and priorities of the president and his father really lie It s disturbing, disheartening and even kind of sickening, but it s important for as many American citizens as possible to know these things If kn The information in this book, all thoroughly documented, shines a light on aspects of the events of 9 11 and the connection between the Bush family and the Saudi royals that has been conspicuously missing from the mainstream media It raises painful questions about where the highest loyalties and priorities of the president and his father really lie It s disturbing, disheartening and even kind of sickening, but it s important for as many American citizens as possible to know these things If knowledge is power, ignorance can be terrible vulnerability
