Randi Rhoades: did anyone get the name of the article she
was talking about on her segment today? She started it by saying that the Arabs do not hate because of our freedoms. Then, she read a great article from the Sunday Herald about a corporation that started with a V and went on to talk about the Bush, Saudi Arabia, Bin Ladin connection and American Corporations being protected there. Does anyone remember the name of the article?

Saudis donated millions of dollars to Bush family charities. Mahfouzes and bin Ladens bought into the Carlyle Group, the private equity firm that counted George Bush Sr. and James Baker as paid-up advisers in the 1990s. For Unger, all this is evidence of a ''strategy the Saudis had of investing in U.S. companies that were connected to powerful politicians.'' Unger claims that Saudi interests have paid no less than $1.477 billion to persons and entities in the Bush circle. Yet the largest portion, $819 million, involved contract payments to Vinnell Corp. of Fairfax, Va., which has been training the Saudi National Guard on behalf of the U.S. military since the early 1970s.

4. page 2, from Randi's April archives....
Edited on Sat Apr-24-04 05:48 PM by krkaufman

Vinnell and House of Saud

p.s. AAR's weekend shows are "best of..." bits from the week's earlier live broadcasts. The Vinnell bit was discussed, it appears, during Randi's April 21st show.

Thanks again. I really wanted to see it. Seems very important.
