House of Bush, House of Saud

A new book by journalist Craig Unger, House of Bush, House of Saud, examines the intimate connections between the Bush family and the Saudi Arabian Royal Family, and in turn, the intimate connection between the Royal Family and Osama bin Laden and the militant strains of Islamic Fundamentalism behind the September 11 attacks.

Salon Magazine has a excerpt from the book that discusses how, immediately after the September 11 attacks, members of the Saudi Royal Family, including a sister of Osama bin Laden, who were in America were secretly rounded up by the White House and flown out of the country “for their protection” while all other air travel was grounded.
