I was right, you were right, Michael Moore was right. The Bush assministration and the FBI went to extraordinary lengths to help hundreds of Saudi nationals escape from the U.S. within days of the most devastating terrorist attack in U.S. history, a terrorist attack perpetrated almost exclusively by Saudis. The latest reports include additional details about charter flights out of Los Vegas facilitated by the FBI and the assministration.
The three Las Vegas flights, with a total of more than 100 passengers, ferried members of the Saudi royal family and staff members who had been staying at Caesar’s Palace and the Four Seasons hotels. The group had tried unsuccessfully to charter flights back to Saudi Arabia between Sept. 13 and Sept. 17 because they said they feared for their safety as a result of the Sept. 11 attacks, the F.B.I. documents say.
Once the group managed to arrange chartered flights out of the country, an unidentified prince in the Las Vegas group “thanked the F.B.I. for their assistance,” according to one internal report. The F.B.I. had interviewed many members of the group and searched their planes before allowing them to leave, but it nonetheless went back to the Las Vegas hotels with subpoenas five days after the initial flight had departed to collect further information on the Saudi royal guests, the documents show.
Yep, that’s right. Five days after the FBI hustled Bush 41’s golfing buddies out of the country they subpeonaed Las Vegas hotels in order to find out WHO THE HELL THEY JUST FLEW OUT OF THE COUNTRY!!!
9/11 changed everything.
