(Excerpted from Chapter 20: 911: Big Oil & Their Bankers…)
Osama bin Laden received financial support from Saudi billionaire Sheik Khalid bin Mahfouz. He is represented in the US by Washington, DC law firm Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld, the firm which represents the Muslim Brotherhood House of Saud and their world’s largest Islamic charity- the Holy Land Foundation for Development & Relief.
Akin, Gump defended Chevron Texaco Central Asia partner and James Baker sugar daddy Sheik Khalid bin Mahfouz when the BCCI scandal broke. Three Akin, Gump partners are close friends of President George W. Bush. 
A 1999 Saudi government audit found that bin Mahfouz’ National Commercial Bank had transferred over $3 million to Osama bin Laden charities that year.  Bin Mahfouz could not be accused of disloyalty to family, since he was now a brother-in-law of Osama’s.
Bin Laden’s brother Salem was a close business associate of CIA agent James Bath, whose Skycraft Airways leased planes to bin Mahfouz when the sheik was washing Medellin Cartel cocaine money through the BCCI Caymans branch, along with Saudi intelligence chief Kamal Adham. Bin Laden’s brother was an investor in Harken Energy, which George W. Bush started with $50,000 in seed money from Mohammed bin Laden. As the two jumbo jets crashed into the World Trade Center on 911, another of Osama’s brothers- Shafiq bin Laden- was attending the annual investor conference of Carlyle Group in Washington, DC. Both Osama’s father Mohammed and his brother Salem died in plane crashes.
One of the speakers at that DC conference may have been George Bush Sr., who now worked as financial adviser for the Mellon family-controlled Carlyle Group- chaired by Frank Carlucci, who was Reagan and Bush Defense Secretary and chaired Reagan’s NSC. Carlucci worked with mobsters in the 1961 CIA assassination of Congolese Prime Minister Patrice Lumumba. He was a Yale roommate of Bush Jr. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld. They were joined at Yale by James Baker and George Bush Sr.- member of Skull & Bones, alternately known as the Brotherhood of Death and The Order- a name shared by ancient Afghan Roshaniya terrorists.
Carlyle Group was founded by Carter aid David Rubenstein in 1987. It is a private equity fund that specializes in recycling petrodollars from Persian Gulf sheiks back into Eight Families banks. Until November 2001 Carlyle served as financial consultant to the wealthiest construction magnate in Saudi Arabia- Sheik Mohammed bin Laden. Through Carlyle Sheik bin Laden made big investments in Citigroup, the Dutch banking giant ABN Amro, Nortel, Motorola and GE. More significantly, there were reports that the bin Laden family worked through Carlyle Group to acquire a large stake of Deutsche Bank- whose former chairman J. H. Binford Peay sits on the board of Carlyle with George Bush Sr. and James Baker. 
Baker’s family law firm- Baker Botts- has offices in Riyadh. Former partner Robert Jordan, who defended George W. in the Harken Energy scandal, was US Ambassador to Saudi Arabia. Baker Botts represented BP Amoco in Central Asia and was legal counsel to Carlyle Group. The Bakers have for generations served as Rockefeller straw men. President Bush Sr. intervened in a lawsuit by US citizens charging King Fahd and the Saudi police with torture, on behalf of the Saudi monarchs whom he now advises at Carlyle. Shortly after 911 Bush Sr. met with Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah in Riyadh, while James Baker huddled with a group of international bankers at London’s swank Lanesborough Hotel. Baker later represented the Saudi royal family in a lawsuit brought against them by 911 victims’ families. 
Bush, Baker and Deutsche Bank’s Peay are joined on Carlyle’s board by former British Prime Minister John Major, former SEC Chairman Arthur Levitt, Reagan Budget Director Richard Darman and former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General John Shalikashvili. Former Philippine President Fidel Ramos- head of intelligence for the Marcos regime- joins a former Thai Prime Minister, former South Korean Prime Minister Park Tae Joon and the director of the BCCI-tainted Abu Dhabi Investment Authority on Carlyle’s Asia Advisory Board. 
Carlyle bought real estate firm Coldwell Banker from Sears in 1989 and sold it to Bechtel’s Fremont Group. Carlyle also bought Caterair- the world’s #1 airline food service- from Marriott. Caterair enjoys unprecedented access to the world’s fleet of commercial airliners. President George Bush Jr. headed Caterair until 1994. Soon after he became Governor of Texas the company went belly-up. Carlyle swooped in to buy up its remains at a bargain price. Bush oversaw a $10 million University of Texas investment in Carlyle while he was governor.
Carlyle owns a big chunk of Ford’s aerospace division and Harasco- a manufacturer of military vehicles. Carlyle is the 11th largest defense contractor in the US. It is 20%-owned by Mellon Bank and is controlled by the Mellon family’s Blackstone Group- which dined cheaply on the carcasses of looted S&L’s at auctions held by Bush Sr.’s Resolution Trust Corporation.
Blackstone, whose chairman Peter Fischer also serves as current CFR Chairman, also owns Bioport- the sole US manufacturer of anthrax vaccine. In October 2001 Florida-based tabloids, major media outlets and Congressional members began receiving packets of lethal anthrax, later identified as the “Ames” strain. The tabloids- including Sun, National Enquirer and Weekly World News- have historically served as disinformation and diversion fronts for the CIA.  On October 12th scientists at Iowa State University’s USDA veterinary laboratory in Ames- with the blessing of the FBI- incinerated a 100-vial collection of anthrax culture dating back to 1928, deliberately destroying material evidence in the anthrax investigations. 
Bioport’s future was looking brighter all the time. Its biggest shareholder is Fuad El-Hibri, a wealthy Saudi businessman close to the bin Laden family. El-Hibri was mergers and acquisitions manager at Citigroup. The Pakistan News Service reported on December 1, 2001 that numerous Bioport documents had been found in al Qaeda safe houses in Kabul. Admiral William Crowe- board member at Chevron Texaco and former member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff- acquired a 22% stake in Bioport for the very special price of $0. Crowe’s part of the bargain was to promote Bioport’s anthrax vaccine to the US military. Many Bioport stockholders are part of the Porton Down British oligarchy.
Bayer- the German drug giant that emerged from the Nazi IG Farben combine- saw sales of its antibiotic Cipromyacin skyrocket by 1000% as a result of the anthrax scare, as US citizens rushed to buy a 60-day supply of the anthrax deterrent for $700 a pop. Bayer had been teetering on the brink of bankruptcy prior to 911.
According to Michael Davidson of From the Wilderness Publications, no less than twelve world-class microbiologists died under mysterious circumstances following 911. Dr. Don Wiley of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute at Harvard was found drowned in the Mississippi River days after his abandoned car was found on the I-40 bridge in Memphis, not far from the Pyramid arena. Memphis takes its name from an ancient Egyptian capital of great significance to the Brotherhood.
Several leading Russian and Israeli microbiologists were on Air Sibir Flight 1812, which was shot down by a Ukrainian missile gone over 100 miles astray on October 4, 2001. Several other prominent microbiologists were on a Swiss Air flight that crashed as it attempted to land in Zurich on November 24, 2001. Aside from the billions to be made by Bioport, Bayer and the Rockefeller-controlled pharmaceutical industry from the anthrax-induced public panic; Davidson sees in this mysterious slew of scientist deaths a darker plot to unleash a massive new global depopulation program of which the recent West Nile Virus, bird flu ans SARS epidemics could also be a part.
According to Dr. Len Horowitz, weapons-grade anthrax is available almost exclusively from the American Type Culture Collection (ATCC) of Rockville, MD, which is led by Dr. Joshua Lederberg. Lederberg is President of Rockefeller University. In 1994 the Congressional Don Riegle Report exposed that ATCC had sent nineteen shipments of bacillus anthraces to Iraq from 1978-1988.
