Know Bush Fact #2

Based on the belief that the truth shall set you free:

Former FBI Deputy Director John O'Neill was in charge of the investigations into:

• the bin Laden-connected bombings of the World Trade Center in 1993

• the destruction of an American troop barracks in Saudi Arabia in 1996

• the African Embassy bombings in 1998, and

• the attack upon the USS Cole in 2000 . . .

told French researchers in the summer of 2001:

"The main obstacles to investigate Islamic terrorism were U.S. oil corporate interests, and the role played by Saudi Arabia in it...All the answers, everything needed to dismantle Osama bin Laden's organization, can be found in Saudi Arabia."

In a tragic irony, O'Neill quit the FBI two weeks before 9/11 in disgust over the Bush Administration's refusal to investigate Saudi ties to Al Qaeda and went to work as head of security at the World Trade Center, where he was killed in the attack.

Know Bush Fact #1

to the
Inaugural Message
Know Bush

Based on the belief that The Truth Shall Set You Free

As an introduction, you know me. I am your friend, your neighbor, your family, your customer, someone I've shared moments with.

We probably don't agree on everything, but we've smiled together.

All I ask is that you, and the people you share this with,
be open, be willing to know more, and vote.

It has never been more important. (So now keep reading...)

Today's Know Bush Fact is:

When Bush went to Ground Zero shortly after September 11, he threw his arm around a tired, retired firefighter at the scene and assured him and the other rescue workers he was with them. In August 2002, he pocket vetoed $150 million in emergency first responder grants.

Thank you for paying attention. Now pass it on.
