"Saudi Sheikh Khalid bin Mahfouz, an Osama bin Laden benefactor, has laundered money into tax-exempt U.S. entities for years as a foreign financier of terrorism. But a new 9/11 lawsuit is thrusting Mahfouz's latent past business links to George W. Bush back into the spotlight and raising important questions about links between Saudi finance and terrorism in America."

"Recall that Bush [Senior] and his minions did everything possible to obstruct Walsh's investigation. Walsh's team had discovered notes written by Caspar Weinberger which disproved Bush's claim that he had been "out of the loop." These notes proved that Weinberger had knowledge of $25 million in Saudi Arabian contributions to the Nicaraguan contras. . . .
        "According to Brosnahan, the trial would have shown that Weinberger knew as early as summer 1985 that President Ronald Reagan had personally authorized missile shipments to Iran in violation of the Arms Control Export Act, and that this potentially impeachable act was concealed by constructing a false record. `The August [1985] meeting [of Reagan's National Security Council] discussed having Israel send the missiles to Iran and replenishing them out of U.S. stocks,' says Brosnahan. `Weinberger is responsible for all missiles. The Secretary of Defense is the guy.'
        "Another guy who stood to lose his exalted standing in Washington if the trial took place was General Colin Powell, who was Weinberger's principal aide in 1985. In an affidavit, Powell said he `saw virtually all the papers that went in and out of [Weinberger's] office' and thus would have had direct access to the evidence of missile replenishment. Early in the investigation, Powell gave conflicting accounts of his knowledge of Weinberger's extensive personal notes, denying knowledge of their existence (when Weinberger was claiming he didn't take any), and then saying in 1992 that the notes were no secret and describing them in detail (after Weinberger was forced to cough them up)."

"Herta Daeubler-Gmelin got it half-right when she compared George W. Bush's tactics to Adolf Hitler's. `Bush wants to divert attention from his domestic problems,' she told Schwaebisches Tagblatt on Sept. 18. `It's a classic tactic. It's one that Hitler also used.' Shortly after Ms. Daeubler-Gmelin made her remarks, Bush flung his long knives across the Atlantic, and within days she was no longer Germany's justice minister.
        "Such sovereignty-busting gangsterism has its pleasures, but Bush's biggest cribbing from the Hitler playbook is `permanent revolution.' Developed by socialist theorist Leon Trotsky in 1915 and applied by such totalitarian masters of control as Hitler, Stalin and Mao Tse-Tung, permanent revolution is the pinnacle of the art of mass distraction -- one continually changes the subject of debate by striving for new goals that are always just beyond reach. The idea is diabolically simple: by the time people start grumbling about the problems created by your Great Leap Forward, you're causing new difficulties with your Cultural Revolution. Opposition takes time to materialize; taking the nation from one crisis to the next neutralizes your enemies by focusing them against initiatives you've already abandoned.
        "On the domestic front, Bush has launched so many political offensives that it's impossible . . . to launch a coordinated resistance. . . . In a blizzard of legislative and regulatory activity, virtually everything on the right-wing wish list is now being proposed. Previous presidents spaced out their initiatives in order to build popular support; Bush prefers to leave elected representatives out of the equation. The more legislation he throws at the wall, the more he'll get passed -- and the more people will forget that his is an illegal regime."
