Brian died in June 2003 in Phoenix, the same place Tim died. My chapter, "Brian, Passage and the Turkeys" describes a possible psychic experience I had some weeks after his death. I hadn't recognized it as such at the time.. He'd been kind and encouraging to me, sending me a sound file of his interview with a suspect in the possibly CIA-related "temple murders" in Phoenix of 1991.

KATRINA SCANDALS? One million displaced Americans, 500,000 from New Orleans. Yet, Navy ships scrambled emergency radio traffic, further confusing rescue efforts ( WayneMadsenReport). W. Bush refused to shorten his vacation (AP), delaying White House action. National Guard refused Red Cross access to New Orleans ( Post-Gazette 9/3/05). Homeland Security turned back water supplies to Superdome-housed survivors based on erroneous FEMA reports (--Michael Chertoff, Meet the Press 9/4/05). WHAT?!

Great Old Record of the Grand Old Party HERE
Tim, George Bush and Me: The Undercurrents In All Our Lives, an investigative memoir about his late brother and his search for the source of a strange radio book ad in 1980 that asked: "What Vice-Presidential candidate landed his plane on an enemy-held island and delivered a message to the Japanese [for Standard Oil]?" NOTE TO READER: Over this Site, you'll find several possible scenarios re: GHW Bush in WW2, cover-ups, Demo infighting, GOP election acts. Any one could be right or wrong. With a Bush seeming OSS/CIA/Allen Dulles/Big Oil background, questions are inevitable. My favorite scenario on all is "paranormal"--that the subconscious conscience "arranges" events/documents to point at the guilty-feeling persons in question. (GHW or Prescott, sr., Bush's guilt feelings re: pre-War pro-Nazi oil deals, for example). The Mind, I believe, is key to all: object follows image. In an interesting coincidence, One Step Beyond, the TV show referred to in Tim and Me below, had an episode ("Justice Three") describing a paranormal event inspired by a guilty conscience. But I don't rule out anything.
: In my "latest" file, cited further down on this page, I make brief note of this paranormal perspective. Do Bush's "funny looking" records and confused fellow squadron members' accounts, reflect Bush's own guilty conscience here? Bush became a member of the Caterpillar Club shortly after his bailout at Chi Chi Jima. Did he subsequently feel uneasy about the abruptness of his decision to bail out so quickly--a move that may have jeopardized the lives of his two crewmen that day? (Bush was the pilot of the plane at the time.) Has his conscious effort to rationalize his behavior that day not fully taken with his own conscience, and is this why some had come to question things? Might this even explain such odd things as the odd-appearing records, some of which may reflect Dulles/Forrestal efforts to ensure his good status as an OSS rather than regular Navy pilot, and some of which, may reflect reactions of various record keepers to statements Bush himself made...statements that may not have come out as he intended, perhaps?
IT IS IMPORTANT FOR ALL THE READERS TO NOTE THAT, WHILE George H. W. BUSH'S RECORDS DO SOMETIMES "LOOK FUNNY," AND WHILE THERE ARE S0METIMES CONTRADICTORY STATEMENTS IN ACCOUNTS OF SOME EVENTS, THIS IS NOT EVIDENCE THAT HE COMMITTED ILLEGAL ACTS OR THAT HE DIDN'T DESERVE THE MEDALS HE WAS AWARDED IN WORLD WAR II. I PERSONALLY HAVE NEVER MADE THIS ALLEGATION, BUT CAN ONLY REPORT TO THE READER THAT I HEARD THIS ALLEGATION MADE, IN SOME MANNER, IN A RADIO AD FOR A BOOK THAT CANNOT TODAY BE READILY FOUND OR IDENTIFIED. I HAVE ATTEMPTED TO COMMUNICATE WITH NUMEROUS PARTIES TO GET ADDITIONAL INFORMATION AND HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO GET CLARIFYING DATA, EVEN AFTER MANY YEARS OF EFFORT. I MUST ADD, HOWEVER, THAT I HAVE HAD AMBIVELANT EMOTIONS ABOUT MY FINDINGS AS I WENT ALONG, AND THAT THERE IS POWERFUL EVIDENCE FOR THE FOLLOWING:
1. REPUBLICAN PARTY OPERATIVES WERE ACTIVELY INVOLVED IN TRYING TO ESTABLISH THE FRAMEWORK OF A NEGOTIATED TRUCE BETWEEN THE AXIS AND THE ALLIES BASED ON A CONTINUING WAR BETWEEN THE AXIS AND THE USSR WHILE PEACE BETWEEN THE WESTERN ALLIES AND THE AXIS.
2. GEORGE BUSH'S FATHER WAS A FRIEND AND BUSINESS ASSOCIATE WITH ALLEN DULLES, WHO WAS INVOLVED IN SUCH ACTIVITIES AND THE CHIEF OSS AGENT IN GENEVA SWITZERLAND. HE WAS ALSO A FRIEND AND BUSINESS ASSOCIATE OF SECRETARY OF THE NAVY JAMES FORRESTAL, AND SECRETARIES OF WAR FOR AIR AND NAVY ROBERT LOVETT AND ARTEMUS GATES.
3. GEORGE BUSH KNEW THE WHEREABOUTS, AS A NAVAL PILOT DURING AN ACTIVE BATTLE OF WW2, THE BATTLE OF THE PHILIPPINES SEA, OF VICE-ADMIRAL KAUFMAN. THIS IS INFORMATION NOT NORMALLY GIVEN TO "REGULAR NAVY" PILOTS. GEORGE BUSH BECAME A PILOT AT THE AGE OF 19, WHEN NAVAL REGULATIONS FORBADE SUCH UNTIL THE AGE OF 21. GEORGE BUSH WROTE CAPTIONS ON PHOTOS DURING THE PALAU CAMPAIGN OF 1944, AND INITIALLY A COURT-MARTIAL PROCEDURE WAS BEGUN, BUT WAS TERMINATED. OSS RECONNAISANCE PILOTS WERE ALLOWED TO WRITE SUCH CAPTIONS ON PHOTOS, SO THIS, COMBINED WITH BUSH'S YOUNG AGE, ALL SUGGEST BUSH WAS AN OSS, RATHER THAN REGULAR NAVY PILOT. THIS MIGHT ALSO EXPLAIN HOW HE ACCESSED INFORMATION AS TO THE LOCATION OF AN ADMIRAL DURING AN ACTIVE BATTLE.
4. DURING A TYPICAL WATER LANDING OF AN AIRCRAFT SUCH AS THE TBM AVENGER IN WW2 WHEN THE PLANE HAD SUSTAINED DAMAGE OR WAS EXPERIENCING DIFFICULTIES, IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR THE CREW TO ESCAPE WITHOUT GETTING DRENCHED TO THE SKIN. YET, ON HAND OBSERVERS STATED THE BUSH'S CREW WAS BONE DRY WHEN PICKED UP OUT OF A RAFT SHORTLY AFTER THE WATER LANDING. THERE ARE ALSO CONTRADICTORY ACCOUNTS AS TO WHAT LEVEL OF DIFFICULTY BUSH'S AIRCRAFT WAS EXPERIENCING PRIOR TO THE WATER LANDING OF BUSH'S AIRCRAFT ON JUNE 19, 1944, DURING THE BATTLE OF THE PHILIPPINES SEA.
A. DURING THE BATTLE OF THE PHILIPPINES SEA, ALL JAPANESE AIRCRAFT IN THE AREA ENGAGED IN A STRANGE "ORBIT" MANEUVER OVER THE US FLEET AREA AND THE MARIANNAS ISLANDS. There is no overwhelming evidence that this MANEUVER HAD ANY MILITARY ADVANTAGE AT ALL FOR THE JAPANESE. IT WAS ENGAGED IN--SIMULTANEOUSLY--BY BOTH JAPANESE LAND-BASED AND SEA-BASED AIRCRAFT, SUGGESTING IT WAS ORDERED BY A JAPANESE GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL, RATHER THAN BEING BASED ON A MILITARY OFFICER'S ORDER. THIS ODD MANEUVER RESULTED IN HUGE AIR LOSSES FOR JAPAN IN WHAT CAME TO BE CALLED THE "GREAT MARIANAS ISLAND TURKEY SHOOT." WHY IT WAS ORDERED AND DONE, AND WHO ORDERED IT, SEEM TO BE SOMETHING OF A MYSTERY--at least, when you examine all of the evidence on hand, including the inclusion of land-based Japanese aircraft.
B. SHORTLY AFTER THIS MANEUVER AND BATTLE, HIDEKI TOJO, JAPAN'S ORIGINAL WARTIME PRIME MINISTER, RESIGNED AND WAS REPLACED BY OTHER PARTIES IN THE JAPANESE CABINET. IT IS NOW KNOWN THAT THE JAPANESE EMPEROR HIROHITO WAS A SECRET "DOVE" ON THE WAR, AND WANTED TO NEGOTIATE A SURRENDER FAR SOONER THAN HIS SUBORDINATES, AND ENGAGED IN MANEUVERS TO BOOT "HAWKS" OUT OF THE GOVERNMENT AND REPLACE THEM WITH DOVES. IN THIS SAME JUNE-JULY TIME-FRAME, REPORTS WERE RECEIVED OUT OF BULGARIA OF EFFORTS BY "EXCHANGE STUDENTS" TO ENTER AND LEAVE JAPAN, WITH ALLIED COOPERATION. THOUGH IT IS INTERPRETED AS AN EFFORT BY BULGARIA, WHICH WAS ONLY TECHNICALLY AXIS, TO ENTER A TRUCE NEGOTIATION WITH THE ALLIES, IT IS AN INTERESTING COINCIDENCE THAT THE AREA BEING VISITED WOULD BE JAPAN.
5. ALLEN DULLES UTILIZED COURIERS TO COMMUNICATE WITH THE AXIS DURING HIS EFFORTS IN 1944-45, FIRST TO ESTABLISH FRAMEWORK FOR A NEGOTIATED SETTLEMENT AND THEN TO MOVE HIS ILLEGAL MONIES OUT OF CENTRAL AND EASTERN EUROPE. ONE OF THESE COURIERS WAS A FAKE EASTERN ORTHODOX BISHOP NAMED "CIKOTA", WHO FLEW INTO JAPANESE-OCCUPIED MANCHURIA DURING A TIME BEFORE THE USSR ACTUALLY DECLARED WAR ON JAPAN AND WAS, THEREFORE, STILL A NEUTRAL VIS A VIS JAPAN.
6. GEORGE BUSH WAS LISTED AS "MIA" AFTER HIS BAIL OUT OVER CHI CHI JIMA ON "SEPTEMBER 2, 1944".
A. IT IS UNCLEAR HOW THIS WAS ESTABLISHED, AS HE WAS NEVER OUT OF SIGHT OR KNOWLEDGE OF HIS SQUADRON
B. OFFICIAL MARINE RECORDS STATE THAT THERE WERE "NO ATTACKS AGAINST CHI CHI JIMA ISLAND BETWEEN JULY 4, 1944 AND FEBRUARY 1945." AND THE LOG OF THE USS FINNBACK, THE SUBMARINE WHICH PICKED UP GEORGE BUSH OFF OF CHI CHI JIMA, DOESN'T MENTION BUSH UNTIL OCTOBER 1944. MEANWHILE, THE SQUADRON COMMANDER LOG FOR THE CHI CHI JIMA RAID IS NOW UNDATED. EVIDENCE SUGGESTS THAT THIS DATE HAS BEEN REMOVED.
C. AFTER US MARINES WERE ON CHI CHI JIMA IN DECEMBER 1945, THEY FOUND HUGE, RADIO WAVE-BLOCKING VAULTS BUILT INTO THE SIDES OF THE VOLCANIC ISLAND. THE EXACT PURPOSE OF THESE FAULTS IS STILL UNKNOWN TO THIS DAY, AS ALL DIRECT SITE COMMANDERS COMMITTED HARA KIRI AND NO RECORD CAN BE FOUND IN JAPANESE RECORDS.
7. POWERFUL EVIDENCE NOW SUGGESTS THAT ROBERT MAXWELL, PUBLISHING MOGUL AND SEMI-BOGUS (AT THE END) "BILLIONAIRE" RAN ADS FOR "BOOKS" IN BRITAIN THAT ALLEGED SCANDALOUS THINGS ABOUT VARIOUS POLITICIANS THERE, IN ORDER TO "GET THEIR ATTENTION" AND INFLUENCE THEM. IN ADDITION, EVIDENCE AT THIS YOU TUBE VIDEO FOR THE DISCOVERY CHANNEL, PROVIDES POWERFUL EVIDENCE ROBERT MAXWELL WAS, INDEED, MURDERED BY PERSONS VERSED IN HOW TO ENGAGE IN SEAL-LIKE MOTORIZED RAFT MANEUVERS:
DISCOVERY "CONSPIRACY TV" ON THE ASSASSINATION OF ROBERT MAXWELL.
SO, THE READER SHOULD BE AWARE THAT, MYSELF HAVING HEARD SUCH AN AD, AND HAVING SOME EVIDENCE OTHERS HEARD IT ALSO, SUSPICION THAT IT WAS RUN BY MAXWELL IS QUITE POWERFUL. DISCOVERY TV CONCLUDES THAT THE DEATH WAS BY MOSSAD, BUT POWERFUL EVIDENCE ALSO SUGGESTS THERE IS A "ROGUE" ELEMENT AT MOSSAD, AS THERE CAN BE AT ANY WESTERN INTEL OPERATION, INCLUDING ROGUES AT NSA AND CIA. IT IS AN INTERESTING COINCIDENCE--ONE OF SEVERAL--THAT MAXWELL DIED IN 1991, DURING THE ADMINISTRATION OF GEORGE H.W. BUSH, WHO HAD LONG TIES TO THE OSS/CIA GOING BACK, APPARENTLY TO AT LEAST WW2.
WHAT I HAVE FOUND IMPOSSIBLE TO DO, IS TIE TOGETHER THESE VARIOUS BITS AND PIECES ENOUGH TO VERIFY THE ALLEGATION OF THE BOOK AD PER SE. BUT ALL OF THIS SUGGESTS WHAT I CALL "UNDERCURRENTS."
I am also endeavoring to edit sentences and phrases and also many web links that are now changed and non-working. I have been doing so, all along, but there have been a number of changes all at once recently--especially in light of the numerous deaths.
THERE DOES COME A TIME TO BEGIN TO PUT AN ISSUE ASIDE. FORMER PRESIDENT GHW BUSH IS ELDERLY AND IS AGING. THOUGH I HAVE HAD NO DATA TO COMPLETELY RULE OUT THE CLAIM MADE IN THE BOOK'S AD, AND THOUGH I CANNOT EVEN NOW SAY THIS BOOK DOES NOT EXIST, I FEEL I HAVE PUT ENOUGH TIME INTO THIS ISSUE.
. IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT A NUMBER OF ISSUES REMAIN UNRESOLVED REGARDING FINANCIAL MATTERS AND SCANDALS IN WHICH THE BUSH FAMILY WAS IMPLICATED, BUT THESE ARE THE TERRITORY OF OTHER JOURNALISTS. MY UNIQUE EFFORT, REFLECTED AT THIS SITE, HAS BEEN TO FIND SOME CONCLUSION, SOME ANSWER, TO THE QUESTIONS THAT GRADUALLY CREPT INTO MY MIND AFTER THE 1980 RADIO AD. I DID RECEIVE SOME CONFIRMATION THAT OTHER PERSONS HEARD THE 1980 RADIO AD. BUT I CANNOT GO FURTHER THAN THAT, EVEN AFTER MANY YEARS ATTEMPTING CLARIFICATION.
AS I HAVE ALREADY POINTED OUT HERE ON THIS SITE, LEGALLY ONE IS INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY. I CANNOT SAY THAT I HAVE BEEN "OVERWHELMINGLY' CONVINCED OF MR. BUSH'S GUILT OF THE CHARGE ALLEGED IN THE BOOK AD, FOR SOME TIME.
YET, I MUST ALSO CONFESS THAT I HAVE HAD MOMENTS, INCLUDING "AHA" MOMENTS, IN THIS RESEARCH, WHEN I HAVE WONDERED VERY STRONGLY ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF HIS GUILT. I CONTINUE TO BELIEVE THAT THERE WAS A SET OF EVENTS OR RECORDS--AND WE HAVE GLIMPSED A FEW OF THOSE HERE IN THE DECK LOGS AND CROSS-REFERENCED RESEARCH FINDINGS--THAT MAY HAVE INSPIRED, PERHAPS ON TOP OF STATEMENTS BY BUSH OR OTHER PERSONS HAVING BACKGROUNDS THAT MADE THEM SUSPICIOUS OF THE BUSH FAMILY--AND/OR CONTRIBUTED TO THE BOOK'S INITIAL CLAIM; WHILE ROBERT MAXWELL'S EFFORT TO INFLUENCE EVENTS IN THE US, AS HE HAD IN BRITAIN, VIA RUNNING "BOOK ADS" TO GET THE ATTENTION OF DESIRED POLS, COULD HAVE PRODUCED THE ODD AD.
THEREFORE, THE READER MAY SEE CHANGES AT THIS SITE.--MAX FAULKNER STANDRIDGE.(End of Update).
NOTE: THE FIRST SUCH CHANGE HAS NOW BEEN MADE, BUT I HAVE FOUND IT BEST TO INCLUDE THE LINK, NOTED ABOVE, TO DISCOVERY TV'S PROGRAM ABOUT THE ASSASSINATION/MURDER OF ROBERT MAXWELL, WHICH DOES STILL END UP RAISING ONE'S EYEBROWS IN THIS WHOLE AREA!
DISCLAIMER: This Site does not and cannot endorse any external site. It endeavors to be non-partisan and even non-ideological. --Max Standridge
NOTE TO READERS OF THE GEORGE BUSH-UNDERCURRENTS WEBSITE: This Site is always "under construction". A number of key persons who were sources to the original possible book, have now passed away. I will also be including new information that suggests more evidence of the book ad, the book claim, or various "undercurrents" as they happen in this regard.
The first such inclusion is the new link noted above to Disovery TV's story on the murder of Robert Maxwell.
Another change pertains to my referral of my Site readers to 911 conspiracy theory websites. A number of such sites have either been closed or discredited, and therefore I've corrected some pro and con links about an allegation that bin Laden met with CIA operatives in a Dubai hospital, and numerous other statements about 911 issues.
This is is no way a guarantee that there is nothing at all to any 911 conspiracy scenario or that all information about 911 was properly processed. One good example, is what ended up happening with a major allegation: that bin Laden met with CIA operatives while in a Dubai hospital being treated with kidney dialysis. What has discovered, even now, has had the effect of modifying, but not totally eliminating, the questions about bin Laden's ability to survive as long as he did.
Also implicated heavily, was the the Saudi "establishment", which sought "revenge" for the defiling placement of "infidel" US forces on Saudi soil by W. Bush's father during the first Gulf War. It's widely known that all of the 9/11 hijackers were Saudis, for example, and that Pakistan has been at best a murky ally in Afghanistan military ops. Osama bin Laden was never diagnosed with kidney disease, but was clearly under treatment for some medical condition. Photographs and videos show he was not in good health, and such extensive treatment would have required transport to a friendly hospital, and the closest potential site would have been Pakistan, so the CBS News story cited in these links does show some merit:
CBS News on bin Laden in Pakistan 9/11;
Therefore, vis a vis Pakistan: so long as we have a massive troop presence still in Afghanistan, even since bin Laden's death over two years ago (as of 10/13), we must "cooperate" with Pakistan. And, similarly, our strangulated need for the Saudi oil precludes a certain amount of honesty by our government.
Similarly, in this article containing a rather back and forth about bin Laden's health, we see some interesting different angles: Snopes back and forth on bin Laden being sick.
The overall suggestion is that the US government has not been completely candid as to what it has had to put up with out of Saudis and Pakistanis at times, and that there may have been a cover-up of this embarassing fact to ensure continuing public support for our uneasy alliances with them.
I will now list the important source persons and their deaths in rough chronological sequence:
Robert Maxwell, possible source of the radio ad of 1980;
apparently Brig. Gen. Russell S. Bowen, author of The Immaculate Deception the book I believe to be a "prime suspect" in the radio ad of 1980;
Brian Downing Quig;
Mr. Merrill T. See and Mr. Kenn N. Thomas, both of whom made reference to the radio ad in "Confirmation of Ad" further down on this Site;
Mr. Sherman Skolnick, whose article cited in Immaculate Deception was shortened in the newest version of that book, with elipses representing deleted material. I believed it was possible that Gen. Bowen had to remove that material because some of his own material that would have backed the additional claims, had been destroyed or otherwise lost;
Alexander Haig, former Secretary of State.
Because I have been unable to get further information or confirmation from each of these parties over several years time, and their deaths have now intervened, I can no longer in good conscience continue to pass along claims that have not hope of verification or confirmation due to the deaths of the claimants without further communication with me. Mr. Skolnick's recent death has been a virtual "death knell" since without hope of a communication from him, I can neither continue to post the claims made possible by his articles cited in Immaculate Deception nor even continue to cite articles that he wrote while he was alive, that have negative connotations about various person, and so will be pulling down links to those articles.
There were a number of interesting other perspective on the "Bush material" that I have not been able to pay much attention to, including:
1. The vaults on Chi Chi Jima Island, combined with Bush's being listed as "MIA" during the hours after his bail out over and near that island: this could be an indicator that he engaged in a top secret mission for US intelligence as an apparent OSS asset or agent. OSS would have definitely been interested in the vaults. The USS Finnback, the submarine that picked him up, didn't refer to him until October 1944, even though his bail out and pick up was evidently in September. Is it possible that the gap in dates was because the submarine was advised not to refer to Bush's presence for some period of time due to his involvement in a top secret mission. However, for this to continue to be covered up even until today, suggests it is unlikely unless there is that major cover-up of UFOs some allege--and that this involved a Japanese secret aircraft possibly being sought by both Dulles and the OSS and Forrestal and the ONI. (The other possibility being, of course, that Bush engaged in some illegal activity, something that inspired the book ad or claim of 1980.)
2. The disappearance of Bush's original crewmate, John Wyckes, in May 1944. Wyckes was flying the same type of aircraft as Bush, the Grumman Avenger torpedo bomber. This aircraft was also involved in one of the most famous--or infamous--aircraft disappearances in history, that of "Flight 19" off the coast of Florida in the eerie "Bermuda Triangle" area. The fact this group of aircraft has still to be located even after many searches, might raise an eyebrow as to the fate of Wyckes and his Avenger. Even aside from that, and even if one accepts a conventional explanation for Flight 19, the disappearance of Wyckes, on top of all the other questions about Bush, has to give one pause, though it constitutes no "overwhelming evidence" of anything.
3. It is entirely possible that Allen Dulles, who was an able spy and diplomat, whatever other qualities he had, may have created some "ruse" negotiations with an eye to weakening the Japanese in the Pacific, to an extent working with FDR's goal of victory. Such a ruse may have resulted in the somewhat bizarre and behavior of Japanese aircraft over the Philippines Sea in June, 1944. If carried out well enough, it may have inspired the Japanese emperor Hirohito--who my cross-referenced research has shown was a secret "dove" at that point in the conflict--to order an aircraft maneuver in response to the presence of a possible courier Dulles may have promised but not delivered.
It is an interesting possibility, but as with a possible Bush land reconnaissance of Chi Chi Jima island's secret vaults, the idea it would have continued to be covered up until this day, would be inexplicable with any but some complex "man made UFO" scenario.
I must remind the reader who may not have read my detailed research in the Bibliography, Annotated Bibliography and the updated anotated bibliography, that Bush's carrier's log remained classified longer than that of any other warship of the second world war, not being declassified until 1983, during the Reagan Admin. All other US warship logs of WW2 had been declassified in the 1960s in the Kennedy Admin. That, in turn, could suggest a private corporate group, privy to secret Allen Dulles negotiations, was active in determining the level of secret Japanese aircraft advances and possibly also interested in the Chi CHi Jima vaults.
Insofar as my current efforts, I can list some of them as still similar as earlier, even in the wake of numerous personal and family health issues that have made it difficult to maintain the desired academic quality of this research and web site.

Did the CIA have prior knowledge of the WTC crashes?Clinton and Bush Supreme Court appointees now allow CITIBANK to finance Hamas terrorism (Forbidden Truth NY: Nation, 2001. 56, 238 16, 17) with interest rates considered usury in most states. See (updated link:)Beneficial v. Anderson ruling at FindLaw.com.
UPDATE: visit here for new bank fines, including CITI's fine for funding al Qaeda terrorism. Is Bush's 8/04 NYC "terror alert" designed to help cover for CITI's embarassing terror funding? See: Bush/Clinton ties to CITI Board.
If CIA had prior knowledge of WTC, did it fail to act due to either (1) deliberate collusion or (2) incredible ineptitude? The latter is more "thinkable," but the "Prior Knowledge" site alleges a secret bin Laden visit to a Saudi hospital, where he met with the CIA, HERE.

Are we now seeing a repetition and expansion of what seems to have happened in 1984--the most massive surveillance of American Jews in history? According to John Loftus. Nuremburg prosecutor, and Mark Aarons, a respected Australian journalist, in The Secret War Against the Jews, (NY: St. Martin's. 1994) George H. W. Bush apparently placed virtually the entire American Jewish community under surveillance starting in May, 1984, using Britain's MI-6 in an intelligence swap operation. Read more about their disconcerting report on this alleged operation: Under Surveillance: The American Jewish Community, 1984 Was W.
