Time to explore the Bush/Saudi connection

Let the media feeding frenzy begin. Hopefully.

Top White House officials personally approved the evacuation of dozens of influential Saudis, including relatives of Osama bin Laden, from the United States in the days after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks when most flights were still grounded, a former White House adviser said today.
The allegations are made in the upcoming edition of Vanity Fair, and has been picked up by the New York Times. Sen. Schumer (the gods bless his soul) has already jumped on the revelations demanding an investigation.

Interestingly enough, this story first emerged immediately following the 9-11 attacks, but was relegated to tinfoil hat territory soon thereafter. Michael Moore has been working on a movie on this topic, with an ETA of September 2004. But aside from that, this story got no attention from the so-called "journalists" that infect our nation's newsrooms.

But there's nothing the press likes better than a good feeding frenzy, and they may have one here. Now we need all the Dem presidential candidates and Clark to help feed the story.
