  •  Damn, I like this vision of the theft... (12+ / 0-)

      It makes what Saddam Hussein did with the Oil for Food program seem tame. Even at today's prices, this is alot of Saudi oil being transferred to Bandar. I wonder how many palms it had to grease (no pun intented, here). In the same fashion that Reagan used the off the books money from weapons sales to Iran to fund war in Central America, you have to question if some of these funds ended up going to Osama to keep his supporters happy and outside the Kingdom. Again, remember that this started as thousands of Arabs were going into Afghanistan to fight those evil Soviets. We may have agreed to this funnelling of funds through a US bank knowing that it would go to support Osama to do our dirty work for us.
