House of Bush House of Saud

Author(s): Craig Unger

Current Affairs

Arguing that seeds for the 'Age of Terrorism' and 9/11 were planted nearly 30 years ago, Craig Unger probes with scores of documents and sources into the Bush-Saudi connection via companies such as the Carlyle group that, apart from Bush Sr, counts John Major as one of its advisors. He exposes the opaque corporate relationships between these astonishingly powerful families and reveals a devastating story of Orwellian proportions replete with political deception, shifting allegiances, and lethal global consequences. Revealing that 15 of the 19 9/11 terrorists were Saudis, he questions the efficacy of the war in Iraq in the battle against terrorism, ending with an Al Qaeda leader identifying two Bin Ladens and a Saudi Prince on the repatriation plane as the organisation's contacts with the Saudi royal family. In order to uncover this amazing weave of Saud-Bush connections, Unger relies on his interviews with three former directors of the CIA, top Saudi and Israeli intelligence officials, and more than one hundred other sources.His access to major players is unparalleled and often exclusive - including executives at the Carlyle Group, the giant investment firm where the House of Bush and the House of Saud each has a major stake.
