Not that anyone on the right will notice, but Michael Moore was right

Right on the charge of the Bush Administration/FBI assisting members of the Saudi Royal Family escape in the wake of 9/11 as charged in Moore's Fahrenheit 911 film.

The FBI gave "well-connected" Saudi families escorts to the airport after the Sept. 11 attacks, the New York Times reported Sunday, citing government documents.

Two Saudi Arabian families and several citizens were escorted by FBI officials and flew home without being interviewed, the newspaper said, citing documents from the U.S. Justice Department newly obtained by Judicial Watch, a legal watchdog, and given to the Times.

Some of the escorted Saudis were relatives of Osama bin Laden, the newspaper said. The documents showed one of the flights departed on Sept. 14, 2001, from Providence, R.I., and included a member of the Saudi royal family, the newspaper said. The U.S. government began allowing flights on Sept. 13, 2001, although most were still grounded.

An unidentified FBI official told the newspaper that the agency would assist "anybody if they felt they were threatened," the newspaper said, while in 2003, the agency "reacted angrily" to suggestions that Saudis received preferential treatment, the newspaper said.

Somehow, I doubt this will be mentioned by ERNEST T. BASS, ESQ. or the Intersection of Cult of Personality Street & Blinders Avenue.
