(Washington, DC) Judicial Watch, the public interest law firm that
investigates and prosecutes government corruption and abuse, reacted with
disbelief to The Wall Street Journal report of yesterday that George H.W.
Bush, the father of President Bush, works for the bin Laden family business
in Saudi Arabia through the Carlyle Group, an international consulting firm.
The senior Bush had met with the bin Laden family at least twice. (Other top
Republicans are also associated with the Carlyle group, such as former
Secretary of State James A. Baker.) The terrorist leader Osama bin Laden had
supposedly been "disowned" by his family, which runs a multi-billion dollar
business in Saudi Arabia and is a major investor in the senior Bush's firm.
Other reports have questioned, though, whether members of his Saudi family
have truly cut off Osama bin Laden. Indeed, the Journal also reported
yesterday that the FBI has subpoenaed the bin Laden family business's bank
Judicial Watch earlier this year had strongly criticized President Bush's father's association with the Carlyle Group, pointing out in a March 5 statement that it was a "conflict of interest (which) could cause problems for America's foreign policy in Middle East and Asia." Judicial Watch called for the senior Bush to resign from the firm then.
"This conflict of interest has now turned into a scandal. The idea of the President's father, an ex-president himself, doing business with a company under investigation by the FBI in the terror attacks of September 11 is horrible. President Bush should not ask, but demand, that his father pull out of the Carlyle Group," stated Judicial Watch Chairman and General Counsel Larry Klayman.
"This has the potential of making 'Billygate' (Jimmy Carter's brother's dealings with Libya) look like small potatoes," added Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
