How one man's investigation has blown the lid off of Saudi Arabia's partnership with Osama bin Laden
A new story that reads more like a Tom
Clancy novel, Time magazine reports this week
on how one man's investigation has blown the
lid off of Saudi Arabia's partnership with Osama
This week, TIME magazine
reports on Gerald Posner's book, "Why America Slept: The Failure to Prevent
book's title may borrow from a John
Kennedy work, "Why America
Slept" exposes intrigue, deception
and possibly murder inside the house
of Saudi. And proves once and for

One 43-year-old prince had a mysterious heart attack, a
second prince died the next day in a high-speed car
accident, and the next week, the third prince died-get
Meanwhile, American leaders who continue believing
they can fight our War on Terror without seeing the Saudis
for who they really are, are compromising America's
That's why it is important that the White House
releases the entire 9/11 report. Even the 26 pages that are
