I hate to post anything from the conservative group, Judicial Watch, but this story needs to get widespread coverage...which it isn't:
Judicial Watch Releases New FBI Documents: Osama bin Laden May Have Chartered Saudi Flight Out of U.S. after 9/11
(Washington, DC) -- Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, today released new documents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (“FBI”) related to the “expeditious departure” of Saudi nationals, including members of the bin Laden family, from the United States following the 9/11 attacks. According to one of the formerly confidential documents, dated 9/21/2001, terrorist Osama bin Laden may have chartered one of the Saudi flights.
The document states: “ON 9/19/01, A 727 PLANE LEFT LAX, RYAN FLT #441 TO ORLANDO, FL W/ETA (estimated time of arrival) OF 4-5PM. THE PLANE WAS CHARTERED EITHER BY THE SAUDI ARABIAN ROYAL FAMILY OR OSAMA BIN LADEN…THE LA FBI SEARCHED THE PLANE [REDACTED] LUGGAGE, OF WHICH NOTHING UNUSUAL WAS FOUND.” The plane was allowed to depart the United States after making four stops to pick up passengers, ultimately landing in Paris where all passengers disembarked on 9/20/01, according to the document.
Overall, the FBI’s most recent document production includes details of the six flights between 9/14 and 9/24 that evacuated Saudi royals and bin Laden family members. The documents also contain brief interview summaries and occasional notes from intelligence analysts concerning the cursory screening performed prior to the departures. According to the FBI documents, incredibly not a single Saudi national nor any of the bin Laden family members possessed any information of investigative value.

As you stated Lizzy, this story needs to get widespread coverage.
We don't need to end up saying we didn't know or another CIA person is brought out in the open.
Impeach the SOB just on that story.
Things just keep getting curiouser and curiouser.
Who Hijacked Our Country
Good post, Lizzy. Hopefully this story will get some play.
I've said it before and yes I'll say it again.
Somebody left the gate open for the lions and it was deliberate.
Lizzy, I'd heard about this before - that the royals were allowed to fly out, but I hadn't heard that bin Laden may have chartered the plane(s)! The royal family supposedly severed all ties with Osama long ago, but ya hafta wonder ...
And you're great for pointing this out - why in the HELL isn't this getting widespread news coverage!
More and more unbelievable stuff comes out all the time. How much longer will the apologists be able to continue making excuses for the Bush/Cheney administration without looking even more stupid than they already do?
I've had about all I can take from this admin, and then some. Every few days we learn of another scandal...or something worse like this.
Impeach, impeach, impeach.
I agree with Damien, that story should be enough evidence.
