Tony Blair, bin Laden, Carlyle Group, Halliburton.


The Bush family and the bin Ladens are linked to the Carlyle Group.
Tony Blair may go to work for Carlyle.
What links are there between UK politicians and Halliburton?
Where might the Israeli-Russian Mafia come into all this?

The Wall Street Journal, September 28-29 2001, reported:

"Mr. bin Laden's family... is an investor in a fund established by the Carlyle Group."

Linked to the Carlyle group, according to the Wall St. Journal, are the Bush family and other top Republicans.

"In recent years, former U.S. President George Bush, ex-Secretary of State James Baker and ex-Secretary of Defense Frank Carlucci have made the pilgrimage to the bin Laden family's headquarters in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia...

"A Carlyle executive said the bin Laden family committed $2 million through a London investment arm in Carlyle Partners II Fund...

"But a foreign financier with ties to the bin Laden family says the family's overall investment with Carlyle is considerably larger. He called the $2 million merely an initial contribution. again."

Wayne Madsen, 2004-11-01, wrote:

"Bin Laden, whose family was aided by the Bush’s during the 1970s and 1980s in acquiring airports, aircraft, secret bank accounts, front companies, and real estate throughout Texas for the purpose of weapons smuggling and money laundering, came through for Bush by launching the very kind of “Pearl Harbor-level” attack called for by Bush’s ideological allies serving with the Israeli-Russian Mafia-funded Project for the New American Century (PNAC).

"Bin Laden financial help to Bush’s various failed oil ventures, including Arbusto, Spectrum 7 and Harken totaled $1 million over the years.

"Dick Cheney, whose wife Lynne receives Israeli-Russian Mafia funds to support her $125,000 chair at the American Enterprise Institute, immediately used the 911 attacks to consolidate the Bush regime’s hold on power, generate windfall war profits for his old company Halliburton and take the nation’s attention of the biggest corporate collapse in the history of the United States -- the Enron implosion."

"TONY Blair... is being lined up for a highly lucrative position with the Carlyle Group - an American-based investment giant with strong links to the White House and the defence industry...

"Sources in the City have revealed that he is "seriously considering" a high-profile role with Carlyle...

"Last night one leading City source said: "Private equity firms don't come any more powerful than Carlyle.

"At one time, Carlyle's multi-million pound investors included Saudi members of the... family of ...Osama bin Laden."



"British firms have been virtually shut out from getting in on the action, and have lost out to Halliburton and Bechtel..."


The UK's Ministry of Defence and Halliburton,11026,1553984,00.html

On the 22 August 2005, the Guardian reported that:

1. UK defence ministers wanted to build docks to refit nuclear-powered submarines.

2. They were warned that there were doubts about the competence of a firm called DML which is partly owned by Halliburton.

3. The UK defence ministers gave the contract to DML.

The estimated cost of the project then nearly doubled to more than £900m.

Halliburton is linked to the US vice-president, Dick Cheney.

The contract has been described as "probably the largest nuclear construction project in Europe in recent times".

In a previously secret evaluation of DML, MoD officials concluded that the firm failed eight of the 10 criteria measuring its competence, and the company should not be "considered a suitable organisation to be awarded the contract".

In 1997, the Ministry of Defence, under the Tory defence secretary Michael Portillo, awarded Halliburton the contract.
