Al Gore Event Funded by Bin Laden's Family
The Saudi Arabia seminar that was addressed by former Vice President Al Gore over the weekend in a speech that criticized the U.S. for being too tough on Arabs was sponsored, in part, by Osama bin Laden's family.
On Saturday, the state-run Saudi news outlet Arab News reported that the Jeddah Economic Forum, where Gore spoke, was funded by "Saudi Arabian Airlines, the Saudi Binladin Group, Gulf One Investment Bank, Saudi Basic Industries Corp." and an array of other big companies with ties to the Middle East.
The Saudi BinLadin Group - which is Saudi Arabia's largest construction company - is run by Osama bin Laden's brothers and cousins. Jeddah, the site of the forum attended by Gore, is Osama bin Laden's hometown.
Although family members claim they've disowned bin Laden, his mother told reporters after the 9/11 attacks that she received advanced warning from him that something big was about to happen.
A wealthy bin Laden niece also reportedly abandoned her lower Manhattan apartment three weeks before the 9/11 attacks.
The BinLadin Group's longtime involvement in the Jeddah forum has been widely reported in the Mideast and European press.
In January 2002, ex-President Clinton addressed the JEF, which paid him $267,000 for his speech. According to London's Financial Times:
"The conference was dominated by the Saudis' desire to overcome the pressures of September 11 and strengthen U.S.-Saudi ties . . . The BinLadin Group, one of the forum's backers, has been battered by its association with Osama."

I can't wait until tomorrow to watch Katie and Matt tear Albore a new one. She will have her intellectual glasses on and Matt will spray his head for the occasion. Oh wait, it's Bushes fault.
Can some explain to me just why they would want Al Gore to speak? A bit over my head here.
Al Gore, the 'alif male.
A-ha! It's ali-gorba, and the forty thieves!
What a pathetic excuse of a man....and Clinton too...he made $267,000 pandering to these people...
They must LOVE him...since he turned down taking Bin Ladin in custody on numerous occasions...and Gore as well, since he was in the VP office.
If this family is anti-Bin Ladin...then why aren't THEY questioning Clinton/Gore about their lack of attention the problems that Bin Ladin was creating???
It should be clear to everyone that Al Gore is a Republican mole whose job it is to insure the election of Republican presidents.
And where were Bubba and Algore on 9/11?
It's Karl Rove behind the scene....evil manipulating.
Why is this not HEADLINE NEWS ..This is MAJOR in my book..Imagime if it was Bush you spoke at an affaif sponsored by OBL's family...We MUST shout this from the rooftops..
Will someone please revoke that nut-jobs passport and assign him to Bellvue!!!!
