9/11 Report - The real Saudi Ties are U.S. Ties

9/11 Report - The real Saudi Ties are U.S. Ties

"Sources and Methods" by ewing2001 (Plus Updates)

Wednesday, July 30

On Monday, President Bush acted against the wishes of Saudi Arabia and a number of U.S. lawmakers, deciding not to declassify the now notorious missing 28 pages in the 9/11 Report.

"It would reveal sources and methods" (President Bush)

It is believed these pages might point to specific foreign sponsorship of the September 11th, 2001 attacks.

Bush seems to be less concerned with national security--the only legitimate reason for censorship--and more concerned with not providing lawmakers and journalists information that might lead them to a sobering question: What if the "Saudi ties" are in reality homegrown?

If Saudi ties find their knot in the U.S. then all current questions must be changed. No longer do we ask why the Saudi information is still classified, but which Saudi ties can be traced back to the United States? And who forced the classification? Who are these suspects President Bush is so scared to have mentioned?

Maybe they haven't been blacked out in the 9/11 Report, but "somewhere" else?

Here are some suggestions of which "Saudi" suspects should be asked first....

Vinnell

"It is important for us to hold this information close so that those who are being investigated aren’t alerted." (President Bush)

Vinnell, owned by the Carlyle Group (which has long-time ties to the Bush Family), this Virginia-based private military firm trains and advises the Saudi National Guard. Many of the 1,400 employees are ex-US Special Forces.

Vinell is working as a consultant with Advisory and Training.

The Saudi National Guard is connected with Vinnell since 1975..

In May 2003, the WP reported, said that Saudi authorities are investigating, "suspected illegal arms sales by members of the country's national guard to al Qaeda operatives in the country".

Vinnell is a subsidiary of TRW/Northrop Grumman. In 1992, Vinnell was taken over by the Carlyle Group, whose chairman was Ronald Reagan's former Defence Secretary, Frank Carlucci.

The question to the US President should be, How much does Vinnell know about these problems within the Saudi National Guard?

BDM

"There is a threat to the United States"(President Bush)

BDM (Falls Church, Virginia) provides logistics, training and intelligence to the Saudi Army and Air Force. BDM is yet another private defense contractor where the Carlyle Group had a major stake in. In 1998, Carlyle sold its controlling interest in BDM to TRW.

On the board of TRW is former CIA director Robert M. Gates and Michael H. Armacost, who served as Undersecretary of State under President Reagan and as Ambassador to Japan for former President Bush. Their influence in blocking embarrassing questions is pretty obvious.

According to a Boston Herald article from December 2001, in 1996 and 2000, BDM Federal won two contracts:

One, a $44.4 million deal to build housing at the Khamis Mushayt Military Base in Saudi Arabia, and the other, a $65 million contract to provide 845 personnel for maintenance of Saudi Arabia's fleet of U.S.-made F-15 fighter jets.

Booz-Allen Hamilton

"We’re doing a better job of sharing intelligence and collecting data, so we’re able to find, you know, able to anticipate" (President Bush)

Booz-Allen Hamilton (BAH), another global leader in strategy and technology consulting, runs the Military Staff College of Saudi Arabia. But BAH has its corporate headquarters in McLean, Virginia.

On August 15th, 2002, Dale Watson, former FBIHQ, went to work for Booz. No one ever complained that it was Watson who was unwilling to connect the dots during the increased warnings on a pending attack against America in Summer, 2001, and it is clear why: Watson formerly worked for the CIA and seems to have political support from their headquarter.

Booz Allen is also supported by ex-CIA director James Woolsey, who became Vice President of BAH on July 15th, 2002.

In May 2003, Consultant News and Navy Weeks reports, that the government of Saudi Arabia, awarded Booz Allen Hamilton with a sole-source contract for naval consulting work worth $7.9 million with options that could take it to $95.3 million.

Financial interests win out over political embarrassment. Getting Booz Allen Hamiliton involved in an investigation, seems more unrealistic than ever.

Shea + Gardner

"It would show people how we collect information and on whom we’re collecting information" (President Bush)

Through their website, law firm Shea & Gardner, they represented "a key United Technologies employee in a criminal investigation of alleged improper payments to members of the Saudi Arabian royal family"

Shea & Gardner was also James Woolsey's first business of choice after he left the CIA in 1995.
Current Deputy National Security Adviser, Stephen J. Hadley, was a partner there prior to joining the Bush Administration. The ties between Shea & Gardner and the US Government are strong and obvious.

Interestingly, Shea & Gardner is registered as a "Foreign Agent" for the Iraqi National Congress.

Among their current clients are Bank of America, Boeing Company, Chubb Group of Insurance Companies, CSX, Dana Corporation, Ernst & Young, General Electric, ITT Industries, Janus, Lockheed Martin, Rockwell Automation, SAKS, United States Aviation Underwriters and Veriz.

Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld

"If people are being investigated, it doesn't make sense for us to let them know who they are." (President Bush)

Akin/Gump is another US law firm, who represents Saudi businessmen. Here we find arguably the most embarrassing U.S. connection, which the Bush Administration covers up under the pretext of a “pending investigation." Bush washes this over, stating that the “enemy” need not know what is classified. But who is the enemy?

Akin/Gump represents at least two suspects mentioned in pending lawsuits filed by family members of the victims of 9/11:

Former director of BCCI, Khalid bin Mahfouz, and Mohammed Hussein Al-Amoudi .

Khalid bin Mahfouz’s’ sister, Kaleda, is one of Osama bin Laden's wives.

More embarrassingly, bin Mahfouz (formerly connected with Bush’s first company, Arbusto) also had stakes in Tom Kean’s company Amarada Hess. Kean is current head of the 9/11 Commission.

In addition, Akin/Gump represents the largest Islamic charity in the United States, Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, based in Richmond, Texas. The FBI had been investigating this charity, when its efforts were suddenly blocked by an as yet undisclosed governmental power.

Partners at Akin Gump include one of President Bush's closest Texas friends, James C. Langdon, and George R. Salem, a Bush fundraiser.

SAIC

"It would help the enemy if they knew our sources"(President Bush)

SAIC is the nation's largest employee-owned research and engineering company, providing information technology, systems integration and eBusiness products and services to commercial and government customers. SAIC is not only working as a private military contractor for the Pentagon, but also for the CIA. SAIC supports the navy and air defenses of Saudi Arabia (C4 systems for the Royal Saudi Naval Forces program).

SAIC and its subsidiaries, including Telcordia Technologies, have more than 41,000 employees at offices in more than 150 cities worldwide.

American Consulate in Jeddah

"Perhaps we can put out the document" (President Bush)

According to J. Michael Springmann , former chief of the visa section at the US Consulate in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, the Consulate was mainly controlled by the CIA. Springmann complained about intelligence officers, who regularly expedited U.S. visa applications from Saudi applicants. It is now public knowledge that 15 of the 19 hijackers obtained their visas from Saudi Arabia, most of them in Jeddah, yet the 9/11 Report remains silent on this issue.

Regardless, the original visa applications are available online and have been featured in the pages of the conservative paper, National Review.

Al-Bayoumi and Osama Basnan

The 9/11 Report mentions that two of the official hijackers, Khalid Almidhar and Nawaf Alhazmi received money from Saudi Arabia's royal family through two Saudis: Omar al-Bayoumi and Osama Basnan. What the report fails to point out is that Al-Bayoumi was assistant to the Director of Finance for Dallah Avco, a US company that worked with the Saudi aviation authority. This is relevant because Al-Bayoumi was accused of being an agent for Saudi Intelligence.

As for Osama Basnan, he was living in California when the Saudi Embassy sent him $15,000 to pay a “surgical bill” for his wife.

The terrorist financial ties tracing back to United States are countless. But since we’re here, we might as well keep counting….

Kroll O’Gara Hess + Eisenhardt

Kroll O’ Gara Eisenhardt is one of the oldest security companies in the United States and, some say, responsible for every U.S. President since the end of WW2. What does an upstanding, powerful company like Kroll do in its spare time? Why it trains local forces in Saudi Arabia, of course!

One partner of Kroll, Cable & Wireless provides training in Counter-Terrorism and Urban Warfare in Saudi Arabia. In August 2001, former Kroll employee, Jerome Hauer, arranged a security job in the Twin Towers for FBI Agent John O’Neill. At the time, O’Neill had been investigating ENRON’s business deals with the Taliban and was subsequently pulled from that investigation. Neither Kroll nor Hauer was asked to testify about this coincidence.

Prince Turki al Faisal

Former Saudi Intelligence Head, Prince Turki al Faisal, who resigned only a few days before September 11th, is another shady character who has yet to testify. Al Faisal is known for having had close relations with Osama bin Laden.

It is interesting to note the endless conflict within the Saudi family. The family breaks down into two general factions:

1) The al-Sudairy faction led by King Fahd and Defense Minister Sultan. It is they who profit and gain power from the Saudi alliance with the United States.

2) The religious coalition of half-brothers led by the aging Crown Prince Abdullah, whose piety is backed by alliances with Wahhabi religious leaders.

Prince Turki worked with the Argentine oil company Bridas, while Prince Abdullah worked with the Saudi company Delta Oil, part of the US-backed consortium headed up by Unocal.

***

Finally, the involvement of private U.S. military contractors (passively or actively) with terrorists can no longer be ignored. The most popular private military contractors are MPRI, Halliburton Brown + Root, L3, and DynCorp, all of which had contracts with Saudi Arabia.

All of the preceding information can be found in the news archives of various internet sites. It is public knowledge and none of it risks national security. In a move that would make Monty Python blush, President Bush decided not to declassify information that is already available to the average sleuth. The result is, the mainstream media will not pick up on any of this “classified” information and the majority of Americans not inclined to research anything on their own will eat the spoon-fed spin of their favorite networks. You can look for that spin to go something like this:

Saudi Arabia is a base for Al-Quaeda. We thought they were our friends but they said one thing in our language and another thing in their own. The major financiers of terrorism reside in Saudi Arabia.

Once this becomes doctrine, the PNAC cabal headed by Douglas Feith, Richard Perle and Paul Wolfowitz will start promoting their biggest dream: a winner-takes-all invasion of Saudi Arabia. This is a dream wet in oil and blood.


Editor's Note: Thanks for all the positive response, visits and comments.

(This story was recently also mirrored in England, at thetruthseeker.co.uk)

I also got more infos in from one of our guest editors, Flori06:

The Sudairi are the Al-Faisals. THEY are Wahhabi and are affiliated with Muslim Brothers. The brothers control the ministries of Saudi Arabia: Prince Turki Al-Faisal (intell 1977 - 8/31/01; currently ambassador to Britain); Prince Sultan Al-Faisal

(defense; chairman of Saudia Airlines); Prince Saud Al-Faisal (foreign minister); Prince Nayef Al- Faisal (Interior); Prince Mohamed

Al-Faisal (deputy in interior). Saudi ambassador to U.S. is the son-in-law of Prince Sultan -- his daughter is Haifa Al-Faisal, wife of Prince Bandar.

Fahd's "decisions" have also been the decisions of his second wife, Rawahara.

Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Ibrahim al Ibrahim -- implicated via his Abul Aziz bin Ibrahim Foundation in providing bomb to blow up U.S. embassy in Nairobi in 1998; another of his foundation employees arrested last March at London's Gateway Airport with live grenade in luggage; likely owner of biggest blood diamond trading firm ... etc. He runs Fahd's money .....

From Robert Baer's "Sleeping with the Devil":

On the power of Jawahara:

p. 23

Things might be better if Saudi Arabia wr some romantic kingdom ruled by a wise, benevolent king and a royal family with a sense of noblesse oblige. But it isn't. Starting at the top, King Fahd is close to bran-dead, incapacitated by a 1995 stroke.

This became clear late that year hen Fahd shit in his pool during physical therapy, in front of his family. Crown Prince Abdullah supposedly fills in for Fahd, his half brother, but he has no real power. He is mistrusted and despised by the senior princes -- the cabinet ministers (read Al-Faisals including Turki - intell, now Am. to Britan); Saud - foreign minister; Sultan - defense minister; Mohammed - a position in interior who in turn are uncles to Princess Haifa who is Sultan's daughter as I recall, and Am of U.S. Bandar's wife). Sudairi 7.

Wahabbi and most likely also keepers of Muslim Brothers in Saudi Arabia. PART IN QUOTES IS MY ADDITION FOR CLARIFICATION) -- and his authority is checked at every opportunity.

Fahd's favorite wife, Jawahara al-Ibrahim, and her spoiled, megalomanic son 'Abd-al Azia - Azouzi, or "dreary," as Fahd calls him -- actually run Saudi Arabia. Jawhara alone has twenty-four hour a day access to Fahd. She decides who will see him and who won't, which decrees he will see and which he won't. For all practical purposes, she sets the general course of Saudi internal and external policy. For all we know, she states how much oil will be pumped or completely cut off.

Dementia, palace intrigues, and jealousy are nly the start of the Al Sa'ud story. The Al Sa'ud are as violwnt and vengeful as any Mafia family. The first Saudi to write a book citical of the kingdom was kidnapped in Beirut and presumably murdered in the early 1970s. I learned, after I let the CIA, that in the mid-1990s, Na'if was behind at least two attempts on the life of Muhammad al-Masari, the leader of he London-based Committee for the Defense of Legitimate rights. ....

On commission skimmed from arms and other sales

p. 174

Needless to say, Fahd received his consideration. Since he didn't want his hands dirtied by the money, he let Jawhara's brothers and half brothers handle it for him. The IBRAHIMS as they were called were good at it. they had been raking off commissions unseen for much of the kingdom's history. Through the 1980s and early 1990s, if you wanted an arms deal, you had to see the Ibrhims. If your construction company was ailing an you neeed to be cut in to some government public works project, you went to see the Ibrahims.

Normally, facts abut the Ibrhim deals are hard to come by. but on December 12, 1997, Abd-al Aziz (THE SHEIKH OF WHOM I WRITE RE: STARWOOD, POLESTAR LIMITED, ETC) brought legal action against Rolls Royce in London, claiming that the company, which had supplied the engines for the Tornados, had reneged on a commissions agreement with his own firm, Aerospace Engineering Design. Like the Boeing suit, this one makes for fascinatig reading if you're interest in how corruption works in the Middle East ...

p. 175

By the mid- to late 1990s, the otal amount of oil (skimmed) going to off-budget programs was about a million barrels a day, a sixth of Saudi Arabia's exports. At current prices, that meant aui Arabia was hemorrhaging something like $30 million a day.

With the money out from under Sudi Aramco control, anyone with enough clout coul pillage as much as he wanted. That's what happened with Old Mecca. Key government ministers and their Wahhabi allies would decide that one more part of the historic site needed to be torn down and rebuilt.

The government then would order Aramco to put aside, say $100 million, and the royal family woul send a check to the Bakr bin Laden group, commissining the work. But rather than have the full $100 million go to construction, somewhere on the order of 90 percent went back to the senior princes, charities, and Wahhabi clerics. Everybody walked away a winner ...

Well, almost -- the average schmuck on the street didn't get a penny, but he could always go to Mecca or te other thousands of Bakr bin Laden-bult mosques and pray (for free) for better days.


On Saudi-US Chase-Hamas Ties

SHOW: LIVE FROM THE HEADLINES 19:00

Transcript # 073104CN.V94

SECTION: News; International

LENGTH: 514 words

HEADLINE: Interview With Former Israeli Ambassador Dore Gold

GUESTS: Dore Gold

BYLINE: Paula Zahn

HIGHLIGHT: Former Israeli Ambassador Dore Gold discusses the charge being made that Saudi Arabia is supporting the terror group Hamas.

BODY:

PAULA ZAHN, CNN ANCHOR: Right now, I'm joined from Washington by Dore Gold. Gold is a former Israeli ambassador to the United Nations and a researcher of terrorist financing. He testified on Capitol Hill today.

Always good to see you. Welcome.

DORE GOLD, FORMER ISRAELI AMBASSADOR TO UNITED NATIONS: Pleasure, Paula.

ZAHN: Let's talk a little bit about your testimony and the specific charge that Saudis are supporting the terror group Hamas. What is the basis for your claim?

GOLD: Well, there's really ongoing evidence, much of it seized by Israel from West Bank cities during Operation Defensive Shield last year.

We have, for example, checks from the Al Rajhi bank and Chase Manhattan in the United States. We have payment schedules of the International Islamic Relief Organization, some $280,000 to 14 Hamas fronts in the West Bank and Gaza. And, finally, we have the testimony of the No. 2 man in the PLO, in the Palestinian Authority, the now prime minister of the Palestinians, Mahmoud Abbas, or Abu Mazen.

ZAHN: Let me ask you this. Do you believe the Saudi support for Hamas has increased since September 11, 2001?

GOLD: Well, unfortunately -- we had hoped -- actually, I should start by saying that we had hoped that, after May 12, the Saudis had a wakeup call after that triple bombing in Riyadh. And we had seen the Saudis very active in trying to deal with the terrorist threat at home.

But, unfortunately, the overwhelming evidence at present is that the Saudis are supporting Hamas to the tune of 50 or maybe as much as 70 percent of the Hamas budget and that the Saudi portion of Hamas support is, in fact, growing.

ZAHN: And you no doubt have seen how high-ranking Saudis are reacting to some of what you have said over the last couple of days.

We're going to put up on the screen something that Prince Bandar is quoted as saying: "Dore Gold has carried on a campaign of lies and unsubstantiated accusations. His goal" -- here we go -- "his goal is to malign the Saudi government and drive a wedge between the United States and Saudi Arabia. Ironically, this is the very same objective shared by Osama bin Laden."

Your reaction to that?

GOLD: Well, Bandar was invited to the hearing today and refused to attend. The same is true of Adel Jubeir. So they had their opportunity to respond to me in substance and not just try and get involved in character assassination.

I would like to see better U.S.-Saudi relations. I would like to see Saudi Arabia fulfill its commitments to President Bush made in June of this year in Sharm el-Sheikh, when they told President Bush that they would cut all terrorist financing. Unfortunately, they're not living up to their commitments and they're undermining the peace process and President Bush's road map to peace.

ZAHN: We are going to have to end on that note.

Dore Gold, thank you so much for your perspective tonight.

He’s in bed with bin laden! (Score:1)
by tonie61 on Thursday July 31, @12:01PM (#12)
User #138 Info | Last Journal: http://web.archive.org/web/20031209170000/http://new.globalfreepress.com/journal.pl?op=display&uid=138
He’s in bed with bin laden and he is trying to suppress the Sept. 11 Congressional report 28 pages dealing with his complicity. Wasn’t this dunce’s claim that he “would return honor and dignity to the White House”? The only way that will happen is when he goes. Unfortunately, too many weak and defenseless Iraq1s will die, and too many of our fine soldiers will have to suffer in this horrible occupation.
 
In the run-up to the Iraq War we were frequently told that 43’s team had “secret information” but because “sources and methods” could not be exposed, the information could not be shared.  That was just another lie, as “sources and methods” certainly could be exposed when 43 had a fit of pique.
 
Two senior Bush administration officials blew the cover of a US intelligence officer working covertly in a field of vital importance to national security. Under the Intelligence Identities Protection Act of 1982, it is a crime for anyone who has access to classified information to disclose intentionally information identifying a covert agent. Members of both parties indicated a congressional investigation is likely in this matter.
 
Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.), vice chairman of the intelligence panel said a probe is probably necessary and accused the White House of strong-arm tactics aimed at those who question their policies. "To go after him [Wilson] is one thing, but to go after his wife is another thing," he said. Both are reprehensible.
 
He has to take the responsibility for his administration’s evil destruction of a covert agent’s networks-—a euphemism for people’s lives, that 43’s team has destroyed.
 
The Sept. 11 attacks were preventable, a Congressional report released on July 24th 2003 says. The report redacted 28 pages relating to Saudi Arabia.
 
How he plays around with “sources and methods”. To cover-up his connection with Saudi Arabia Bush said that "declassification of that part of a 900-page document would reveal sources and methods that would make it harder for us to win the war on terror."
 
He won’t let us see this even though Saudi officials sought the release of the still-classified section of the report, which was denounced today by the Saudi foreign minister, Prince Saud al-Faisal, as an "outrage" that "wrongly and morbidly" accused Saudi Arabia of complicity in the attacks.
 
Invoking the provisions of a seldom-used Senate resolution, Bob Graham said he asked the chairman of the Intelligence Committee, Senator Pat Roberts, Republican of Kansas, and the top Democrat on the committee, Senator John D. Rockefeller IV, to start a process that permits the declassification of information if the Senate voted to release it — even over the objections of the administration.
 
I’d hate to be anyone in the U.S. who had any relations with Saudi Arabians. Guess who has such a relationship, not only with peripheral Saudis but with one who is bin laden’s brother in law, as well as bagman?
 
In the January 31, 2003 article, “Global Eye -- Kean Insight” by Chris Floyd, he wrote about retired New Jersey Governor Thomas Kean and 43 sharing an unsavory business partner. Floyd, quoting another source, wrote, “Fortune Magazine reports this week that both Kean and Bush share an unusually well-placed business partner: one  Khalid bin Mahfouz -- perhaps better known as "Osama bin Laden's bagman" or even "Osama bin Laden's brother-in-law." He continues that, “Kean is a director of Amerada Hess, an oil giant married up to Saudi Arabia's Delta Oil in a venture to pump  black gold in Azerbaijan. (The partnership is naturally incorporated in a secretive offshore "tax haven". One of those cut-outs was Mahfouz factotum James Bath, a partner in Dubya's early oil venture, Arbusto, who has admitted serving as a pass-through for secret Saudi money. It is easy to keep connecting the dots when you see that years later, when Bush's maladroit business skills were about to sink another of his companies, Harken Energy, the firm was saved by a $25 million investment from a Swiss bank -- a subsidiary of the Bank of Credit and Commerce International, partly owned by the beneficent Mahfouz. The U.S. Senate labeled BCCI as, "one of the largest criminal enterprises in history". It doesn’t end there as Floyd concludes that, “Somehow we doubt that worthy Kean will poke very hard at the nexus of intersections between his own business partner, Mahfouz, and the bin Ladens, the Bushes, the Saudi royals, Saddam, the CIA and BCCI.” 43 rewards flunkies who have passed him money through, an impossible to estimate, number of money laundering schemes. That is why he named Kean as Kissinger's 9-11 Investigation replacement. 43’s motives are always disreputable, so how can we trust this Iraq 2 to be anything other than a money making bonanza for 43 and his soul-mates.
 
It is mind boggling but you see that 43 hasn’t taken responsibility for his sixteen words, although he takes all of the credit for the Iraq War, which he has told the doting public he has won. The sad thing is that we have our young men and women, as well as Iraqi defenseless citizens, collateral damage, dying there daily in the terrible Iraqi occupation. This sequel to “Shock and Awe” for all the world doesn’t look like a victory. The fool’s swore that they had to protect “sources and methods”, but when they became enraged at Wilson for being honest, they ignored that and blew the cover of a US intelligence officer working covertly, Wilson’s wife. The Congressional report Sept. 11 had 28 redacted pages about Saudi Arabia’s link to bin Laden’s terrorists. 43’s team doesn’t want this information released even though all of the interested parties want the public to have access to it. WHY? He is too tightly involved with Saudi Arabian’s, including Osama bin Laden's brother-in-law. His team has control of the 9-11 Investigation, with 43’s business partner Thomas Kean being named as its head.

ewing2000 forgot to add the company called SRI International.

Those people are full of death in their hands. Their main "research" fields are Nuclear Energy (i.e. things that go booom), and Biochemical/Genetic Engineering (i.e. HIV)

and they are primary republican contractors.

User #3 Info
Thanks also here for all valuable extra informations. While i was writing my article i decided to concentrate on the most "popular" companies. However, i'm aware, the list much longer. There are for sure also "harmless" business ties between US and the Saudis, so that we have to take care, where we point to. But the military complex is for sure the most troubling part. Thx for the Info on SRI. Their profile at http://www.sri.com/about/board.html is interesting

How do 28 BLANK pages prove Saudi complicity in anything?
Do you people have a secret decoder ring or is it written in special invisible ink that only some people can read?
The only thing that leads people to say these pages concern Saudi Arabia is because somebody said they do. I personally don't believe a damn thing that comes out of the government or the media. If they say it concerns the Saudis then, quite frankly, I believe it doesn't have anything to do with the Saudis.
Chances are greater in my opinion that these pages have information that puts Israel in a bad light in regards and THAT is why they were blanked out. Everyone goes along with helping the misadminstration by jumping on the bandwagon that the BLANK PAGES are concerning Saudi Arabia because the lying US Government or media implies they do.
If these blank pages PROVE Saudi involvement so clearly, why do the Saudis want them released? And why won't the administration release them per the Saudi requests?
National Security my eye, more like Bush/Israeli cover their asses.

"The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic State itself. That, in its essence, is Fascism — ownership of government by an individual, by a group or by any controlling private power."
