Tangled Ties

Law-enforcement officials follow the money trail among suspected terrorists straight to the doors of the Saudi Embassy.

April 7 - Within weeks of the September 11 terror attacks, security officers at the Fleet National Bank in Boston had identified “suspicious” wire transfers from the Saudi Embassy in Washington that eventually led to the discovery of an active Al Qaeda “sleeper cell” that may have been planning follow-up attacks inside the United States, according to documents obtained by NEWSWEEK.

U.S. law-enforcement officials familiar with the matter say there is no evidence that officials at the Saudi Embassy were knowingly financing Al Qaeda activity inside the country. But documents show that while trying to trace a tangled money trail beginning with the Saudi Embassy, investigators soon drew startling connections between a group of Saudi nationals receiving financial support from the embassy and a 34-year-old microbiologist and MIT graduate who officials have since concluded was a U.S. operative for 9/11 mastermind Khalid Shaikh Mohammed.

This is a huge story with serious consequences and there has been virtually no mention about it.

HELLO!!
We "proper Bostonians" have known this for awhile! However, one must ask one's self this question...
"How many Idiots does it take to elect Senator Kennedy, "Flip Flop'", and "Mumbles"? We don't care!
We have "Havhud" and "MIT", we are smarter than you all!
"How many Bin Ladens can fill a legally flying Plane on 9/13/01?"
We don't care! We have the Bahston Globe to cover for the above!
1. The Manslaughter Man ( God Bless MaryJoKopechne 8/69)
2. The American Gigolo ( The US Forces slaughtered
the "peaceful" Viet Cong Army circa 1971 Just ask, Flip Flop)
3 . America's most Ignorant Mayor, "Mumbles

Menino'(Let's give the Peace Loving Muslims some huge
slum property for "America's
Largest Mosque") paid for with your tax dollars! Then
Islamonazi's will have the capability of building
the the largest terror center in the U.S.of A!!

WE AHRE WICKED PROUD OF THESE ACCOMPLISHMENTS!

Anybody notice that our "fearless leaders" are all Dumbocrats? The 9/11 flights left from here? We have a Mayor who cannot wait to pay off his pals with this Mosque!
Didi I forget to mention the "Mosque", in question is funded by terrorists?
....that's okay... we still think it's "wicked cool" cuz we are surrounded by the oh so WICKED SMAHT!!!!
How's that for a rant ? Gosh.. I Hate this place!!!
