This was also taken from Tom Tomorrow - What's the old quote? A liberal is someone who's so fair-minded, he won't take his own side in an argument?

I found this article thru this blog website via Tom Tomorrow. Here's the skinny from the commentary of Nielsen Hayden -

http://nielsenhayden.com/electrolite/archives/002301.html#002301 -

(1) Prominent Republican Thomas Kean, former governor of New Jersey, is the new chairman of the 9/11 commission.

(2) Kean is also a director of petroleum company Amerada Hess.

(3) In 1988, Amerada Hess formed a joint venture with Saudi company Delta Oil.

(4) One of Delta Oil's backers is Khalid bin Mahfouz, who is--here's where you need to clap your hat firmly to your skull--married to one of Osama Bin Laden's sisters. And suspected of financing Al Qaeda. Oh, and named in one of the lawsuits brought by 9/11 victims. Did we mention that he's also been involved in deals with the Carlyle Group, the ultra-secret investment group that includes, among others, George H. W. Bush? And also in deals with--yes, your tinfoil hat, properly adjusted, plays 1980s popular music!--BCCI?

(5) Three weeks before Kean's appointment, Amerada Hess severed its ties with Delta.
