...Bush, bin Laden,

...Bush, bin Laden, 9-11...As an aside, this is the same Prince Bandar, who, some 15years later, and again acting as a spokesman for the terrorist regimeof the Saudi royal family, refused to let U.S. investigatorsinterview the families of 15 of the 9/11 hijackers, all of whom Saudicitizens. It was the wife of Prince Bandar, and the Saudi governmentwhich also provided over $200,000.00 to Osama Bassnanwho in turn provided cash to 9/11 hijackers, Khalid al-Midhar andNawaq al-Hazmi.Just as we know that the Saudi royals and other Saudi familieshelped finance the 9/11 terrorist attack on the United States(34-37), we also know, based on Reagan-Bush administration documentswhich escaped destruction in the 1980s, that “Saudi Arabiahad agreed to give financial support to the Nicaraguan contras duringthe period when U.S. funds for the contras were virtually exhaustedand Congress had refused to appropriate additional funds”(40). In yet another administration note it is written: “Bandar isgiving $25 million to Contras.”TERRORISM IN NICARAGUA“Somoza may be a son of a bitch, but he’s our son of a bitch.”—President Franklin Delano RooseveltFor two generations the Somoza family had used terrorism,torture, and mass murder to intimidate and control the people ofNicaragua and to remove all opposition as they systematically plunderedthe country and became multi-millionaires. Although a smallclique of closely aligned Nicaraguan families, and of course, theCIA, supported the Somoza dictatorship, the people of Nicaraguadid not. In 1956, Somoza Garcia was gunned down. Unfortunately,for the people of Nicaragua, his son Anastasio Somoza Debayle,“the vampire dictator,” took control. The Somozas continued toplunder Nicaragua (51).In 1972, Nicaragua and the Somoza dictatorship were rattledby a massive earthquake which injured and killed over 100,000Nicaraguans. The Somoza family, however, capitalized on the miseryof the people, by seizing, with the help of the National Guard,over $30 million in international relief (51).In 1979, Somoza was finally overthrown by a rebel groupwho called themselves the Sandinistas. The Sandinista National235

America BetrayedLiberation Front, founded in 1962, was named after General CesarAugust Sandino, a revolutionary hero who had been murdered bySomoza Garcia.When the Sandinistas came to power, they formed a democraticgovernment which accepted help from Cuba and the SovietUnion, as well as from the World Bank. The Sandinistas offered asocial program that was designed to improve education, health care,and social services. The Carter administration, and the World Bank,pledged over 100 million dollars in financial support to the newregime, and the country prospered. The World Bank called its developmentprojects “extraordinarily successful” and “in some sectors”of Nicaragua “better than anywhere else in the world.”Improved health care, education and social services?Wall Street and the CIA became alarmed (50).When Reagan and Bush took office in 1981, they canceledall financial aid to Nicaragua, which they accused of being a “Marxist”and “communist” state. The Reagan-Bush team imposed anembargo in an attempt to destroy the economy and overthrow thegovernment. On November 17, 1981, President Reagan signedNational Security Directive 17, which authorized covert support toanti-Sandinista terrorists who wish to overthrow the democraticallyelected government of Nicaragua. Over $19 million was providedinitially, to train a guerrilla force which would operate and launchterrorist attacks from training camps in Honduras and Costa Rica(50,51,52).Thus, the “Contras” were born.The Contras consisted of former Somoza National Guardunits, men who had ruthlessly used Nazi-tactics during the rein ofSomoza, to keep the people terrified and under control. This wasthe same National Guard, who helped Somoza steal over $30 millionin international relief.Now, with the backing of the Reagan-Bush administration,the Contras were turned loose on the citizens and cities of Nicaragua.The Contras proceeded to blow up schools, health centers,bridges, boats, government offices, and massacred tens of thousandsof innocent men, women, and children (51,52).These attacks were not entirely random. Doctors, nurses, andteachers were singled out, as were volunteers in the health and236
