How did the Bushes, America’s most powerful political family, become gradually seduced by and entangled with their Saudi counterparts?

Why did the Bush administration approve the secret airlift of 140 Saudis, including two dozen relatives of Osama bin Laden, just after September 11? Did one of the Saudi royals on the planes have any advance knowledge of the attacks?

What specifically chosen words did George W. Bush say on national television during the 2000 election campaign to trigger Muslim support? How did the Saudi-funded Islamic groups propel Bush to victory in Florida, thus winning him the presidency?

The answers to these questions lie in a largely hidden relationship between the House of Bush and the House of Saud that began in the mid-1970s. An amazing weave of money, power and influence, it takes place all over the globe and involves war, covert operations and huge deals in the oil and defense industries. But most horrifying of all, the secret liaison between the two families helped trigger the Age of Terror and give rise to the tragedy of 9/11.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Unger has done America and the world a huge favor by clearly and precisely documenting how the Bush inner circle is in the very deep pockets of the brutal Saudi dictators.” 

    Michael Moore, director of Fahrenheit 9/11

  • “This is a very powerful, well-researched and sober book that leaves the reader both enlightened and more than a little disturbed.” 

    Guardian (London)

  • “Potentially explosive…Unger…pieces together the highly unusual and close personal and financial relationships between the Bush family and the ruling family of Saudi Arabia—and questions the implications for Bush’s preparedness, or possible lack thereof, for September 11…There’s little doubt that with this intensely researched, well written book he has poured more flame onto the political fires of 2004.” 

    Publishers Weekly

  • “[Unger’s] evidence is persuasive and reveals a devastating story of Orwellian proportions, replete with political deception, shifting allegiances, and lethal global consequences…President Bush insists that we will prevail, yet as Unger so effectively concludes, ‘Never before has an American president been so closely tied to a foreign power that harbors and supports our country's mortal enemies.’”
