The Bush family has an history of making its monies through affiliations with brutal regimes.  Senator Prescott Bush was involved with Nazi big business during the 1930s and well past Pearl Harbor when he finally faced trading with the enemy accusations:

His son and grandson (presidents both) have been pals with the Saudis, perhaps the most brutal and corrupt regime in the Middle East and the one from which al Qaeda emerged and 15 of the 19 who perpetrated 9/11 derived.  Looks as though he has gone on a fruitless mission to achieve pay backs for their previous largesse and political support.  Swords and jewelry aside, it does not look as though he got very far.  The Saudis have no intention of stirring up the Iranians on anyone’s behalf.

And so it goes behind the fog of our media reporting.
