    George H W Bush and George W Bush had many business dealings with the Bin Laden family since the late 1970's involving oil deals in the Middle East.

    Why was this never investigated after the attacks of 9/11?

    Why was the Bin Laden family ushered out of America so quickly after the attacks of 9/11, before they could be questioned?

    Did the Bush family know more about the attacks of 9/11 than they'll admit?

    Bush and Co. have left many imporntant questions unanswered...

    Investigated by whom?
    I am sure it was investigated by somebody or you would never have known about it in the first place.
    Certainly various journalists have done some investigation, what the government has done I wouldn't know (and neither would you).
    Association isn't automatic guilt though. The US government and a large number of prominent people in the US have done business with the Bin Ladens. Should they all be investigated or only the Bush's?

    What exactly are you alleging?

    Or are you just throwing out a bunch of eerie and vague questions <cue spooky background music> that make something sound "just not right" while at the same time avoiding being specific enough to be pinned down on anything, a la Michael Moore?

    If you love conspiracy theories so much, go watch Loose Change. You'll have a blast for a few hours and then you can come back to reality.

    Why do you you feel duty bound to rush to your government's rescue without any specific rebuttal? Just this vague and insipid ad hominem?

    Is this thing of yours overt or internalized?

    a) There's nothing to rebut; how could I be specific in a rebuttal when there was nothing specific in the allegation?

    b) I don't know whether the "thing" of mine is overt or internalized, but I do know that your obsession with trying to shoot me down every time I defend anything related to American foreign policy is overt.

    If I go rob a bank today, do you expect the cops to fan out and track down all the Joneses in the world?

    It's ridiculous to assume that anyone with direct ties to Osama weren't investigated, I don't even know how you come to that conclusion, other than that you've been watching too many Michael Moore films.
