I have many questions about the events of this day, the lack of blood once again would be one. The passage of the Brady bill, (Another step towards gun control in the USA), and the fact that James Brady was shot with a 22 caliber weapon. This is one of the worst weapons to be shot in the head with, for it has the force to enter the skull, but not the force to exit. Leaving the bullet ricocheting inside the skull!

John Hinkley Jr, attempted to assassinate President Ronald Reagan in 1981, interesting was the fact that the Hinkleys were long time friends of then vice president Herbert Walker Bush. Hinkleys father was also a multi-millionaire Texas oilman and President and Chairman of the independent oil and gas exploration firm Vanderbilt Energy Corporation. (Anderson Cooper Vanderbilt).

Hinckley’s older brother, Scott, had a dinner date scheduled at the home of Neil Bush, the Vice President’s son, the day after the assassination attempt on Reagan. A March 31, 1981 news headline by Associated Press confirmed this: Bush Son Had Dinner Plans With Hinckley Brother Before Shooting.

This is probably no more of a coincidence the the Bushes friendship with the Bin Laden family, who were flown out of the United States immediately after the 9/11 attacks when there were no flights allowed in the United States.

But the coincidences do not end there!

According to the Washington Post, the Carlyle Group met at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in NYC one day before 9/11. In attendance at this meeting were former president George H. W. Bush and Shafiq bin Laden, the brother of Osama:

The Carlyle Group is a large private-equity investment firm, closely associated with officials of the Bush and Reagan administrations, and has considerable ties to Saudi oil money, including ties to the bin Laden family.

This morning [September 10, 2001] it is holding its annual investor conference at the Ritz Carlton hotel in Washington, DC. Among the guests of honor is investor Shafig bin Laden, brother of Osama bin Laden. [Observer, 6/16/2002; London Times, 5/8/2003] Former President George H. W. Bush, who makes speeches on behalf of the Carlyle Group and is also senior adviser to its Asian Partners fund [Wall Street Journal, 9/27/2001] , attended the conference the previous day, but is not there today (see (8:00 a.m.) September 11, 2001). [Washington Post, 3/16/2003]

9/10/2001 was indeed a busy day. For also it was announced on that day that the government had lost 2 trillion dollars, this at a time when the national debt was only 6 trillion dollars.
