Family members of the late al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden were among four people killed in a private jet crash in southern England, a Saudi ambassador said, but did not further identify the dead.One moment now, what's this? A Saudi official is mourning people who could have the same twisted visions as the monster who engineered the horror on 9-11? And they allow them to run a business back in their autocracy too? I think there's certainly cause for worry here.
Prince Mohammed Bin Nawaf Bin Abdel-Aziz, the Saudi ambassador to the United Kingdom, offered his condolences to the wealthy bin Laden family, which owns a major construction company in Saudi Arabia.
"The embassy will follow up on the incident and its circumstances with the concerned British authorities and work on speeding up the handover of the bodies of the victims to the kingdom for prayer and burial," the ambassador said in a statement tweeted by the embassy late Friday.
Police say a pilot and three passengers died when an executive jet crashed into a parking lot and burst into flames while trying to land at Blackbushe Airport in southern England Friday afternoon. The plane had been flying from Malpensa Airport in Milan.Thank goodness no pedestrians were hurt.
No one on the ground was hurt. Police and the Air Accidents Investigation Branch launched a joint investigation.
The bin Laden family disowned Osama in 1994 when Saudi Arabia stripped him of his citizenship because of his militant activities. The al-Qaida leader was killed by U.S. special forces in Pakistan in 2011.I wouldn't take that info at face value. Remember, there's such a thing as taqqiya, and, they could've been funding him through their businesses. Has that ever been investigated?
The family is a large and wealthy one. Osama bin Laden's billionaire father Mohammed had more than 50 children and founded the Binladen Group, a sprawling construction conglomerate awarded many major building contracts in the Sunni kingdom.There's certainly something interesting here. The family of a tyrant who plotted suicide trojan horse attacks on airlines suffered some deaths in plane crashes themselves. Could that be a special form of divine punishment that struck them? It's an excellent question that won't be easy to answer.
Mohammed bin Laden died in a plane crash in Saudi Arabia in 1967. One of his sons, Salem, was killed when his ultralight aircraft flew into power lines in San Antonio, Texas, in 1988.
