Does anyone truly believe that any of us has all of the facts?  Or 
course none of this would be particularly damning if the CBC 
documentary crew wasn't revealing ongoing links between the Saudi 
government and and Bin Laden right up to Sept 11, 2001.

One of the most damning clauses:

"Shortly after the Malaysia meeting, al-Mihdhar and al-Hazmi [two of 
the hijackers] are met my Omar al-Bayoumi, a Saudi national who works 
for the Saudi civil aviation authority. Just prior to picking up the 
two would-be hijackers, Al-Bayoumi meets with a member of the Saudi 
consulate in LA – a man later connected to terrorist activity. 
Al-Bayoumi takes al-Mihdhar and al-Hazmi to San Diego, puts them up in 
an apartment, signs a lease, holds a party for them, enrolls them in 
flight school and gives them money. Later, the FBI concludes that 
al-Bayoumi is likely a Saudi intelligence agent. Al-Bayoumi also passes 
on thousands of dollars to the hijackers that originate from Princess 
Haifa, wife of Prince Bandar Saudi ambassador to the US."

Later, the documentary goes on to explain that Prince Bandar has 
extremely close ties to the Bush White House in particular, and to the 
White House in general.  Is wife of the man affectionately known within 
the Bush family as "Bandar Bush", then, a black sheep too?
