Where does Bin Laden get his money from?
    #610670 - 04/17/02 10:35 AM (14 years, 7 months ago)

The Government says that Bin Laden get's his money from illegal drugs.

I've heard that Bin Laden also makes money from legal food ingredients that you find in things like Altoids and Pepsi.

Is this true?

Can someone give me a list of legal products Bin Laden profits from, or give me a link to a site that has the list?

THANKS!

He made American dollars before, so that should last him a couple life times. What is the exchange rate to Afffie, like 2000 to 1.?

Saudi Arabia is helping the cause as well. The drug is started by the anti-drug people not the anti-terrorist people. In fact they give soldiers drugs, ever seen Jacobs ladder?

Saudi Arabia is helping the cause?

There are two factions of people in Saudi Arabia, the greedy businessman who took control of government, and business about the oil with the u.s., and the other's are the common people, mostly muslims, with anti u.s. trade philosophy.

Which part is funding Bin Laden you think?

So Gum Arabic is the only legal food ingredient that Bin Laden makes money from?

Anyone know how much he makes relative to the amount he makes from drugs?

I don't think Afghanistan is/was the leading producer of opiates... Opium was illegal under Taliban rule. I here China has poppy fields that make Afghanistan look like a personal garden. PLUS, I believe it was the American Government or something that showed the Afghan people HOW to grow opium

Of course Afghanistan was'nt growing opium under Taliban rule, that was the problem with the "mafia" type organization that is perpetrating the war. Heroin is the largest and most profitable product there is. You can't just decide to stop the trade, heroin addicts like Bush will get pissed off! Also China is not the first producer of opium, although facts surrounding this are relative, (because the trade is illegal) But South American Opium is a little ahead of Indo china, and then nowadays Afghanistan will pull into the number three spot, china probraly had it before. Plus China only has a history of opium production for less then 50 years. I would say that the next people in line is India, Iran, Iraq.

I hate it how they try to say that when we buy drugs we are funding terrorism.
i think that's bullshit, i think there just trying to kill 2 birds with one stone.
What about the billions of $$s we spend on oil each year, maybe that has somethin to do with it...those fuckers aint' shit without us

Correct. Bin Laden made his money off his families construction business. They got all the government contracts back in the day. He wasnt always a militant terrorist or so they say.

Lets not forget that the bin Laden terror network was trained, funded and in large part armed by the CIA in the 1980's. They were used in the war against the Russians in Afghanistan, with US support. Not that this excuses bin Laden but let's be realistic about his orgins and admit that the US is in part responsible for the creation of fundamentalism in the area....

How do you get that..? The Chineese have been smoking opium since the beginning of written language, they are the creators of American Opium Dens which were really popular in New York and SanFrancisco a hundred years ago.. Their is an entire wing deadicated to the chineese opium trade in the museum of natural history in China town...

Today however I would think the biggest growers of poppies would be the countries with the most corupt government like Columbia, China, Mexico, and the United States...

I don't think there is hardly any opium production in the u.s. mainly, because any smart american does'n want to confuse himself into the role of an international drug dealer. Opium was introduced into China in the 1800's from India. China bought alot of opium for a long time, until all the money in their country dissappeared, and then the government was angry, and they said opium is illegal, and then the British said fuck you , were going to sell you opium whether you like it or not, and then because Britains is so powerful they did. Opium became a government tool by the Maoists in 1950's to revenge the opium war against them, since then they have become a major dealer of heroin, and recently cocaine. If you want to belive that Columbia is number 1 in Cocaine production, you are wrong, it's so small, however if you believe Columbia is number one transhipment point, you are probraly right, their is a difference. What about Thailand, that is definitely a big transhipment point of heroin from the pacific, and producer. So again, I list South America, then Pacific Islands, then Middle East, then China, Other countries, then the U.s. But you can have your opinion also. Maybe the middle east will outrank the Pacific islands now. maybe china out ranks the Pacific Islands, who knows? It's secret.

Al Queda made a bundle off of the legal honey trade, and illegal smuggling of cigarettes in the US. They also ran a very clever scam redeeming coupons.

Of course, his dad owning the largest construction and venture capital company in S.A doesn't hurt either.
