Osama bin Laden is Mohammed bin Laden's 17th child and the only child of Mohammed's 10th (and last) wife, Hamida al-Attas. Osama has at least 50 (half) siblings.

A meeting between the Bin Laden family and the Bush family isn't all that unlikely at all, and I'm not saying that because of some ridiculous racial stereotype. As has been mentioned before, both had, and quite possibly still do, interests in large companies, the Carlyle Group included. So them meeting to discuss business is pretty likely actually. Other links are that both have been heavily involved in unsuccessful oil pipeline ventures in the middle East and in former Soviet territory, including Azerbijan, for example, so they would have had meetings at least a few times before September 11, none of which were pointed to as indicators of conspiracy.

The Bush family has had plenty of more unsavoury friends than a brother of Bin Laden though, what about their very close relationship with the House of Saud, rulers of Saudi Arabia, which is a repressive regime that is widely known for, and curiously not ashamed of, its flagrant human rights violations and crimes against humanity. Dubya's daddy has been extensively involved with the House of Saud on many occasions, and has both business and personal links with them. If I were a conspiracy theorist I'd point to that being the reason that, despite most of the September 11 hi-jackers being of Saudi origin, not Afghan origin, anti-western and pro Al Quieda sentiment in Saudi Arabia has scarcely been investigated. Of course I'm not.
