Yep, our WTC towers were knocked down 10 years ago by one of the Bin Laden’s. Now just in time for the 10th anniversary of 9/11 they announce they are going to build the world’s tallest building in Saudi Arabia. You know, the country that provided most of the hijackers and money for that wonderful little event.
Kingdom Holding Co., the investment firm headed by billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, said it signed a $1.2 billion deal with the Saudi Binladen Group to build Kingdom Tower on the outskirts of the Red Sea city of Jiddah.
“The decision of the partners to build the world’s tallest building further demonstrates their belief in investing in this nation,” said Talal Al Maiman, a board member of KHC and the Jeddah Economic Co., a KHC-affiliate that signed the deal with the Binladen Group.
The Saudi construction giant is owned by the family of Osama bin Laden. The family disavowed the slain al-Qaida terror group leader years ago.
