Doing deals with the Bin Ladens

Amazing little story this.

First off we have a report that “state construction company PT Pembangunan Perumahan (PP) has secured Rp 16.2 trillion ($1.8 billion) worth of contracts this year, including two with the Binladen Group construction conglomerate and holding company in the Middle East”.

Bin Laden? You mean that Bin Laden?

Yep sort of. Well not him specifically but rather his huge family (Osama’s father Sheikh Mohammed bin Laden didn’t waste any time and fathered 53 children with his 22 wives).

Unsurprisingly, the Binladen Group have always gone to great lengths to distance themselves from the rather unsavory exploits of its most famous family member.

And if you check out
Binladen Group’s current website all seems to be in order.

But if I were also to tell you that the Group’s previous website had been
purchased with a pre-set expiration date of Sept. 11, 2001, you’d probably think I was talking a lot of nonsense.

Or maybe not.
