#2 Not really.

One of Bin Laden's targets was the House of Saud, which he viewed as the corrupt guardians of Mecca and wanted to replace with a caliphate. The Sauds, for their part, didn't mind the existence of al-Qaeda, as long as it (and Osama) stayed out of the Magic Kingdom. However, the Bin Laden family themselves exercise a bit of influence within KSA; hence the allowing of the widows and children in.

All easily research-able to those that take the time.

It seems that those that ignore history are condemned to post ignorant commentary.
