I read the link and thank you for offering it. I am not a Bush fan, Bush one or two, but I am also not a big conspiracy theorist also.
What I get from that, and granted it is hard to follow, is that industrialists of that era were very intertwined. I also note that I have not heard of any of the "explosive" books mentioned in the article. If they have been published and are credible, I would love to read them. If not, it kind of reads like the National Enquirer, hinting about things, slightly alleging things, taking certain facts and coming to slightly dubious conclusions. Nothing new. People still argue, with the same slight facts, that Roosevelt let Pearl Harbor be bombed to get us into WWII.
Plus, and this might only be inside baseball to some people, but the same Harriman mentioned so prominently was the money behind Pamela Harriman, a huge benefactor to Bill Clinton. According to Democrat insiders,(and reported repeatedly in Vanity Fair) she was the force and money behind Bill Clinton. So I guess Nazi profiteering is the reason Bill Clinton became our President? How far can we take this?
Hate Bush or love Bush. What Prescott Bush did or did not do is a great fun political debate. But it is irrelevant. The country voted for GW twice. Money his grandfather made legally or illegally had nothing to do with it. If you think so, you really really do not understand politics. He did not spend his grandfather's money to win election. He spent money raised by current political donors. Same as Hillary, same as Barrack, same as Bill.
I love a great mystery as much as anyone. This has no legs. Being a Bay Area guy, I am still more interested in the Zodiac Killer.
Which I am not.
