FTR #216 Trouble on Oiled Waters, Part III

Lis­ten:
MP3 Side 1 [1] | Side 2 [2]

This pro­gram fur­ther devel­ops the sub­ject of the clan­des­tine pow­er pol­i­tics of the petro­le­um indus­try, begin­ning with dis­cus­sion of Otto Von Bolschwing, a key SS intel­li­gence offi­cer and (for a time) Adolf Eich­man­n’s supe­ri­or in the admin­is­tra­tion of Hitler’s pol­i­cy toward the Jews.

Von Bolschwing [3] became a key CIA oper­a­tive after the war. One of Von Bolschwing’s pro­teges in the post-war peri­od was Helene Von Damm, who select­ed the list of per­son­nel from which Ronald Rea­gan’s cab­i­net appointees were select­ed

Von Bolschwing also over­saw a com­plex Nazi intel­li­gence gam­bit in the Mid­dle East. Uti­liz­ing rene­gade British intel­li­gence offi­cer Jack Phil­by, Von Bolschwing autho­rized appar­ent col­lab­o­ra­tion between Sau­di king Ibn Saud and the Zion­ists. This osten­si­ble col­lab­o­ra­tion entailed a plan to pro­mote Jew­ish emi­gra­tion from Europe to Pales­tine under the pro­tec­tion of the Saud­is. Like Ibn Saud (and of course Von Bolschwing and his Third Reich supe­ri­ors), Phil­by was a rabid anti-Semi­te and had no inten­tion of aid­ing the Jews. His “coop­er­a­tion” with the Zion­ists was a decep­tion, intend­ed to betray both the Jews and Great Britain.

After secur­ing British approval for the osten­si­ble Saudi/Zionist col­lab­o­ra­tion, Phil­by was instru­men­tal in leak­ing news of the oper­a­tion to the Arabs. The result was height­ened Arab out­rage at the British and con­se­quent sym­pa­thy for the Third Reich.

The sec­ond half of the pro­gram focus­es on a com­plex con­spir­a­cy between the Third Reich, the afore­men­tioned Jack Phil­by, Allen Dulles, Sau­di Ara­bia and major Amer­i­can and British oil com­pa­nies. A for­mer attor­ney for the pow­er­ful Wall Street law firm of Sul­li­van and Cromwell, Dulles worked for the OSS dur­ing World War II. (The OSS was Amer­i­ca’s World War II civil­ian intel­li­gence ser­vice.)

Dulles was a trai­tor to the Unit­ed States, com­plic­it in the financ­ing of Nazi indus­try and cen­tral­ly involved with wartime duplic­i­ty by the petro­le­um indus­try.

Sau­di Ara­bia col­lab­o­rat­ed with Nazi Ger­many, while black­mail­ing Great Britain and the Unit­ed States. Dulles and the major Amer­i­can and British oil com­pa­nies were instru­men­tal in arrang­ing this black­mail. Because the U.S. was able to “out­bid” the Unit­ed King­dom in pay­ing off the Saud­is, Amer­i­can petro­le­um inter­ests emerged dom­i­nant in the con­test for con­trol of Sau­di Ara­bi­an oil.
