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  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.
